The Browns still haven't determined who will be their starting quarterback in Week Nine vs. the Patriots, as veterans Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace are each recovering from high ankle sprains.

Neither QB will practice on Monday, as rookie Colt McCoy will continue to take the snaps with the first-string offense. Head coach Eric Mangini said the decision on who will start will come later in the week, and it will depend on which player gives Cleveland the best chance to win.

McCoy started the team's last two games, throwing for 355 yards, with one TD and two interceptions, as the Browns lost to the Steelers and defeated the Saints, both on the road.

The way we see it

The bye week came at the right time for the Browns, as the rest hopefully allowed Delhomme and Wallace to recover. Until they practice, however, McCoy still is the likely candidate to start vs. New England.
