QB Brady Quinn out for the year with a broken finger

That according to ESPN-

Brady Quinn finally got his chance, but it’s not going to end the way he envisioned.

After only three starts, the Cleveland Browns quarterback will be shut down for the season with a broken index finger, sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen on Tuesday.

Sources told ESPN that the team has not determined whether surgery will be necessary, but Quinn must stop all football activity for at least six weeks, ending his season.

Quinn and the Browns made the decision after the quarterback had been examined by noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., earlier Tuesday. According to, the exam found that the break had gotten worse and was threatening tendons in the finger as well.

Derek Anderson, who lost his job to Quinn in Week 10, will return to the starting spot when the Browns host the Colts on Sunday.

The Browns, who are 4-7, won’t be going anywhere this post-season. The book is still out on Quinn as to whether he will be another bust at QB. His stats so far are far from impressive.
