No surgery for Quinn

CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns president Mike Holmgren does not believe injured quarterback Brady Quinn will need foot surgery.

Quinn missed Cleveland’s final two games after hurting his left foot in a Dec. 20 win over Kansas City. The team has not given specifics of Quinn’s injury. On Monday, Holmgren, who took over the club’s football operations last week, provided the most detailed update.

Holmgren said he met with the team’s medical staff and was told Quinn needs time for his injury to heal but would likely be able to avoid surgery.

Quinn opened the season as Cleveland’s starter, was benched after 10 quarters, then got his job back. He went 2-7 in nine starts. He finished 136 of 256 (53 percent) for 1,339 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.
