BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns rookie Brandon Weeden is about to get his wish for more playing time.

Cleveland's new starting quarterback looked sharp Tuesday during an indoor practice in preparation for his second preseason game in Green Bay. Weeden and the first-team offense are scheduled to play the entire first half Thursday night against the Packers.

Weeden will look to improve a 3-for-9 passing performance last Friday in Detroit that he called misleading.

Mohammed Massaquoi, who caught Weeden's first pro pass for a 12-yard gain, may play. Massaquoi was hit hard and removed from the game under the NFL's new rule guarding against concussions. The fourth-year receiver said Tuesday he feels fine.
