Lewis becomes Browns' 18th starting QB
By Jamison Hensley
Thad Lewis will be the Browns' starting quarterback in the regular-season finale at Pittsburgh after Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy were ruled out with shoulder injuries.
Lewis becomes the 18th starting quarterback for the Browns since they returned to the NFL in 1999. Here's the list of Browns' quarterbacks who have made at least one start: Tim Couch, Ty Detmer, Doug Pederson, Spergon Wynn, Kelly Holcomb, Jeff Garcia, Luke McCown, Trent Dilfer, Charlie Frye, Derek Anderson, Brady Quinn, Ken Dorsey, Bruce Gradkowski, Jake Delhomme, Colt McCoy, Seneca Wallace and Weeden.
Weeden nearly became the first Browns quarterback to start all 16 games since Couch did it in 2001. Only one other quarterback has started at least 15 games during that time -- Anderson in 2007.
