Quinn Done for the Year

Tuesday evening, FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer reported that Browns QB Brady Quinn is on the shelf. Derek Anderson will be the team's new starter.

If the 2008 campaign hasn't gone badly enough for the Cleveland Browns, FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer broke the news this evening that Browns QB Brady Quinn will miss the remainder of the season due to a broken right index finger.

Quinn, who injured his finger playing against the Buffalo Bills two weeks ago, attempted to play through the injury last Sunday night against the Houston Texans. Quinn was lifted in the second half of the game in favor of backup Derek Anderson, but was slated to return as starter against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend.

Now, Derek Anderson, a quarterback who statistics and popularity have both plummeted in 2008, gets a chance to rebuild his value against some of the toughest teams in the NFL. The Browns play the Colts, Titans, Eagles, and Steelers in the coming weeks.

According to Glazer, Quinn and the Browns agreed to the decision earlier today, as it appeared that the quarterback's injury had been getting worse due to his activity.
