BEREA, Ohio -- The Browns are down to one quarterback -- one healthy, though very shaken quarterback who has become a target for Cleveland fans. With Jason Campbell being treated for a concussion, Brandon Weeden, twice benched this season and a lightning rod for fan anger, will likely start this week against Jacksonville. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Campbell is following the NFLs protocol on head injuries after he was hurt in Sundays 27-11 loss to Pittsburgh. Campbell was knocked to the ground by blitzing Steelers cornerback William Gay, who came unblocked off the edge and delivered a blow to the quarterbacks facemask with his left hand. As he fell, Campbell also banged his head onto the frozen ground. The play was not caught by referee Terry McAulay or anyone in his crew for a penalty. Chudzinski, who plans to submit the play to the league office for review, said he was told by officials during the game that they thought Campbell was struck in the shoulder. "It doesnt seem like they miss that call very much," outside linebacker Paul Kruger said Monday. Campbell has not been ruled out of this weeks game, but Chudzinski said "chances are" Weeden, who began the season as Clevelands starter, will get the nod against the Jaguars. Weeden is the only quarterback on Clevelands roster, but Chudzinski said the Browns (4-7) will likely add a backup in the next few days. Teams typically work out players on Tuesday before signing them. The team will reportedly bring in free agent Caleb Hanie for a tryout. A former backup with Chicago and Denver, the 28-year-old was released by Baltimore before the season. Campbell came to the Browns training facility Monday before he was sent home. Hell undergo further evaluation this week and will have to pass a concussion test before he is cleared to play. Chudzinski said he spoke briefly with Campbell, who was assisted to the sideline and driven to Clevelands locker room after Gays hit. "I think he was OK, felt OK," Chudzinski said. Campbells injury places Weeden back in the crosshairs of some Cleveland fans, who vented their frustration at him during Sundays game. Weeden was booed when he came in for one play in the first half after Campbell aggravated a rib injury and again when Clevelands starter was knocked out of the game. The negative reaction by fans made an already unpleasant atmosphere in FirstEnergy Stadium worse. "Its difficult," Chudzinski said. "I understand the fans, the perspective and where theyre coming from on things. At the end of the day hes a Cleveland Brown and we need him to win and to help us win. I know that thats how the team feels about him." Browns linebacker DQwell Jackson said he has "always been behind Brandon from Day One" and sympathizes with him being singled out as a reason the Browns have dropped from the playoff race. "You could hear the boos around the stadium, but you have to block that out," Jackson said. "That comes with the territory. He plays a tough position. He takes all the credit when you win, and unfortunately he takes all the credit (blame) when you lose. "Im more than confident he can get it done. If hes up or if Jasons up, it doesnt matter to me who is back there. I know both guys are more than capable enough to help us win." Jacksons positive comments were not surprising. After all, hes a team captain, leader and perhaps the most respected player in Clevelands locker room. However, following Sundays game, both cornerback Joe Haden and safety T.J. Ward made remarks that seemed to indicate a possible divide among the Browns. Haden said there was a sense of deflation when Campbell went to the sideline the first time, and Ward bemoaned the teams four turnovers and offensive struggles. "Im tired of losing, thats it," Ward said. Chudzinski was aware of Wards comments and understands that some of his players are disappointed and angry. But with five games left, he cant allow any dissension. "Guys who arent frustrated or like losing, we dont want here anyhow," he said. "I talked to the team about the importance of us sticking together and this is the time when those frustrations come out, when you dont have as much success in a game that you want to have. We have a lot of football left to play this season." Jackson said Ward, in the final year of his contract, probably wishes he had chosen his words more wisely. "Im sure he regrets it," Jackson said. "He was speaking out of frustration. T.J. is a team guy. He wants everyone to do well." Patrick Ewing Jersey .

