CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden sustained a concussion in the closing minutes of a win over the Steelers.
Weeden appeared to bang his head on teammate Joe Thomas' leg as he fell awkwardly after throwing an incomplete pass in Cleveland's 20-14 victory. Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Weeden is being treated for a concussion but offered no other details.
The 29-year-old Weeden was replaced for the final two series by backup Colt McCoy, who suffered a concussion the last time the heated rivals played. McCoy did not attempt a pass as the Browns attempted to run out the clock.
Weeden finished 17 of 26 for 158 yards with one touchdown and one interception before he was injured. His third pass was tipped and returned 53 yards for a touchdown by Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons.
