Cleveland quarterback Brady Quinn's uneven season is over, and so is his chance to impress new Browns president Mike Holmgren.

Quinn was placed on injured reserve yesterday with an unspecified foot injury, the second straight season he has finished on IR. He got hurt while scrambling for 24 yards in the fourth quarter of Cleveland's, 41-34 win over Kansas City on Sunday.

Browns coach Eric Mangini gave no specifics about Quinn's injury, but said his recovery could "take a little while." Mangini said that the team did not yet know whether surgery was necessary and that it was unclear on film how Quinn, who was tripped up as he neared the sideline, was injured.

Derek Anderson will start on Sunday against Oakland.


* Buffalo cornerback Terrence McGee was placed on injured reserve because of a rotator cuff injury he suffered in a loss to New England on Sunday. McGee is scheduled to have surgery today, a person familiar with the injury told the Associated Press.

* Pittsburgh signed wide receiver Joey Galloway as the replacement for Limas Sweed, who was placed on injured reserve Monday with a nonfootball-related illness. Coach Mike Tomlin has not revealed any details of Sweed's condition. Galloway was cut by New England earlier this season.

* New Orleans cut kicker John Carney, a 21-year NFL veteran who signed with the Saints in August for his second stint with team. Carney had been inactive for the last two games, with second-year pro Garrett Hartley taking over as placekicker. The Saints also signed free-agent fullback Kyle Eckel, a former Eagle.

* A former UPS driver has sued Joe Namath, alleging he was attacked by dogs while making a delivery at the quarterback's Florida home. David Gunter say he hasn't been able to work since the 2007 incident in Tequesta, Fla.,

In a separate incident last month, complaints were filed against two of Namath's dogs, and one was ordered to be muzzled and leashed full time.
