After a weekend of injuries, the Cleveland Browns' quarterback situation remains unsettled for Sunday's season finale against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.

Johnny Manziel started the Browns' last two games, but was lost to a hamstring injury in last weekend’s loss to the Carolina Panthers. Brian Hoyer relieved Manziel, but hurt his shoulder while being sacked late in the fourth quarter.

Hoyer remained in the game, but according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, head coach Mike Pettine doesn’t know if Hoyer’s shoulder will allow him to go against the Ravens.

“I don’t know if Brian can get to 100 percent,” Pettine said. “Connor Shaw will take all the reps (Tuesday).”

Shaw, an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina, has been on Cleveland’s practice squad since he was among the team’s final preseason cuts.

He played in two preseason games for the Browns, going 8-of-9 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown and rushing for 29 yards on eight attempts.

The Browns (7-8) also signed free-agent quarterback Tyler Thigpen on Tuesday. He was cut in the middle of the preseason after going 3-for-12 for 38 yards and an interception in Cleveland’s preseason opener.

Thigpen last played in the NFL for the Buffalo Bills in 2012 and has 12 starts over the course of six NFL seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins and the Bills.
