Browns QB Weeden trying to tune out booing

Posted: Updated:

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Brandon Weeden expects to hear boos again, but Cleveland's beleaguered quarterback knows he must block them out.

Weeden, who has twice lost his starting job this season, will return for a third crack on Sunday when the Browns host the Jacksonville Jaguars. Weeden is back in the lineup because Jason Campbell sustained a concussion last week against Pittsburgh and is following the NFL's program for head injuries.

Weeden was booed the moment he took the field against the Steelers, and there's sure to be negativity directed at him again this week. Weeden said the taunts bother his teammates more than him and he'll try to tune them out and use the booing as motivation.

The 30-year-old said he hasn't lost confidence and believes he can still be a starter in the league.
