Cody Kessler is holding out hope he'll be cleared to start Sunday against the 2-5 Jets, a league source told cleveland.com Monday.
Kessler left Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Bengals with a concussion suffered with 7:27 left in the half when he was struck him in the head on a backhanded flip to Gary Barnidge.
The pass set up Isaiah Crowell's 1-yard touchdown run for a 10-7 Browns lead with 6:20 left in the half, but it proved costly.
Kessler was checked on the sidelines for a concussion and was diagnosed with one after jogging clear across the field to the locker room. Based on his long jog to the locker room, the concussion is not severe, but he's in the concussion protocol and must be cleared by an independent neurologist. As the evening wore on, he felt good and was already looking ahead to the Jets game, the story all said.

Week 7 vs. Cincinnati
The Patriots ripped apart the Bengals last week with their tight ends, but there's obviously no guarantee the same will happen with Gary Barnidge in Week 7. There's a chance for success, however, especially if Terrelle Pryor misses time.
Barnidge has been solid this season, although he's still seeking his first touchdown. We like the Browns tight end as a TE1 play this week in a favorable matchup.
