The injury looked bad, but it could have been worse. Browns coach Hue Jackson said after the game that X-rays revealed that Kessler did not break anything. Further tests could always change that diagnosis, but Cody Kessler is day-to-day for now. Jackson said that Kessler tried to throw on the sideline after the injury, but he was unable to do so.
"It'll be fine," Kessler said about his injury after the game. "Just get treatment all week and try to get back as fast as I can."
The revolving door at quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts will likely take another turn this week.
Matt Hasselbeck might not play against the Tennessee Titans because of a right shoulder injury suffered in the second quarter of Sunday's game against Miami, and things got even worse Monday, when the team placed quarterback Charlie Whitehurst on season-ending injured reserve.
Against the Titans, the Colts could end up starting their fourth quarterback of the season, Stephen Morris, whom they signed off Philadelphia's practice squad last week.
Whitehurst injured his hamstring late in Sunday's victory over the Miami Dolphins. He appeared in four games for the Colts this season and completed 16 of 32 passes for 150 yards and an interception. Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he doesn't have an update on quarterback Andrew Luck, who has missed the past six games with a kidney/abdomen injury. It's a long shot that Luck plays against the Titans, even if he is medically cleared this week, the story said.
