The Cleveland Browns started the season with a quarterback plan: Josh McCown is the starter, Johnny Manziel is his backup.

They're going back to it.

McCown was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol Wednesday to practice and will start against Oakland, moving back into the lineup ahead of Manziel, who threw two touchdown passes and led the Browns to their first win Sunday.

Browns coach Mike Pettine said he considered several factors into account, but that his final decision was based on one thing.

"For us, it's very bottom line," Pettine said before practice. "You weigh everything. You look at the game plan. You look at where we are, and it's who gives us the best opportunity to win."

Chancellor returns

Kam Chancellor ended his holdout and reported to the Seahawks after missing training camp and the first two weeks of the regular season.

Chancellor arrived at the team facility Wednesday morning. It was his first appearance since June's minicamp and ended a holdout that lasted nearly eight weeks. The Seahawks are 0-2 after losses to St. Louis and Green Bay.

Chancellor has potentially lost more than $2 million with a holdout that appears to have not resulted in a new contract. It is not clear how much he will be fined.

Weeden's their guy

Brandon Weeden is the starter for Dallas with Tony Romo sidelined by a broken collarbone, and coach Jason Garrett made sure to remind the fourth-year player of that after the Cowboys traded for help at quarterback.

Garrett essentially didn't want Weeden to view the addition of Matt Cassel, coming over from Buffalo, as a threat.

"He was very upfront and said, 'This is your deal. Take it and run with it. We are behind you 1,000 percent,"' Weeden said of the phone conversation with his coach the day of the trade.

"It was comforting coming from him. He didn't have to call me. But that's the way I was going to approach it."


•Saints quarterback Drew Brees said he is confident he will be able to play on Sunday against the Panthers despite a bruised rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder.

•Browns suspended offensive line coach Andy Moeller will not be charged for an alleged assault after a woman said he tried to strangle her. City prosecutor Jim Walters said he could not find proof "beyond a reasonable doubt" that Moeller had assaulted the woman, who identified herself on a 9-1-1 call as his fiancée and said he had been violent before. The team said Moeller's suspension "remains indefinite."

•Eagles running back DeMarco Murray left practice because of a hamstring injury.

•Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis sat out practice because of a groin injury, and his status for Sunday's game against Philadelphia is uncertain.
