Brandon Weeden | QB | Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden completed 13 of 17 passes for 107 yards in the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 7, starting in place of QB Tony Romo (back).
Huddle Up: If you're spending that early pick on Dez Bryant, this should make you feel a little more comfortable about the Cowboys' passing game just in case Romo's back isn't ready to go for the start of the season. A little.

The Dallas Cowboys have signed free-agent QB Brandon Weeden (Browns) to a two-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: With Ken Orten undecided about his playing this year and Tony Romo coming off surgery, Weeden may end up much more than a #3 quarterback.

In light of all of the changes to the Cleveland Browns in a short amount of time, QB Brandon Weeden has requested the team seek a trade so he can leave Cleveland. The NFL Network's Mike Silver reported two sources close to the Browns' 2012 first-round draft choice said Weeden would like a fresh start with a different team in 2014.
Huddle Up: Weeden would essentially get a fresh start with the Browns, who will be fielding essentially an entirely new regime this season. At his age he's not really a developmental option, and if he's not Cleveland's quarterback of the future his best shot would be to catch on as a short-term fix elsewhere.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden (concussion) is still not cleared to practice after suffering a concussion in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Meanwhile, fellow QB Jason Campbell (concussion) did get clearance Thursday, giving a strong indication as to who the Browns hope to start Sunday against the Patriots.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden (concussion) completed 24 of his 40 pass attempts for 370 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. A team spokesman said Sunday, Dec. 1, that Weeden was diagnosed with a concussion following the game after reporting symptoms.
Huddle Up: Hopefully this doesn't mean he misses time, because the Browns are down to their ball boy as emergency quarterback. This could be a problem for Josh Gordon.

Cleveland Browns QB Jason Campbell (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, Nov. 27, and is unlikely to play in Week 13. QB Brandon Weeden is likely to start.
Huddle Up: The Browns have tried to replace Weeden twice, losing both Brian Hoyer and Campbell to injuries. Fortunately, Weeden does enough that fantasy owners of Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron shouldn't need to worry about the QB situation.

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said QB Brandon Weeden may get the start in the team's Week 13 game, even though QB Jason Campbell (concussion) has not been ruled out yet.
Huddle Up: This is probably a good thing for Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, though the latter didn't really get much action with Weeden at the helm last week.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden said he has not been told if he will start in the team's Week 8 game.
Huddle Up: You're not starting him anyway, but this could affect the other skill players. Jason Campbell isn't exactly good.

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said he is sticking with QB Brandon Weeden as the team's starting quarterback in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Who else is going to start? Jason Campbell? Weeden might not be a great quarterback, but he gives value to Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, though the latter has had a down couple of weeks.

Updating a previous item, Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer was diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, and he'll miss the rest of the season. QB Brandon Weeden is expected to become the starting quarterback as a result.
Huddle Up: Tough break for Hoyer, who had sparked the team to a pair of wins and was feeding both Josh Cameron and Josh Gordon. Weeden wasn't bad against the Bills, and going forward the fantasy fates of Cameron and Gordon are in his hands.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden completed 13-of-24 passes for 197 yards and a TD Thursday, Oct. 3 in a 37-24 win over the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Weeden was called into action early when starter Brian Hoyer departed with a knee injury on the Browns' second drive of the game and was on target with some timely deep throws in the second half after a sluggish start. His TD came on a 37- yard strike to WR Josh Gordon and, more importantly, he avoided any turnovers. Weeden started the first 2 games of the season and may be in line for more depending on the severity of Hoyer's injury.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden (thumb) worked with gloves on both hands during practice open to the media Tuesday, Oct. 1. How he looks in practice this week will determine whether he is the backup to QB Brian Hoyer or the third stringer for the team's Week 5 game Thursday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Weeden's banged-up thumb opened the door for Brian Hoyer, and it appears the former first-round pick is now shut outside with Hoyer having thrown for 590 yards and 5 TDs in leading the Browns to a pair of wins.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden (thumb) has a good chance to practice this week. The hand specialist told Weeden his sprained thumb is healing nicely.
Huddle Up: This is interesting given Brian Hoyer's big performance on Sunday. Perhaps you should save your waiver wire add for someone else.

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said he will wait on naming a starting QB for the team's Week 4 game. Chudzinski wants to get updates on QB Brandon Weeden's (thumb) health, watch game film, and coach his players before making a decision.
Huddle Up: This is an example of great restraint on the part of Chudzinski, who presumably doesn't want to completely obliterate Weeden's confidence. But Brian Hoyer has to be the guy after yesterday's performance, right?

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer made his first start for his new team, and just the second of his career, in the Week 3 win against the Minnesota Vikings. Hoyer completed 30 of his 54 passes for 321 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. Hoyer did an admirable job filling in for the injured QB Brandon Weeden (thumb).
Huddle Up: Hoyer had a rather hot/cold day, but ultimately shined as the Browns won the most improbable victory on the road against the Vikings. He looked light years better than Brandon Weeden, though it helps that Hoyer had Josh Gordon.
