Browns | Holcomb the Man Now

The AP reports Cleveland Browns backup QB Kelly Holcomb will start the team's first-round playoff game Sunday in Pittsburgh. He is taking over for injured QB Tim Couch (broken leg). "It's probably at least a four- to six-week healing process," coach Butch Davis said of Couch's injury. "That's a huge blow to the team. His leadership. We certainly wouldn't be in the playoffs if not for the performances and victories he helped lead this team to." Davis added the Browns would sign another quarterback early this week as a backup for Holcomb. The likeliest candidate is QB Kevin Thompson.
