The Browns already had their work cut out for them gearing up the No. 1 passing offense in the NFL Sunday in Tampa.

Now, it will be all that much tougher.

Starting cornerback E.J. Gaines, who was replacing injured starter Terrance Mitchell (broken wrist), came to work Thursday morning complaining of concussion symptoms and was placed into the concussion protocol. He will sit out Sunday's game against the 2-3 Bucs.

"We understand what the challenge is,'' said Jackson. "They have 16 touchdowns passes. That's how they score. They're going to throw the football.''
