McCown out for season with broken collarbone

Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown is out for the season, Mike Pettine said during a conference call Tuesday.

The starting QB walked off the field Monday night during the Ravens game after taking a hit in the third quarter.


McCown injured his collar bone after taking a hit following a deep throw attempt to Travis Benjamin with 2:20 to play in the third quarter. He returned for the Browns’ next possession, which began with 9:05 to play in the fourth, and threw two passes -- a short completion to Malcolm Johnson and an incompletion well out of bounds -- before he was relieved by Austin Davis.

The Browns went on to a heartbreaking loss.
