Browns QB Jake Delhomme could have a high ankle sprain, The Canton Repository reported Monday, with the paper suggesting QB Seneca Wallace could get another start on Sunday at Baltimore. The Repository suggested that Delhomme wearing a walking boot on his injured right ankle in the past week signals a high ankle sprain.
Of Delhomme, head coach Eric Mangini said Monday, "He's getting better, but in terms of his status, I'll have better information on Wednesday."
Wallace completed 16-of-31 passes for 229 yards with one TD and one interception in the 16-14 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
The way we see it
Delhomme played well in the preseason and was getting into a good rhythm in the opener at Tampa Bay before throwing an interception late in the first half. Until he's healthy, Wallace will get the call at quarterback. If Wallace is to make another start on Sunday, completing more passes to his wide receivers will likely be a must against a tough Baltimore defense. Wallace connected on 3-of-5 passes to Joshua Cribbs Sunday, which included a 65-yard TD, but he completed just one pass apiece to Brian Robiskie, Chansi Stuckey and Mohamed Massaquoi out of 12 total attempts.
