04:07 PM ET 09.19 | Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden's sprained thumb on his throwing hand does not need surgery. This season, Weeden has only thrown for 516 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. Not much you can do with the pigskin if you're constantly under pressure, so this can't all rest on the shoulders of Weeden. Brian Hoyer will likely not see much more success this week when he steps into the lineup to make up for Weeden's absence.

Unfortunately, his ability to read a defense, scrambling, and team leadership skills do need surgery.

The Browns have been getting a lot of attention on this site lately, and for all the wrong reasons.
