Quinn will have surgery on finger

Published 2:47 am Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn will undergo surgery on his right index finger, a procedure that will require up to 10 weeks of recovery time.

Quinn, who has been weighing his options for the past week, will have the operation in Alabama on Wednesday.

He broke the tip of his finger and sustained tendon damage on his throwing hand in a Nov. 17 game against Buffalo. He played the next week against Houston and made his injury worse. Doctors will insert a pin into Quinn’s finger to stabilize the bone and tendon.

Quinn started three games for the Browns, who also lost quarterback Derek Anderson to a season-ending knee injury.
