Josh McCown had pretty much the worst night possible yesterday as the Cleveland Browns faced the Buffalo Bills in their second game of the pre-season.
Okay, it wasn't as bad as Robert Griffin III's night, but the Browns quarterback was intercepted on both of his two opening drives as starting quarterback, before finally leading a drive that stalled out and ended up with just a field goal.
And then the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers flop managed to get himself injured, but McCown has no idea how it happened.

After the game, McCown was taken to the X-ray room in First Energy Stadium to have his right ring finger X-rayed.
That X-ray came back negative, the team later confirmed, but McCown told reporters the finger on his throwing hand was “sore” and he wasn’t sure how he injured it or if he would need further testing.
If McCown's injury keeps him out until after the next pre-season game then maybe he should start getting worried.
Johnny Manziel led a touchdown drive in the fourth quarter Thursday against the Bills backups. Though Manziel has shown improvement this summer, the Browns have remained firm that McCown, who signed with the team last February, is the starting quarterback. But that could change if McCown were to miss the next game and Manziel to star.
The former Texas A&M star looked very good in his performance, seeming more comfortable in the pocket and just more confident in general.
