CLEVELAND (AP) --- Browns starting quarterback Josh McCown is done for the
season after breaking his collarbone in Monday night's last-second loss to
McCown kept playing despite taking a big hit in the second half, but had to
leave the field after throwing an incompletion in the fourth quarter.
Coach Mike Pettine said McCown will not need surgery, but described his injury
as "the worst-possible scenario."
McCown has played with several injuries during his first season with the
Browns, who signed him to a three-year deal in February. He sustained a
concussion while diving toward the end zone on Cleveland's first drive this
season. The 36-year-old missed two more games with injured ribs.
Pettine is not ready to announce who will replace McCown. Austin Davis came in
for McCown and threw a game-tying touchdown pass. Pettine could also go back to
Johnny Manziel, who was recently benched.
