| RGIII to start, barring any setback|
Browns QB recovering from concussion

|Robert Griffin III will start Sunday vs. the Steelers barring any setbacks, coach Hue Jackson said Thursday.
He's been cleared from his concussion to play, and returned to practice Thursday. He looked good in practice and appears ready to go.
"He looked like Robert," said Jackson. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: There was some talk that Cody Kessler would get the start this week with RGIII in the concussion protocol but it appears RGIII is on track to play. The Steelers have nothing to play for and will be resting their offensive stars but the Browns have been a train wreck this year making it difficult to trust Griffin in the season finale.

FFToday's Take: The Browns have yet to name a starting QB for their game against the Bengals, however barring a setback it appears that RGIII will get the nod over Josh McCown and Cody Kessler. Griffin was cleared for contact last week during the team's bye.

Kessler in concussion protocol
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 21, 2:00 pm
|Josh McCown will have a chance to prevent the Browns from going 0-16 when he starts Sunday against the red-hot New York Giants at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Hue Jackson named McCown the starter on Monday with rookie Cody Kessler in the concussion protocol with his second concussion in 29 days. It will mark McCown's third start of the season. (Cleveland Plain-Dealer)|
FFToday's Take: McCown may start but he's no guaranteed to take every snap at quarterback making him a QB2 at best against the Giants. Robert Griffin III will start practicing this week, but hasn't yet been cleared for full contact. The Browns have yet to win a game this season.

Will not practice this week

|BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Robert Griffin III's next comeback isn't quite ready to begin.
Cleveland's quarterback, who broke a bone in his left shoulder while making his debut with the Browns in the season opener, has been cleared for non-contact drills and could play again this season.
FFToday's Take: Robert Griffin III (shoulder) may be able to come back near the end of the season but Cleveland will continue to start Cody Kessler in the interim. Kessler was benched in the second half last week and won't be worth starting in Week 11 versus Pittsburgh.

On track to return from collar bone injury in Week 8
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 26, 3:46 pm
|Josh McCown is on track to return from a collarbone injury that kept him out the past five weeks.
The Cleveland Browns quarterback was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
McCown told reporters he was "moving in the right direction" to be able to play Sunday versus the New York Jets. Browns coach Hue Jackson didn't announce a starter Wednesday.
FFToday's Take: Cleveland finally gets positive injury news on the quarterback front with Josh McCown's status improving by the day. Barring a set back he is set to return as the team's starter to face a Jets defense that has had issues defending the pass (NYJ rank 6th in passing yards allowed per game). Kevin Hogan will serve as the backup while Cody Kessler remains in concussion protocol.
