Through all of the chaos last night on possibly the best Monday Night Football game this season, the bad news for the Browns went from bad to worse. Starting quarterback Josh McCown has a broken collarbone, and the injury will be keeping him from seeing the field for the rest of the season.
Pettine: McCown out for the season with fractured collar bone.— Andrew Gribble (@Andrew_Gribble) December 1, 2015
An unfortunate end to a player that put it all on the line for this franchise. Ravens defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan was the one to cause the injury. McCown would gut it out for a few more plays before trying to run off in distress only to collapse on the turf with what looked like a shoulder injury.
A month ago the man threw for 457 yards & 2 touchdowns against the Ravens. Over this season, McCown averaged over 90 on his QBR, and dipped below 80 only twice in the season.
Maybe this means the "heralded" Money Manziel will finally be seeing the field? As of now they had Austin Davis as the back-up quarterback. Even going 7-10 1 TD, 0 INT, with a QBR of 125.8. Great stats, but with the fans roaring cheers for Johnny Manziel, maybe the coaching staff will use the player that they drafted with the first round selection.
