There's a "90% chance'' the Browns will start quarterback Brandon Weeden Sunday against the 7-0 Chiefs, but he's "on a short leash,'' a league source told cleveland.com Tuesday.
The source said some in the Browns' organization have grown weary of Weeden's ineffectiveness, and that they won't hesitate to play Jason Campbell if he continues to struggle.
In Kansas City, Weeden will face a relentless defense that's No. 1 in the NFL with 35 sacks -- 10 more than the No. 2 team, Baltimore. They're also first with 64 passes defensed and tied for third with 10 interceptions. They're first with nine fumble recoveries.
Coach Rob Chudzinski said his staff would meet on Monday to decide whether or not to bench Weeden, who dropped to 0-4 with his 31-13 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Weeden may not make it out of the Chiefs game if he's on a short leash. Jason Campbell probably isn't much better of a fantasy option, which is a shame because potential fantasy starters Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron take the biggest hit in value.
