It could be Lewis

December 26, 2012 - Mike McLain
BEREA -- Browns coach Pat Shurmur announced Wednesday that Thad Lewis would get the majority of snaps at quarterback in practice today and that recently-signed Josh Johnson would run the scout team.

Starter Brandon Weeden and backup Colt McCoy both injured their throwing shoulders last week against the Denver Broncos. Shurmur hasn't ruled either out for Sunday's season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Lewis has never played in a regular-season game. He spent most of the 2010 season on the St. Louis Rams' practice squad and last season he spent 13 games on the Browns' practice squad. He dressed for three games last season but didn't play.

The Browns signed Johnson this week to add depth. They also signed defensive back Jordan Mabin. The two replaced safety Usama Young and receiver Mohamed Massaquoi on the roster. Young and Massaquoi both went on injured-reserve this week.

Johnson was drafted in the fifth round of the 2008 draft by Tampa Bay. He spent four seasons with the Bucs. He was in the San Francisco 49ers' camp earlier this season.
