Brandon Weeden to be rested against the Chicago Bears

Cleveland Browns coach Rob Chudzinski will rest quarterback Brandon Weeden and a host of additional usual starters for their final warm-up match against the Chicago Bears on Thursday.

Cleveland Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has opted to rest a host of first-team players for their final pre-season match on Thursday.

The Browns take on the Chicago Bears in their last warm-up match before the regular season gets underway, and Chudzinski has decided against risking many of his first-choice players in the match.

The likes of quarterback Brandon Weeden and running back Trent Richardson will not play in the match, while most of the offensive linemen will also miss out.

Chudzinski did, however, confirm that usual starters Josh Gordon, Travis Benjamin, Oniel Cousins and Quentin Groves will feature against the Bears.

The Browns kick off their regular season against the Miami Dolphins on September 8.
