'I haven't even opened the bag of tricks yet' - Jackson on 0-12 Browns

Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson is ready to unleash everything in the playbook for a first win of the NFL season.

The Browns are 0-12 heading into their bye week. With four opportunities remaining to get a win, they are ready to throw caution to the wind.

"I haven't even opened the bag of tricks yet," Jackson said of the offense, which has averaged fewer than 10 points over the Browns' last four losses.

It is not yet determined whether quarterback Robert Griffin III will be able to play December 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Griffin has been out since suffering a shoulder injury in Cleveland's season-opening loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Jackson said Griffin will be tested this week to see if he is cleared to fully practice.

He added: "I do see improvement across the board, but it is not enough.

"It is not enough to win at this level. We just have to keep working at it. That starts with me and it kind of trickles down everywhere else, but I have to get it fixed.

"There is an answer in there somewhere that is going to give us what we want, and we just have to keep searching for it."
