While the season is already over for Brady Quinn, the Browns QB has decided to have surgery on his fractured right index finger. He hurt the finger during the teams win over the Bills on Monday night a few weeks back, and was going to play with it the following week vs the Texans, but after throwing two bad picks was pulled and never saw the field again.
The operation was performed today in Birmingham, Ala., by hand specialist Dr. Thomas Hunt.The procedure, which will likely involve a pin being inserted in Quinn’s finger to stabilize the bone and damaged tendon, will require up to 10 weeks of recovery time. The Browns are in bad shape as is in the QB spot, as they have lost Quinn and now Derek Anderson, who is out for the year after a knee injury Sunday in a loss to the Colts.
The team will start Ken Dorsey on Sunday in Tennessee, and Tuesday signed Bruce Gradkowski, who started 11 games for the Bucs in 06.
