McCown throws 'better' in practice, questionable for Sunday

BEREA, Ohio (AP) Browns starting quarterback Josh McCown says he felt better throwing in practice but remains questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona.

McCown has been limited this week by a sore right shoulder and ribs, injuries sustained last week in a loss at St. Louis.

Coach Mike Pettine says he might not decide on his starter until game time. If McCown can't play, backup Johnny Manziel will make his second start this season.

During the portion of Friday's practice open to the media, McCown threw the ball with more speed and distance than he did Thursday.

Manziel worked with Cleveland's first-team offense this week, and also met with NFL investigators. He faces a fine or suspension from the league if he broke its personal conduct policy during an Oct. 12 argument with his girlfriend.
