The Facts: HC Romeo Crennel said during his weekly Monday press conference that Dorsey suffered a rib injury and a slight concussion in the 14-0 loss to the Bengals. The potential loss of Dorsey would mean the Browns, who have already lost Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson to season-ending injuries, would be relegated to Bruce Gradkowski, who was signed by the team on Dec. 2.
Diehards Line:Crennel indicated Dorsey’s progress will be tracked during the week as the Browns determine his status. If Dorsey is out, Richard Bartel would be signed from the practice squad to serve as No. 2 quarterback. Another option for the Browns is to use receiver and return specialist Josh Cribbs more at quarterback. “We might have to depend on Josh a little bit more,” said Crennel. ... Just a though (if it hasn't already occurred to you): Avoid your Browns if at all possible.
