Brandon Weeden, Colt McCoy Still Sidelined, Thad Lewis May Start At QB
Third-string quarterback Thad Lewis is one day closer to starting for the Browns.
With Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy not practicing again because of right shoulder injuries, Lewis worked with Cleveland's first-team offense on Thursday as the Browns prepared for Sunday's season finale against Pittsburgh.
Weeden and McCoy were hurt last week against Denver, and although coach Pat Shurmur has not ruled them out, it appears likely that Lewis will get his first NFL regular-season action.
Lewis has spent two seasons with Browns, but has yet to appear in a game.
"He's got a live arm," Shurmur said. "He's very athletic. He'll execute our offense the right way and I'm glad he's going to, if he becomes the starter here, will have an opportunity. He'll do a good job."
The team signed free agent quarterback Josh Johnson, who would back up Lewis if Weeden and McCoy can't play.
