Cody Kessler is the latest Browns quarterback to leave a game with injury
Kessler was leveled while attempting a shovel pass and left the game
For the third time this season, the Cleveland Browns' starting quarterback has been injured. Robert Griffin III went on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Josh McCown suffered a shoulder injury as well. And now Cody Kessler has left the Browns' Week 7 game against the division rival Bengals with a possible concussion.

Kessler was injured while attempting a shovel pass after scrambling away from multiple rushers in the backfield. He completed the pass to Gary Barnidge, but took a huge hit and left the game thereafter.
Fellow rookie Kevin Hogan, from Stanford, took Kessler's place under center. He had already seen several snaps early in the game as an option-style quarterback and carried the ball three times for 37 yards. He is the sixth player to take a snap as the quarterback for the Browns this season, after Griffin, McCown, Kessler, Terrelle Pryor and Charlie Whitehurst.
Time to add yet another name to that epic Browns quarterback jersey, folks.
