Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown, who left last week’s meeting with the St. Louis Rams after sustaining shoulder and rib injuries, could be a game-time decision against the Cardinals this Sunday, coach Mike Pettine told reporters Friday.

McCown is officially listed as questionable, but according to a report from Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, he will play this week.

Having completed 26 of 32 passes for 270 yards, McCown was replaced in Week 7 by backup Johnny Manziel after taking several hits from the Rams’ defense. If McCown is unable to go this week, Manziel would get the call.

McCown, a 13-year veteran, has completed almost 67% of his passes this season for 1,686 yards and eight touchdowns this season, with three interceptions.

Cleveland (2–5) meets Arizona (5–2) at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
