CLEVELAND

Just when it looked like things are turning around for the Cleveland Browns, the team learned of another bad break.

Quarterback Brady Quinn broke the right index finger in the first half of the Browns win over Buffalo on Monday night, the Associated Press is reporting.

The team initially thought Quinn only bruised his hand after banging it on the helmet of a Bills player. But after he complained of soreness following Wednesday's practice, X-rays were taken and revealed a fracture on the tip of his finger.

Quinn was cleared to play this week by a specialist at the Cleveland Clinic.

''At this point, it's just a little sore,'' Quinn said. ''I practiced yesterday, practicing today. Just doing the best we can to take all the precautions to make sure it's all right.''

Making his second career start and first on the road, Quinn stayed in against Buffalo and finished 14-of-36 for 185 yards.
