Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden sustained a sprained right thumb in Sunday’s 14-6 loss to the Ravens Sunday in Baltimore.

X-rays taken late in the 4th quarter after he walked to the locker room were negative.

“I hit it on a helmet on one of the last plays of the drive,” Weeden said. “I found I couldn’t grip the ball, so I had to come out. It really hurts. The X-rays are negative, so that’s a good thing.”

Head coach Rob Chudzinski said following the game that he wasn’t sure if Weeden would be able to play next week at Minnesota.

Weeden reportedly left M&T Bank Stadium with the thumb wrapped after inadvertently hitting it on a helmet.

Weeden completed 21 of 33 passes for 227 yards in the loss. He was sacked 5 times and hit a total of 12 times by Ravens defenders.

In 2 games, Weeden has been sacked 11 times and hit a total of 28 times in 2 losses to Miami and Baltimore.

If Weeden can’t start against the Vikings, Jason Campbell would become the 19th different quarterback to start for the Browns since 1999.

“It’s one of the toughest situations to be in,” Campbell said. “But from here on out, you have yourself an opportunity. … I’ll prepare this week like I’m going to be the guy. Hopefully, Weed’s going to be OK. If not, I’m ready.”

Campbell completed 1 of 4 passes for 6 yards in 1 series late in the 4th quarter Sunday.
