Browns QB Jake Delhomme wore a walking boot on Tuesday after injuring his ankle in last Sunday's season-opening loss to the Buccaneers.
A league source told Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that Delhomme wore the boot Tuesday, but the club had no update on Delhomme's status for Week Two against the Chiefs.
The source also said that backup QB Seneca Wallace would receive the bulk of the reps with the No. 1 offense in practice on Wednesday. Delhomme suffered the injury throwing one of his two picks. Head coach Eric Mangini said he never considered replacing Delhomme with Wallace last Sunday.
The way we see it
Wallace is a capable backup with 14 career starts to his credit. He brings mobility to the QB position, something Delhomme does not. The Chiefs' defense played well against Chargers QB Philip Rivers, who, like Delhomme, is not known for his mobility, so K.C. would have to prepare for Wallace's ability to run. If Wallace starts and Delhomme can't play, rookie Colt McCoy would be the No. 2 QB.
