CLEVELAND -- Charlie Whitehurst grimaced in pain and was nearly doubled over as he leaned on a stanchion outside Clevelands locker room while waiting to undergo X-rays. Justin Verlander Jersey .There was a line of patients.The Browns are losing quarterbacks as quickly as games.Whitehurst and rookie starter Cody Kessler were both injured on Sunday during a 33-13 loss to the New England Patriots, further damaging Clevelands already ravaged quarterback situation.Kessler, making his third start after Robert Griffin III (broken bone in his shoulder) and Josh McCown (broken collarbone) got hurt in the seasons first two weeks, injured his ribs and chest when he was hit hard in the first quarter on a backward pass that skipped out of the end zone and turned into a safety for New England.Whitehurst took over in the second half, but hyperextended his right knee in the final minutes and hobbled to the sideline.The veteran returned to the field to run out the final seconds, but his status for next weeks game at Tennessee remains unclear.I think Ill be fine, he said. I dont know. Well see. I guess there will be some tests, but I think Ill be fine. Ill be ready.The injuries to Kessler and Whitehurst have only magnified problems for first-year Browns coach Hue Jackson, who continues to put on a brave front in the face of the mounting injuries.Jacksons job in rebuilding the Browns was going to be difficult enough. Now hes dealing with a revolving door at the games most important position. Griffin remains sidelined indefinitely, while McCown is holding out hope he could be back soon.Jackson did not provide any specifics on Kesslers injury other than to say nothing was broken.Kessler was drilled by linebacker Donta Hightower as he tried to throw a swing pass to running back Duke Johnson.The third-round draft pick struggled to get up, and when he finally did he walked slowly to the sideline before he was taken to the locker room for tests. Kessler returned to the bench area, but did not go back in the game.I wanted to (play), he said. I tried, but there is a point where you have to be smart. It hurt. I hate leaving guys like that. I hate coming out. It hurt me as a person. It is unfortunate, but that is just the game.For the Browns, its been an epidemic.Theyve had three different starters and have already played five quarterbacks -- wide receiver Terrelle Pryor played 14 snaps at Miami and a few after Kessler and Whitehurst went out -- and only have rookie Kevin Hogan on the practice squad.Its unfortunate, wide receiver Andrew Hawkins said. I really dont have any words for it. Its nothing like Ive been a part of, but its football.Whitehurst dismissed the notion the Browns are snake-bitten.Its the NFL, he said. Guys get hurt. Its the way it goes.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Josh Reddick Jersey . 1 position. The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. Carlos Correa Jersey .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. http://www.baseballastrosproshop.com/carlos-lee-astros-jersey/ .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. NEW YORK -- Bruce Arena knows the job of U.S. soccer coach has changed since his last game a decade ago.Were going to have a lot of pressure on us, he said Wednesday during an interview at the offices of The Associated Press. Were not only expected to qualify for the World Cup, were also expected to be successful in group play and to get into the round of 16 and then hopefully the quarterfinals.Arena took over from Jurgen Klinsmann last week following losses at home to Mexico and at Costa Rica in the opening two games of the final round of World Cup qualifying. The Americans plan a pair of exhibitions in January, and qualifying resumes at home against Honduras on March 24 followed by a match at Panama four days later.Theyve got to be convinced the way were going to play is the right way, and theyve got to be convinced to play for each other. The bottom line is we have to be a better team than weve been in the first two games of this competition. So the concept of team and putting that ahead of everything else is going to be critical, Arena said. I think youll see changes -- I think changes everywhere, not radical, but our mentality will be different, our approach will be different and, hopefully, the results will be different.Arena spoke before heading to Toronto for the second leg of a Major League Soccer conference semifinal against Montreal. He then goes to Europe to speak with German-based American players.Today with professional athletes, maybe a majority of the job is preparing them mentally to play, he said. We know they have the skills and the physical qualities to be successful. Weve just got to deal sometimes with the 6-to-8 inches between the ears to get them headed in the right direction.As Arena watched the 4-0 defeat at Costa Rica on Nov. 15 on television, he was alarmed.I thought they were in a difficult situation, and there would be some thinking about making a change, he recalled.Six days later, he was asked to take the job he held from 1998-2006.Arena led the U.S. to thee 2002 World Cup quarterfinals, then was fired four years later after a first-round elimination. Lance McCullers Jersey. Our fan base is way ahead of what it was when I started in `98 and ended in 2006, he said. And now, with the obvious emergence of social media, its 24 hours a day. So were going to have a lot of pressure on us, and thats all part of it. Thats what we sign up for. So we look forward to the challenge.Because three of the six teams qualify from the hexagonal, as the final round of the North and Central American and Caribbean region is known, the U.S. can rebound quickly.We want from the opening whistle to be a team that gets after it and plays hard for 90 minutes, he said. The first camp will be difficult in March when we have the entire team together. But we have enough experience as coaches to understand the qualities of our players, how to organize and teach them and get them feeling comfortable by the time they kick off against Honduras.Arena has spent the past eight years coaching the LA Galaxy. During his first term with the U.S., he said American players didnt get sufficient respect around the world. That, he said, has improved.The American player is generally a good player. What we lack is the real elite player that some of the other countries have, he said. But we have a good, solid base of players, and Im confident they can play against anyone in the world.Arena is excited about the age of the current player pool. Aside from goalkeepers Tim Howard (37) and Brad Guzan (32), the only regulars older than 30 are defender Geoff Cameron (31), midfielder Jermaine Jones (35) and forward Clint Dempsey (33).Theres a lot of players entering their prime, which in our sport is about 28, 29 years old, Arena said. Were not too old and were not too young. So there shouldnt be any excuses. We have enough experience and enough quality to be successful in qualifying. ' ' '
