Browns coach Rob Chudzinski announced after practice that Campbell would start. Campbell was replaced last week by Brandon Weeden, who sustained a concussion in Cleveland's loss to Jacksonville.

Campbell missed that game with a concussion sustained on Nov. 24 against Pittsburgh. He was cleared to practice for the first time since the injury on Thursday and only had to get permission from an independent neurologist before he can play.

With Campbell and Weeden recovering, the Browns signed free agent Caleb Hanie earlier this week. Last week, they signed Alex Tanney off Dallas' practice squad last week. Hanie started four games for Chicago in 2011. Tanney has never taken a snap in an NFL regular-season game.
