    Charlie Whitehurst limped by with an elastic sleeve on his left knee.Two more
    Browns quarterbacks are black, blue and beaten up.A day after Kessler and
    Whitehurst were both injured in a 33-13 loss to the New England Patriots,
    Clevelands quarterback situation was as messy and unclear as it has been in many
    weeks.And around here, thats saying something.Kessler is recovering from a
    painful injury to his chest and ribs when he was drilled by linebacker Donta
    Hightower in the first quarter.But after X-rays on Kessler did not reveal any
    breaks, Browns coach Hue Jackson said Monday theres a chance that the
    third-round draft pick, who vaulted up the depth chart after Robert Griffin III
    (shoulder) and Josh McCown (collarbone) were injured in the first two weeks,
    will practice this week and play Sunday at Tennessee.Im sure its a pain
    tolerance issue, every day is going to change, said Jackson, who has endured a
    season full of hardship in his first season with Cleveland.It is today, it is
    tomorrow and practice is Wednesday. We will see where he is then.Whitehurst may
    not be as ready. After becoming the fifth quarterback to play in five games for
    the Browns this season, he hyperextended his knee in the final minutes and is
    listed day to day.For a change, though, its not all bad news for the
    Browns.McCown has been cleared to practice and could be in uniform against the
    Titans. The 37-year-old McCown wants to play after spending the past three weeks
    watching his teammates come up short.Anytime you find yourself in a situation
    like our team is where its gone this way and youre 0-5, I think its all hands on
    deck, and youve got to want to help, he said. You watch tape from yesterday and
    you watch the effort that guys put forth and theyre battling, and you just want
    to be a part of it.Jackson may finally have more than one option this week.Well
    have three guys standing out there (at practice), he quipped. So well be able to
    pick somebody out of the group.At the rate Clevelands QBs are falling, it may be
    hard to find a volunteer.McCown has been out since breaking his left collarbone
    in Week 2 against Baltimore. He showed incredible toughness by playing three
    quarters with the fracture, and less than a month later said its realistic hell
    face the Titans.Yeah, Im going to practice Wednesday, and thats the next step to
    this thing, he said. So well see how it plays out.But Im looking forward to that
    part of it. When youre kind of going through what were going through, just to be
    out there on the practice field and to get back moving around like that, its
    exciting for me. And then well see where it goes. But Im looking forward to
    helping any way I can and getting back out there with the guys.If Kessler and
    McCown are both ready, Jacksons decision gets more complicated.Does he go with
    Kessler, who has shown growth in three starts and could develop into the teams
    long-term answer at QB? Or does he return to McCown, the steady veteran and
    leader who has endeared himself to teammates and may give the Browns their best
    chance to win?Jackson must wait to see how both players practice before he
    decides.McCowns return to practice is a needed positive jolt for the young and
    winless Browns, who until Sundays blowout have been in every game.Its big,
    center John Greco said of the QBs return. I know Josh. Im sure he wanted to play
    that following week.But now that hes got some rest itll be good to have his
    leadership out there with us actually on the field. Hes out there as a vocal
    leader, but his physical presence is huge for this team and if hes out there its
    awesome for us.Game notes C Cam Erving will return to practice after missing
    four games with a bruised lung sustained in the opener. Ervings loss forced the
    Browns to move Greco to center. Im definitely excited to get back out there,

    Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks,
    scoring four goals in his first four games. Its been nearly two months since
    Clayton Kershaw last took the mound for Los Angeles, and whats happened in his
    absence has been pretty encouraging for the Dodgers.Kershaws last appearance
    came in a loss to Pittsburgh on June 26, and Los Angeles trailed San Francisco
    by eight games in the NL West following that game. Since then, the Dodgers are
    27-19 without their ace -- and they now lead the division by a half-game.
    Kershaws herniated disk was the type of injury that could have derailed his
    teams entire season, but the Dodgers have been able to withstand it so far.Were
    right where we need to be in the race coming into September, manager Dave
    Roberts said. I feel fortunate. Am I surprised? No. With the players we have in
    that clubhouse, Im not. Our guys are focused on winning baseball games. Thats
    what we need to do moving forward.Kershaw is 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA. He has 145
    strikeouts and nine walks. ranks him No. 1 in the
    National League in wins above replacement (WAR) this year, even though hes
    thrown only 121 innings. Its hard to overstate what the Dodgers are losing by
    not having him available.And yet Los Angeles never faded from postseason
    contention. In fact, its the Giants who have been thoroughly mediocre for the
    last couple months, squandering their division lead.For the Dodgers, rookie
    shortstop Corey Seager leads an infield that also includes offensive threats
    like Justin Turner and Adrian Gonzalez. The rotation clearly misses Kershaw --
    not to mention Zack Greinke, who left as a free agent -- but Kenta Maeda has
    been solid, and rookie Juilo Urias has made a contribution.If Kershaw does comme
    back soon, it will be to a team thats in much better shape than the one he
    left.ddddddddddddHere are a few other developments from around
    baseballNAPPEDWashingtons Jayson Werth had his streak of 46 games reaching
    base end Friday night. The last time Werth had failed to reach base was June 19,
    but during his streak, his batting average went up only six points from .250 to
    .256.His on-base percentage, on the other hand, increased from .318 to
    .346.DEFENDING THE CROWNCount out the Royals at your peril. Kansas City has won
    eight games in the row and is now only 3 + games behind a wild card. Danny Duffy
    won his 10th straight decision Sunday.Five of Kansas Citys eight wins in its
    streak have come against last-place Minnesota, but the Royals also took three
    straight from a Detroit team that had been playing well.FANTASY FOCUSYulieski
    Gurriel was called up from the minors by the Houston Astros on Sunday and
    singled in his first big league at-bat. He finished 1 for 2 with a walk and a
    groundout, although he left the game with hamstring tightness.The Astros have
    high hopes for Gurriel, and fantasy owners will be pleased with the idea that he
    could play multiple positions.LINE OF THE WEEKKris Bryant went 5 for 5 with two
    homers and five RBI on Thursday to lead the Chicago Cubs over Milwaukee 9-6.
    Bryant is second in the NL in homers and first in runs, and with the Cubs
    running away with the NL Central, he should be a definite factor in the MVP
