Cleveland Browns cornerback Sheldon Brown’s streak of consecutive games played will end at 175 and he will miss the team’s Week 17 barn-burner against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown suffered a concussion midway through the Browns’ Week 16 loss to the Denver Broncos when wide receiver Brandon Stokley lowered a shoulder into him on a pick play to free up Demaryius Thomas on a crossing pattern. The veteran leader will hit the free agent market this offseason as a 34-year-old coming off of a solid season with 57 tackles, two interceptions and a touchdown. Brown will be accompanied on the sidelines by rookies Brandon Weeden (shoulder) and Trent Richardson (ankle) , and tight end Jordan Cameron (concussion). Thaddeus Lewis, Montario Hardesty, and Brad Smelley will all likely see an increased role during the team’s final game of the 2012 season.
