After losing Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown to shoulder injuries during their first two games, both losses, the Browns will start their third QB in as many weeks this Sunday against Miami. Head coach Hue Jackson revealed Monday that the team needed to find a veteran signal-caller quickly, and it has in Whitehurst. The 34-year-old possesses recent experience, having appeared in a combined five games with the Colts and Titans last season.

In total, Whitehurst has amassed 25 appearances and nine starts with four different teams. The 2006 third-round pick from Clemson has completed 55.1 percent of his 372 career attempts and tossed 10 touchdowns against seven interceptions.

    Watching Wentz last week and tonight, looks like maybe the powers to be might’ve made a mistake.

    Clipboard Jesus doesn’t want to start he wants to hold his clipboard and watch from the sideline. He proved that when he was in Seattle he did not attend any of the off season workout stuff Hasselbeck got the players together when he knew he wasn’t going to be back. Whitehurst didn’t attend any of the workouts or have much contact with the players. The guy had made a killing having one of the best jobs in the world a back up QB make millions and have little chance of a major injury. Good luck Cleveland not a fan but if he has to play for you you’re in more trouble than you’re in now. He will be injured before he plays a full game for you.
