Browns quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy are not practicing again because of shoulder injuries.

Coach Pat Shurmur said both remain sidelined as Cleveland prepares for Sunday's season finale against Pittsburgh. Weeden and McCoy were hurt last week against Denver. Third-stringer Thad Lewis took all the snaps with the Browns' first-team offense in practice on Wednesday, and it's possible he will make his first career start against the Steelers if Weeden or McCoy don't improve.

Shurmur has not yet ruled out either of his QBs. The team signed free agent quarterback Josh Johnson, who would back up Lewis if Weeden and McCoy can't play.

Rookie running back Trent Richardson is also missing practice with a sprained ankle. He and McCoy were both injured in the closing seconds against the Broncos.
