UPDATE: Browns' Jason Campbell cleared for activity, not cleared to practice, sign Caleb Hanie

Nate Ulrich of reports that Cleveland Browns quarterback, Jason Campbell, who suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the Browns' November 24 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, is cleared for activity but not practice.


Darin Gantt of NBCsports reports that the Browns sign former Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos backup, Caleb Hanie, to add depth to the quarterback position.  The Browns had Hanie in for workouts a week ago but chose Tanney instead.

Playing quarterback for the Cleveland Browns this season is as taboo as the Brady kids in Hawaii.  QB Brandon Weeden has struggled this season and suffered a concussion sometime during Sunday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.  QB Brian Hoyer played well for a short stint before he was lost for the season with a knee injury.  Smashed in-between is Campbell who is dealing with his own concussion.

However, there is good news on the horizon as Campbell is cleared to resume activities but not cleared to practice. Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski will wait until later in the week before he decides on who will start this Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

Chud's options are limited.  Weeden is probably out so that leaves Campbell, who is still in the early stages of being cleared to resume practice and unproven Alex Tanney.  Tanney, recently signed from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad, has yet to make his first NFL start, though he can toss a football into a coffee mug from 200 yards away.

There is also the possibility that the Browns could sign a veteran QB from the NFL salvage yard if things turn sour, if they have not already.

Where have you gone Tim Tebow, Cleveland turns its lonely eyes to you.
