If nothing else, at least Brandon Weeden makes the Browns entertainingly horrible. Weeden started the first half against the Packers by completing two of his first 11 passes, mixing in an Cheap Retro Jerseys interception and posting a 1.7 quarterback rating.
Cleveland was noncompetitive in the first half, but it’s not quite the blowout you would expect in Green Bay. But down two scores, was there ever any question about whether Weeden could close the gap? The 30-year-old sophomore quarterback is a statue in the backfield, unable to evade anything and often hastily ejecting the ball from his possession.
This generally panicky state led to the worst interception of the 2013 season last week, and he’s looked particularly lost this Sunday too. The stats are awful, but they don’t quite convey how bad the repeated missed throws and miscommunication with his pass-catchers actually look. The ugly day was best summed up by this sequence:
Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has a grade 2 knee sprain, per Jay Glazy on FOX. Earlier reports suggested that Murray had a grade 1 sprain and that might mean he would only miss one game. A grade 2 sprain could keep Murray out for a few weeks.
According to the NYU pediatrics website, a grade 1 knee sprain indicates stretching and microtearing of the fibers in the knee, while a grade 2 sprain means partial tearing of the ligament. Players such as Fred Jackson and Matt Forte have suffered a grade 2 knee sprain in recent seasons and the expected Cheap Red Sox Jerseys recover time is two to six weeks.
In Murray’s absence, rookie Joseph Randle will be asked to step up in his absence. Randle has 11 carries this season for 17 years. Murray currently has 91 carries for 428 yards and three touchdowns, but he has yet to play a full season in any of his three years since coming into the league.
