Browns safety Usama Young will start against Buffalo in place of Eric Hagg, who was beaten for a touchdown pass last week in Cincinnati. Young, who started eight games last season, has yet to play a defensive snap this season. Hagg started Cleveland's first two games. He gave up a 44-yard TD pass in the 34-27 loss to the Bengals. Browns tight end Alex Smith was also inactive Sunday. He sustained a concussion last week and was briefly hospitalized. There were no major lineup changes for the Bills. As expected, running back C.J. Spiller will start for Fred Jackson, sidelined with a sprained knee. Spiller enters the game as the NFL's leading rusher, averaging 10.1 yards per carry.

Cleveland Browns fans expected to be patient once again

Cleveland, OH. Heading into the 2012 NFL regular season, is there a team who has less hope this year than the Cleveland Browns?

In fact, based on the overall talent level in the NFC...

Brandon Weeden: “We’ve got to start faster, and that’s on us.”

Brandon Weeden after the Browns’ 24-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills- “I think, and I’m speaking offensively, we started too slow. I think after a week like we had last week, that’s disappointing. I think that’s the difference in some of these games. I think you just can’t be where we were in the first half, 0-5 or 0-6 on third down and doing some things early and expect...