Hopefully this year we will be better," Brendan Gallagher said after practice. This year, the Canadiens have a little more depth to work with by adding players like Daniel Briere, Dale Weise, Mike Weaver, Douglas Murray and arguably, the biggest addition to this playoff roster, Thomas Vanek, who the Canadiens were able to land at the trade deadline. John Starks Jersey . But sometimes the way you lose takes precedence over the final score. And how the Jets lost the 5-4 game to the New York Islanders on Thursday is what had Coach Claude Noel hot after the game.Nick Compton needs to adopt a more positive approach to his batting going forward if Englands No 3 wants to save his Test career, according to Sky Sports pundit Michael Holding. The Middlesex batsman made just nine runs from 34 balls on day one of the second Test against Sri Lanka at the Emirates Riverside as the home side closed on 310-6.However, after also failing in Englands comprehensive first Test win at Headingley last week when making a three-ball duck, the pressure is now very much on Comptons shoulders going into his second innings in Durham. Holding, however, thinks Compton should be more aggressive the next time he walks to the wicket, with the former West Indies paceman using compatriot Lawrence Rowes past difficulties for his country as an example of how to hit your way into form. Weve picked out Joe Root as our player of the day after his 80 helped England reached 310-6 after the first day of the second Test People have been saying that maybe he needs to change the way he bats, Holding told Sky Sports. There are two viewpoints.I remember years ago when Lawrence Rowe was having struggles in the Caribbean and he was not getting any runs. He went out there against England blazing one afternoon and got something like 47 or 48 in quick time. And then he came back and got a triple century.Greg Chappell went through a similar situation in Australia in the Eighties and they asked Greg, when he did eventually get some runs, if he ever thought about going out and throwing his bat.And he said: No, that is not the way I have ever batted. I just decided to keep on batting the way I know how to bat and eventually the runs will come. Milinda Siriwardana was pleased with his performance after he picked up two wickets on day one of the second Test against England Well Compton may need to start thinking a little more positively about his stroke play, because he goes out there in this defensive mode. And I think he is putting a lot of pressure on himself by being in that defensive mode.He needs to loosen up a bit. Do not go out and throw the bat, but loosen up a bit.Mahela Jayawardena, meanwhile, agrees with his fellow Sky Sports pundit and the one-time Sri Lanka captain believes Compton is placing himself under too much pressure when going out to bat.You felt that he was on a mission after he got out in the first Test match caught behind, he said of the right-hander who has been out for scores of 15, 26, 0, 19, 6, 0 and 9 in his last seven Test innings. England opener Alex Hales told David Lloyd he thinks England had the better day after England posted 310-6 So his focus was on trying to get forward and making sure that he controls that.ddddddddddddAnd you could see his intent of playing forward all the time. Then all of a sudden the short ball came out of nowhere because he was not prepared.You need to be going with the flow, rather than putting yourself under pressure, by batting with a plan.It probably was a planned thing from the Sri Lankans, but he was not ready for that short ball and he took it on. Alex Hales (left) chats to Nick Compton on the opening day of the second Test in Durham So he just needs to clear his mind and bat the way he bats naturally and be more positive.One England player who is not struggling for runs so far this summer is opener Alex Hales, who made an impressive 83 on day one at the Riverside, his second score in the eighties after falling 14 runs short of a century in Leeds last week. He is showing why the selectors showed faith in him. They knew what he could produce and he has shown he could adapt Michael Holding on Alex Hales However, Jayawardena feels the Nottinghamshire batsman must now take the next step up by recording that elusive maiden Test ton in order to make him feel like he belongs at the highest level of the game.He needs to get that hundred, as once you get that, you feel you belong in Test cricket, he said.He has found a way to control his innings and tempo, but once he gets those big runs under his belt, then he can start to control his innings better. The longer he spends time there, he will find a way to control his tempo better.Jayawardena, though, has urged Hales to carry on playing his natural game, despite the Englishman once again getting dismissed playing an attacking shot against a spinner, as he also did at Headingley. Watch a pick of the action from the first day of the second Test between England and Sri Lanka Either way, Holding thinks Hales is demonstrating just why England coach Trevor Bayliss picked him for the tour of South Africa and then kept faith with the opener after his lean time with the bat during the winter.When he didnt do that well in South Africa a lot of people, including myself, were saying he doesnt really look like he is going to make it at Test level. England knew exactly what he could produce - and he is now producing.When he came into the side people spoke about his possibly being a dasher, but he hasnt batted that way in Test cricket as he realises it isnt going to work. He dug in at Leeds when wickets were tumbling around him.And now he is showing why the selectors showed faith in him. They knew what he could produce and so its good to see he can adapt.
