Cleveland coach Pat Shurmur announced what had been an open secret after practice on Monday: Weeden, the No. 22 overall pick, will start Friday night in Detroit.

“Brandon is the starter and we’re moving forward,” Shurmur said. “We’re rolling and I’m not looking back.”

Weeden has taken snaps with Cleveland’s first-team offense throughout training camp. He was pleased by the decision.

“I busted my tail for 10 practices now and put in a lot of work,” Weeden said. “I’ve had my ups and downs. We play Friday. My job is to get the team playing better and win games … starting Friday.”

Don’t expect Weeden to have much of a fantasy impact this season.  Rookie quarterback coming into an offense that hasn’t been very good. With Weeden taking the starting job, Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace will battle for the backup spot.
