It has been eight months since we have seen live Cleveland Browns football. On Thursday, that all changes as the 2015 season officially begins for the Browns. The Redskins are coming to town tonight to take on the Browns in their first preseason game. The Browns are coming off a 7-9 year, losing their final five games in the 2014 season. Brian Hoyer led the team to a 7-4 record but fell off. The season ending injury by center Alex Mack affected the team more than most anticipated. Hoyer is now gone and playing for the Houston Texans. Heading into the first preseason game tonight, a new face will start at quarterback for the Browns, Josh McCown. McCown had a great second half of the season with the Chicago Bears in the 2013 season, which led to him signing a deal with the Tampa Buccaneers and served as their starter. McCown went 1-10 last season for the Bucs. Head Coach Mike Pettine said McCown will start in the game against Washington.
THURSDAY: Some clouds and very pretty not a lot of anything. HIGH: 80
THURSDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy a warm and humid night LOW: 70
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny with more humidity. And the slim chance of showers and storms mainly later in evening. HIGH: 85
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center will pay a 93-year-old former patient $7,000 for apparently throwing away rings that were removed by staff members before a surgery last year. The Ohio Court of Claims signed off on a settlement last week between Catherine Goodyear of Reynoldsburg and the Columbus hospital. Goodyear claimed that hospital staff removed her diamond engagement ring, gold wedding band and a pearl and diamond ring before her October 2014 surgery and placed them in a biohazard bag. The rings were gone when she got back to her room, and she assumed they had been thrown away. The hospital agreed to compensate her $7,025 but did not admit liability.
