McCown out for season with fractured collarbone


Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown is out for the season after suffering a fractured collarbone in Monday's dramatic loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

McCown exited the contest in the fourth quarter and was replaced by deputy Austin Davis. Head coach Mike Pettine confirmed McCown will not play again in 2015 on Tuesday.

The Browns fell to 2-9 on the season as Brent Urban blocked Cleveland kicker Travis Coons' attempt at a game-winning field goal and Will Hill returned the ball 64-yards for a touchdown to give the Ravens a 33-27 victory.

Pettine is now left with a decision to make over who will replace McCown.

Johnny Manziel - selected by the Browns in the first round of the 2014 draft -  was named their starting quarterback two weeks ago before being demoted to third string after a video of him partying surfaced.

Manziel, who was listed as active for the game with the Ravens, reportedly lied and told the Browns the video was old.

Pettine refused to name his starter for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, saying: "I don't want to head down this slope. I'm going to reserve talk for the quarterback stuff until [Wednesday]."

Davis played well in relief of McCown, completing seven of 10 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.
