Whitehurst comes to town to serve as Kessler’s backup, but with how fast the Browns are going through quarterbacks in 2016, he may see some playing time sooner than later.
He has only started nine games in his career since wholesale jerseys china being drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2006, and has 10 career touchdown passes.
Whitehurst is nothing more than an emergency backup at this point, but one has to wonder if he will appear in a game this season. With Robert Griffin III likely out until December at the earliest, and Josh cheap nfl jerseys McCown likely done for at least two weeks, Whitehurst is the next man up.
The Browns likely went after him because he was in the NFL last year, appearing in four games with the Indianapolis Colts. There were other free agents available, but Whitehurst is a veteran who has learned the game as a backup since joining the NFL, hence how he received the “Clipboard Jesus” nickname.
It is nice the Browns were able to find a veteran quarterback to come to town in case Kessler gets hurt, but his presence on the field at any point in 2016 means something has gone terribly wrong. This rebuilding team needs stability on offense, so a fourth quarterback getting any wholesale jerseys playing time would mean any dreams of player development have been ruined. Having someone on the field who has the word “clipboard” in his nickname is a bad sign, even if “Jesus” is the second part of the nickname.

The fact the Browns are already signing a free agent quarterback after Week 2 is just terrible, but this season was expected to be a difficult one before it cheap jerseys china even began. Fans just didn’t realize how difficult it would be.
The Cleveland Browns are turning to quarterback Cody Kessler as the starter on Sunday. Can he succeed wholesale jerseys where other rookie quarterbacks have failed?
Since cheap jerseys china joining the NFL in 1950, the Cleveland Browns have drafted 47 quarterbacks.
Some, like Milt Plum, Brian Sipe and Bernie Kosar, have gone on to success. Many others, like Bob Ptacek, Rick Norton, Paul McDonald and Eric Zeier, have not.
On Sunday against the Miami Dolphins rookie Cody Kessler adds his name to the list as injuries to Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown have put the third-round pick on the field cheap nfl jerseys sooner than expected.
This is the 15th consecutive season that the Browns have started multiple quarterbacks and the eighth time they have started at least three quarterbacks in a single season.
Kessler is also the ninth quarterback that the Browns have drafted since 1999 who will start a game for the team. None of the previous eight won their debut, so if Kessler can pull out a win against the Dolphins it will truly be one for the records books.
“For me I have not looked at it as a dream come true,” Kessler said earlier this week. “For me I look at it as I want it to be positive. I want to go out and play my best and do everything I can possible to help this wholesale jerseys china team get a win. Obviously I have worked, like I said, very hard to get here, but you have to perform now. That is what keeps you in this league.”
As we get ready for what may come on Sunday, let’s take cheap jerseys from china a look back at how the debuts of the Browns rookie quarterbacks since 1999.

Parkey made the Pro Bowl in 2014 after converting 32-of-36 field goals, with a long of 54, and all of his extra points. He only appeared in three games with the Eagles last season before landing on injured reserve after tearing three muscles in his groin prior to a game.
Murray has made 1-of-2 field goals and 3-of-4 extra-point kicks this season. He missed a 52-yard field goal and had a low extra-point kick blocked Sunday in a 25-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
He is also not the only new addition to the injury report as cornerback Joe Haden is also listened as questionable with a groin cheap jerseys from china injury.
While Haden may still give it a go against the Dolphins, the Browns will be without quarterback Josh McCown (shoulder/clavicle), wide receiver Corey Colema (hand), defensive wholesale jerseys lineman Carl Nassib (hand), safety Ibraheim Campbell (hamstring) and center Cameron Erving (bruised lung).
For the Dolphins, running back Arian Foster (groin) and center Mike Pouncey (hip) are out. Listed as questionable are defensive back Xavien Howard (knee), linebacker Jelani Jenkins (knee), defensive lineman Jason Jones (ankle), linebacker Koa Misi (shoulder) and wide receiver DeVante Parker (hamstring).
Despite the injury list pushing the mantra of “next man up” into overdrive, head coach Hue Jackson is working to keep a positive attitude.

“These guys are resilient. I haven’t sensed one guy that has fallen off the boat,” Jackson said. “We know we have a big game this week. I give a lot of that wholesale jerseys china credit to our veteran players. Those guys have done a great job in the locker room. Our coaches and our organization, we have done a good job of making sure that our guys understand that week is another opportunity.
“That is what this is all about. It is still so early in the season. We are just heading into Week 3. Like I said, we are just starting out. We have cheap nfl jerseys a long way to go.”
