CLEVELAND -- We have finally made it.
It is the fourth preseason game for the Browns tonight in Chicago against the Bears. Only a few of the starters will play tonight. The others, including quarterback Brandon Weeden will rest and get ready for the regular season opener Sunday, September 8 against Miami.
So with Weeden getting the night off, back-up quarterback Jason Campbell was supposed to get the start. However, just after 6:30 p.m. it was announced Campbell will also be out because he has the flu. Third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer will play start.
One of his targets against the Bears will be receiver Josh Gordon. Head Coach Rob Chudzinski wanted Gordon to play tonight, because he will miss the first two games of the regular season due to his suspension for violating the NFL's drug policy.
Another receiver to keep an eye on tonight is David Nelson. Nelson has missed most of camp with a bone bruise, on the same knee he had surgery on last year. The Browns signed Nelson during the off-season.
This is an important game for many players, because for some, it could be their last. The Browns must make final cuts by the 6pm deadline on Saturday. The Browns have 75 players in camp and must get down to the final roster of 53 players.
Tonight's game can be seen on WKYC Channel 3. Join us at 7 p.m. for a Browns 2012 review. Then at 7:30 p.m. it's the Pregame Huddle. Kickoff follows at 8 p.m.
