Daily Dawg Tags: Season quickly turning ugly for Browns


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Tuesday, Oct. 11.

After a brief one-game homestand, the Cleveland Browns will hit the road again this week to take on the Tennessee Titans.

It will be Cleveland’s fourth road game of the young season, part of a stretch that will see the Browns play five of their first seven games away from FirstEnergy Stadium.

Just who will be at quarterback when the Browns take on the Titans is still a work in progress.

“Cody (Kessler) obviously will be day-to-day. As I said yesterday, there is nothing broken. There is a good chance that he will have an opportunity to be out there this week,” head coach Hue Jackson said on Monday. “Josh McCown will have an opportunity to practice this week. We will know more about where he is as we go through the week, but he definitely will have a chance to go out there and practice.

“Charlie (Whitehurst), we will kind of see where he is with the knee. I’m sure that will be day to day, as well. I think we will have three guys standing out there. We will be able to pick somebody out of the group, but we will keep working at it from there.”

Just another day in paradise for the Browns.

While we wait to see who draws the short straw at the quarterback position, let’s catch up with the latest news about the Browns and from around the NFL in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
