Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has four quarterbacks. He just doesn't know which one of them will Sunday at New England.

Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell are both recovering from concussions and have not yet been cleared to practice. The Browns signed Caleb Hanie on Tuesday and brought in Alex Tanney last week after Campbell sustained a head injury. Chudzkinsi said Hanie and Tanney will split time with the first-team offense in practice on Wednesday.

Chudzinski said he would like to pick a starter as soon as possible but the decision could go right up until game time on Sunday.

Chudzinski called his quarterback situation "very fluid" and "unique" and he's keeping all options open as the week progresses.

Weeden was injured in Sunday's loss to Jacksonvillle. He passed for a career-high 370 yards and threw three TD passes.
