Haslam's Browns make another change at quarterback

The Cleveland Browns are making another quarterback change.

Coach Rob Chudzinski announced Wednesday that veteran Jason Campbell will start Sunday's game against the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs.

Campbell, 31, has 71 starts (31-40) over eight-plus NFL seasons, including one with the Chicago Bears in 2012. He was passed over for the Browns' job once this season after Brandon Weeden suffered a thumb injury in Week 2. Brian Hoyer got the nod instead and led the Browns to wins in his three starts but suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 5.

Weeden, a first-round pick last year, started the past two weeks — both losses, dropping him to 0-4 as the starter this season. He did help Cleveland beat the Buffalo Bills after Hoyer was injured.

Campbell, a first-round pick of the Washington Redskins in 2005 who's now with his fourth club, will become the 20th quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999, the year they rejoined the league as an expansion team.
