Browns Will Apparently Make Chiefs Wait On Jake Delhomme's Status

There have been reports circulating that Cleveland Browns QB Jake Delhomme has been spotted in a walking boot. He injured his ankle in last Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We're not sure what the status of Delhomme is for Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs and apparently that's the way head coach Eric Mangini wants it.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that the Browns have "gone silent" on Delhomme's ankle.

All sources who would be in a position to know more about Delhomme's condition have gone silent regarding the ankle, and the silence has been explained to us as an effort to preserve the competitive advantage that comes from forcing this week's opponents, the Chiefs, to spend time preparing both for Delhomme and for Seneca Wallace.

There's no doubt that keeping the Chiefs in the dark as long as they can is a competitive advantage. Delhomme and Wallace are fundamentally two different types of quarterbacks. Delhomme is more of a pure pocket-passer while Wallace adds the rushing dimension to his game.

Looks like the Chiefs will have to prepare for both.
