Found August 27, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor was placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list and will miss at least the first six weeks of the season. Taylor is recovering from offseason pectoral surgery. After the first six weeks of the season, the Browns will have three weeks to either activate him or place Taylor on injured reserve. Cleveland also waived/injured defensive linemen Marcus Benard and Auston English and defensive back Antwuan Reed and placed linebackers Chris Gocong and Emmanuel Acho on injured reserve. To bolster their defensive line, Ernest Owusu was claimed off waivers from Minnesota. Coach Pat Shurmur also said running back Monterio Hardesty has not been dropped on the depth chart and sat out practice only because he was sore following the third preseason game.

Browns Preseason Game #3: Winners and Losers

Who caught your eye? Did someone stand out? Who blew it? That’s what were interested in this morning. Winners and losers. Kind of the opposite of last week. We could name an awful lot of losers from this past weekend. But let’s start with the positives- WINNER: Josh Gordon. Three catches for 50 yards, and a highlight reel play over Nnamdi Asomugha. Well, highlight reel for the...

Browns' Weeden working on ball security

Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden knows he needs to get a grip. Weeden has already fumbled three times during the exhibition season, losing the ball twice and costing Cleveland points with his turnovers. In Friday's 27-10 loss to Philadelphia, Weeden fumbled twice in the first quarter. The first one wasn't his fault as his protection broke down on a botched screen...

Cleveland Brown’s Pat Shurmur: A tale of two coaches

Pat Shurmur walked into quite the situation when being hand-picked by team president Mike Holmgren to coach the Cleveland Browns prior to the 2011 season. Since their return to the NFL in 1999, the Browns have been through six head coaches in that 13 year time period with very little success. Every single move Shurmur made would be critiqued to an almost unnecessary degree by media...

Browns quarterback Cot McCoy will start Thursday night when the Browns take on the Chicago Bears, Brandon Weeden will not play.

Why Brandon Weeden will be the best rookie quarterback in 2012

I have evaluated all the quarterback situations around the league and I have made my final conclusion.  That is that, Brandon Weeden will perform better than any rookie quarterback in the NFL Draft.  I know everyone is wondering about Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck, but I think Weeden can be the best.
