McCown throws 'better' in practice, improves chances to play

Browns quarterback Josh McCown's right shoulder has improved enough that he'll likely start Sunday against Arizona.

Although McCown was limited in practice again Friday, the 36-year-old has progressed throughout the week and all signs point to him taking the field to face the Cardinals.

"Threw the ball around today, felt a little better," said McCown, who stopped in the Browns' media room to provide an update to reporters. "We'll see Sunday, but felt better so that's kind of where it's at."

McCown is listed as questionable on the team's injury report, and coach Mike Pettine said a decision could go all the way up until game time.
