BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden has been cleared to practice after sustaining a concussion and will likely start Sunday in Oakland. Weeden was injured in the final minutes of Sunday's 20-14 win over Pittsburgh. He was taken to the locker room and backup Colt McCoy came in for two series to close out Cleveland's second win in 18 games against the Steelers. Shurmur said the team will get Weeden ready to face the Raiders, and unless he suffers an unexpected setback, the 29-year-old will make his 12th straight start. Weeden finished 17 of 26 for 158 yards with a touchdown and an interception before he was injured. McCoy, who sustained a serious head injury late last season against the Steelers, did not throw a pass during his relief stint.
