Browns considering benching Weeden

Posted: Updated:

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns coach Rob Chudzinski is considering a change at quarterback after Brandon Weeden struggled during Sunday's loss at Green Bay.

Weeden had his second straight poor performance and Chudzinski acknowledged during his Monday news conference that "Brandon has to play better." But Chudzinski said there are other issues and that he and his staff will evaluate all positions before making any lineup changes.

Weeden completed just 17 of 42 passes for 149 yards in the 31-13 loss. Unlike last week, when Chudzinski supported Weeden following a loss to Detroit, the coach was noncommittal and seems to be leaning toward starting backup Jason Campbell this week when the Browns (3-4) visit the Kansas City Chiefs (7-0).

Weeden returned to the starting lineup two weeks ago after Brian Hoyer suffered a season-ending knee injury.
