Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy miss Thursday practice, fantasy value plummets

Dustin Bradford

The Browns could be down to their third string quarterback for Sunday's game.

Cleveland Browns quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy both missed practice on Thursday, according to Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland.

Weeden and McCoy both have shoulder injuries and haven't practiced this week. If neither Weeden or McCoy can suit up, Thaddeus Lewis would get the start under center for Cleveland with the newly signed Josh Johnson serving as the backup quarterback.

Fantasy Impact: Brandon Weeden had a rocky rookie season, showing flashes but delivering far too many head-scratching plays as well. With other rookies setting the league on fire, Weeden was just an ordinary rookie quarterback.

The Browns have no need to risk Weeden in this game, and it will be interesting to see what decision is made about his future with the team this offseason.
