White Ultra Boost . -- With Tony Allen back, the Memphis Grizzlies were able to turn up their defence pressure and hold off the Los Angeles Clippers down the stretch.CLEVELAND -- Jason Campbell didnt think his ribs were broken. He made another correct read. The Browns, who have been shuttling quarterbacks on and off the field all season, finally got some good news on that front: Campbells ribs are only bruised. Campbell has energized the Browns and pushed them back into the playoff conversation. He may practice this week after his injury in Sundays 24-18 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Coach Rob Chudzinski said X-rays were negative and Campbell should be able to play Nov. 17 at Cincinnati. "Im very happy that hes OK, obviously," Chudzinski said Monday during a conference call. "He played really well." Campbell gritted it out and played through pain, matching a career-high with three touchdown passes as the Browns (4-5) ended an 11-game losing streak against the Super Bowl champions. The nine-year veteran was injured in the first quarter when he was sacked and had 340-pound nose tackle Haloti Ngata land on him. Campbell was briefly replaced by Brandon Weeden, who lost his starting job and jogged onto the field to some boos and groans from Browns fans. Campbell returned after missing just four plays and led the Browns to a key division win. He completed 23 of 35 passes for 262 yards, did not throw an interception for the second straight week and hit wide receiver Davone Bess on two crucial fourth-down plays -- one for a TD, the other in the closing minutes as Cleveland used up time. "You saw him from a leadership standpoint," Chudzinski said. "The calmness out there, the ability in that final drive to make plays when that was crunch time and in a critical part in the game and just his presence with our younger guys. What hes doing is really giving us a life." Maybe Campbell is the long-term answer for the Browns at quarterback.

But while some fans seem surprised by his performances in a loss to Kansas City and win over Baltimore, Chudzinski had faith Campbell, the 20th starting quarterback for the Browns since 1999, would deliver. "Jason has played a lot more than any of our guys," Chudzinski said. "You see it during the week, him knowing what to expect in different situations and the questions he asks. Hes been through it and he knows it and when he gets out on the field, hes been there before. Thats calmness. Thats a sense of confidence that our guys have, and I have in him." The Browns, who jumped the Ravens into second place in the AFC North, have a bye this week, giving Campbell time to heal. Chudzinski knew Campbell was hurting, but could tell he was willing to do whatever it took to get the Browns their first win over the Ravens since 2007. "Just looking at him, there was no way he was going to come out of that game and miss out for his teammates," Chudzinski said. Also, Chudzinski said wide receiver Greg Little sprained his right shoulder. Little had seven catches for 122 yards and was twice penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. Little was initially flagged for throwing Ravens safety James Ihedigbos helmet after the two tangled in a pileup. A photo pulled off the TV broadcast shows Ihedigbos hands around Littles neck area. Little popped to his feet and flung the helmet, drawing the 15-yard penalty. Chudzinski hasnt spoken to Little about the confrontation, but said his players need to know when to walk away. "Thats part of the game and part of being smart and part of the control that Im talking about," he said. NOTES: Chudzinski said LB Quentin Groves (ankle) and TE MarQueis Gray (hamstring) wont practice Tuesday. LB Darius Eubanks has been cleared after being evaluated for a head injury and will practice along with LB Eric Martin (knee). Both were injured on special teams. ...
