Texans QB Brandon Weeden is expected to start this weekend's game against the Titans, according to insider Tania Ganguli.  CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms that QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) is not expected to be cleared by Sunday morning.  Weeden joined Houston a little more than a month ago after getting cut by the Cowboys.  We know what Weeden is at this point -- and it's not a fantasy starter.

Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said after Sunday's loss to the Patriots that he'll "evaluate" the QB situation during the Week 6 bye.  Brandon Weeden has completed 70% of his passes over the last 3 weeks, but he's tossed just 1 TD with 2 INTs.  And Dallas has lost all 3 games.  The Cowboys' problem is that QB Matt Cassel isn't much of an upgrade.  This passing game will continue to struggle until QB Tony Romo returns in Week 11 at the earliest.

The Cowboys have signed QB Brandon Weeden to a 2-year deal.  There have been whispers that backup QB Kyle Orton is considering retirement, so Weeden is at least an insurance policy against that.  Dallas would obviously be in trouble if he's forced to play this season, though.  Weeden arrives in the Big D with a 55.9% completion rate, 23 TDs and 26 INTs in 23 career appearances.

The Browns released QB Brandon Weeden on Wednesday.  The move comes just 2 years after Cleveland drafted him in the 1st round, but it still comes as no surprise.  That was 2 front offices and coaching staffs ago.  The latest set of leadership didn't pretend to like the erratic 30-year-old.  We could still see him landing somewhere as a backup, but fantasy owners can go ahead and forget about Weeden.  Meanwhile, QB Brian Hoyer sits atop the Browns' depth chart. They're fully expected to add an early-round rookie to the mix.

Speaking at the 2014 Scouting Combine, new Browns GM Ray Farmer sure didn't sound like he's a fan of QB Brandon Weeden.  “Do I think he can be a winning quarterback in the NFL? Let me say this,” Farmer said, per Scott Petrak of The Chronicle-Telegram. “Once you’re in the National Football League, you’re graded upon your performance and what you were able to achieve at that moment. We have a grade on Brandon. In time, his agent and he will both know where we stand with Brandon and he will be able to release that information.”  It would have been easy for Farmer to say something positive about Weeden without committing to the QB in any way.  Farmer refused to say whether the Browns would keep or dump Weeden, but it sure seems like they want a different starter for 2014.
