As an NFL quarterback, Kellen Clemens is accustomed to criticism.

The St. Louis Rams backup quarterback says critical comments from Bernie Kosar are no big deal.

Coach Jeff Fisher was even more determined to put the issue to rest, confirming after practice Monday night that the Browns analyst had telephoned to apologize but declining to say anything more.

The Browns condemned the comments from Kosar, a former NFL quarterback who was brutal in his assessment of Clemens, the Rams' wide receivers and receivers coach Ray Sherman during Thursday night's preseason opener in Cleveland, but said Kosar would stay on the job.
