NFL: Browns QB out for rest of season

Associated Press
BEREA, Ohio ó Derek Anderson’s season is officially over, yet another slap for the down-on-their-luck Cleveland Browns.
Anderson, who lost his starting job to Brady Quinn several weeks ago, will miss the final four games after tearing a ligament in his left knee on Sunday against Indianapolis.
An MRI taken Monday revealed Anderson tore the medial collateral ligament when he was sacked in the final minutes of Cleveland’s 10-6 loss to the Colts. Anderson, making his first start since Nov. 2 after being benched for Quinn, will not need surgery. He will be placed in a brace and will need four to six weeks to recover.
Quinn, too, is done for the season with a finger injury. He has not yet decided whether to have surgery on his broken right index finger, which he hurt on Nov. 17 at Buffalo.
The injuries to their top two QBs means the Browns (4-8) will start third-stringer Ken Dorsey on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans (11-1). Return specialist Joshua Cribbs, who played quarterback at Kent State, will serve as Dorsey’s backup unless the Browns can sign a veteran quarterback in the next few days.
“Once Derek came back in we were all confident because we know Derek can play and its frustrating now that we have to change again,” guard Eric Steinbach said.
