NFL Notes: Draft, Bills, Browns & Redskins

Draft

Todd McShay of ESPN writes that the next year’s crop of quarterback prospects are “as bad a quarterback class as I can remember.”

This is as bad a quarterback class as I can remember,” McShay writes. “Supply never seems to meet demand when it comes to quarterbacks in the draft, but we could be looking at an extreme case this year.

McShay says that he doesn’t see a “franchise savior” available for a number of teams who will likely be looking to add a quarterback next year such as the Browns, Bears and 49ers.

Bills

  • Bills HC Rex Ryan told reporters on Thursday that he’s “not real sure” about RB LeSean McCoy‘s status for Week 8’s game against the Patriots. Ryan added that McCoy is probably in a similar situation as last week but they plan to monitor his progress in the coming days.” (Mike Rodak)

Browns

  • Browns HC Hue Jackson said Thursday that “all signs are pointing in that direction” in regards to QB Josh McCown starting in Week 8. (Mary Kay Cabot)
  • According to Jackson, he’s not ready to rule out rookie QB Cody Kessler, who remains in the concussion protocol. (Scott Petrak)
  • Jackson said there’s a good chance CB Joe Haden (groin) and WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) will play Sunday. (Nate Ulrich)
  • Aaron Wilson reports that the Browns are bringing in Justin Curry for a workout on Friday.

Redskins

  • Redskins HC Jay Gruden told reporters Thursday that TE Jordan Reed and CB Josh Norman have both cleared concussion protocol and can travel with the team to London for Week 8.
  • However, the plan is for Redskins doctors to monitor their symptoms and determine whether or not they’ll play on Sunday.
