The Browns got some awful news today when they learned that RG3‘s shoulder injury will sideline him for an extended period of time, perhaps even ruling him out for the remainder of the 2016 season. Still, Cleveland does not expect to go QB shopping. Head coach Hue Jackson says the Browns are “comfortable where we are” with the quarterbacks currently on the roster (Twitter link via Mary Kay Cabot of Clevleand.com).
If the Browns do stand pat, that means they’ll forge ahead with one-time starter Josh McCown under center. Behind him will be third-round rookie Cody Kessler and the team also has rookie Kevin Hogan on practice squad. It seems possible that Hogan could be promoted to the 53-man roster, though there is no official word on that yet.
McCown, 37, joined the Browns as a free agent prior to the 2015 season. In eight games, McCown completed 63.7% of his passes, threw for 2,109 yards, and had 12 passing touchdowns against four interceptions.
