NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday on NFL Network's "Around the League Live" that Weeden will not require surgery on his sprained right thumb and he will be re-evaluated Monday, according to a source informed of Weeden's prognosis. The Akron Beacon Journal had the first report.
"I'm going to leave all the options open," Chudzinski said. "Really, it's a matter of where he is at from a health standpoint and all that plays into it and where we're at and how guys are playing as well."
Translation: Weeden will get his gig back ... if no one else steps up to take it from him.
