BEREA (92.3 The Fan) – Cleveland Browns quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy missed their second consecutive practice Thursday.

Rookie running back Trent Richardson, who is 50 yards shy of the coveted 1,000 for the season, also did not practice.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur refused to rule either of them out for Sunday’s finale against the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

Thaddeus Lewis, who was signed from the practice squad on Monday, would get the start in place of Weeden and McCoy if they aren’t available.

“He’s got a live arm,” Shurmur said about Lewis. “He’s very athletic. He’ll execute our offense the right way and I’m glad he’s going to, if he becomes the starter here, will have an opportunity. He’ll do a good job.”

If Lewis starts, Josh Johnson, who was signed Wednesday, would serve as Lewis’ backup.

Shurmur said Thursday that they considered bringing back Seneca Wallace but opted for Johnson instead.

Montario Hardesty is set to start in place of Richardson and Brandon Jackson, who has been inactive for 13 games this season, would be active and play.

Jackson has yet to carry the ball this season and has 2 catches for 20 yards – both came in the season opener against the Eagles.

Cornerback Sheldon Brown was also idle for a second straight day. He hasn’t officially been ruled out either.

All 4 players were injured during last Sunday’s 34-12 loss to the Denver Broncos.
