BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn broke his right index finger in Monday night’s win over Buffalo but will try to play Sunday against the Houston Texans.
The team initially thought Quinn only bruised his hand after banging it on the helmet of a Bills player, but X-rays taken after practice Wednesday revealed a fracture on the tip of his finger. A specialist at the Cleveland Clinic cleared Quinn to play.
Making his second career start, Quinn stayed in against Buffalo and finished 14-of-36 for 185 yards.
Browns coach Romeo Crennel said Quinn, who recently took over the starting job from Derek Anderson, was able to grip the ball during practice.
The second-year QB will wear a splint when he is not on the field.
