Browns' McCown cleared after hurting finger against Bills

CLEVELAND (AP) Browns quarterback Josh McCown will not miss any practice time after injuring his right ring finger in Thursday night's exhibition loss to Buffalo.

McCown underwent X-rays following the game, and was examined Friday by Cleveland's medical staff. Browns coach Mike Pettine said McCown is ''good to go.''

McCown started against the Bills and threw two interceptions on his first two drives. He rebounded by leading the Browns to a field goal late in the first half.

Browns backup QB Johnny Manziel tossed a touchdown pass in the fourth, and the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner is showing more improvement early in his second season. Pettine has not yet named his starter for the Sept. 13 season opener, but said the performances by McCown and Manziel did not change the depth chart.
