Browns QB Campbell in concussion program

Posted: Updated:

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns quarterback Jason Campbell is following the NFL's protocol on head injuries and will likely miss this week's game against Jacksonville.

Campbell sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss against Pittsburgh when he was slammed in the head by blitzing Steelers cornerback William Gay on a sack in the third quarter. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Campbell was at the Browns' training facility on Monday before being sent home. Chudzinski said Campbell has not yet been ruled out against the Jaguars, but indicated Brandon Weeden will probably start again for the Browns (4-7).

Weeden, who began the season as Cleveland's starter, replaced Campbell and was booed by Cleveland fans as he came on the field.

Chudzinski believes Weeden still has confidence - and his teammate's backing - despite his shaky status. Chudzinski also said there's "a good chance" the Browns will sign another quarterback this week.
