Jason Campbell injury: Browns QB carted to locker room

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The Browns lost another starting quarterback on Sunday.

Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell left Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a head injury, and has been ruled out for the rest of Week 12's matchup against the AFC North rival.

Campbell got beat up on multiple occasions Sunday, beginning early in the second quarter.  He took a shot after a passing attempt and laid on the field for several minutes before being helped off. Campbell had his rib area evaluated on the sideline. He's been dealing with bruised ribs since Nov. 3.

The veteran QB came back into the game after a few plays and finished the first half. But he took another brutal shot in the third quarter and had to leave the game on a cart. Campbell was hit from the blindiside on a Steelers blitz, taking a shot to the head and midsection while losing a fumble.

Brandon Weeden came into the game in Campbell's place and will run the ship from here on out.

It's another unfortunate injury for the Browns, who have had a quarterback carousel this season. Brian Hoyer was named the starter early on, but his season ended with a torn ACL. Browns fans will be none too happy to watch Weeden again, who has already been benched several times this year.
