With McCown’s Status in Doubt: Browns Sign QB Blanchard to Practice Squad

CLEVELAND – With the status of Browns QB Josh McCown very much in doubt for Sunday, the team has moved quickly to pickup a quarterback.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the team has signed QB Matt Blanchard to the club’s practice squad.


Blanchard played his college ball at Wisconsin-Whitewater, and had been a part of a couple of preseasons with the Packers, Bears and Panthers.

If McCown is unavailable, Johnny Manziel would start and Austin Davis, who was inactive last week, would be the backup.

Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events. He has been a part of the Cleveland Indians coverage since the opening of Jacobs/Progressive Field in 1994, and spent two and a half years covering the team for 92.3 The Fan, and covers them daily for Associated Press Radio.
