The Browns are, once again, in trouble. At least that’s the feeling I get after their comeback win over the Buffalo Bills last night. Yes, they won the game, but they lost their starting quarterback, Brian Hoyer, for the rest of the season. Now, the Browns must turn back to Brandon Weeden.
Hoyer provided a spark for the Browns that resulted in consecutive wins in weeks three and four. Unfortunately, he left Thursday night’s game early with what turned out to be a torn ACL.
Now, the Browns will be continuing the Brandon Weeden era. Weeden, who looked to have lost his shot with the Cleveland Browns, suddenly has new life. He inherits a division-leading 3-2 team that has been pumping out offensive production in his absence.
That being said, Brian Hoyer has removed all excuses from Weeden’s arsenal. Now that the Browns have shown an ability to win football games when their quarterback is willing to take shots down the field, Weeden will have to come out of his shell and take a few...

According to USA Today’s Tom Pelissero the Browns will meet with free agent QB Tyler Thigpen on Friday night. This is great sign if your last name is Weeden. Brian Hoyer (ACL tear) is headed to injured reserve, so Thigpen could push Jason Campbell to be Brandon Weeden’s backup. Thigpen is 29 years old and […]
The feel-good hometown hero story of Brian Hoyer took a crushing turn Thursday night when the quarterback suffered a potentially serious right knee injury in the first quarter of Thursday night's game against Buffalo at FirstEnergy Stadium.
But the never-say-die Browns put on a thrilling performance in Hoyer's absence pulling away with Brandon Weeden at quarterback for a...
Brandon Weeden is even delivering wins now for the Cleveland Browns, and this is making Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and his crew very happy men. Last night’s Thursday Night Football featured injuries to the two starting quarterbacks, a nifty punt return touchdown by Travis Benjamin and the new Browns owner having the time of his life in his press box.

NFL head coaches field a thousand questions during a long season.
It’s understandable if some answers are better or more inspiring than others.
(When the rest of us can maneuver past “Do these jeans make me look fat?” without taking self-inflicted shrapnel we’ll be more critical.)
Rob Chudzinski no doubt has...
Don't look now, but the Cleveland Browns are the first team to three wins in the AFC North following their 37-24 defeat of the Buffalo Bills Thursday night.
Quarterback Brandon Weeden relived injured starter Brian Hoyer in the first quarter and threw for 197 yards and one touchdown to lead the Browns to their first 3-2 start since 2001.
Hoyer, who took over as the Browns starter...
Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer injured his right knee in the first quarter against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.
After being flushed from the pocket, Hoyer gained 11 yards on a run before he got his leg caught underneath while being tackled. He stayed down for several moments before he was helped to a trainer's table and then limped to the locker room under his own power...
Friday, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark was on ESPN First Take and tried to explain to Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless why the team is off to an 0-4 start. In addition, Clark also gave his reasons as to why he thinks the Steelers will still make the playoffs.
"I think we will," said Clark. "We will make the playoffs and the reason I believe we'll make the...
Early in the third quarter Browns fans (and the people that picked up Brian Hoyer looking to start him during their bye weeks) got some bad news. Not only was he not returning in the second half, but it sounds like there is reason to believe he might be out even longer.
Whatever the team was able to do in the locker room was able to give the team reason to...

Although the Browns won 37-24, they lost Hoyer for the rest of the season to a torn ACL. From Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal: #Browns HC Chud said MRI shows QB Brian Hoyer suffered […]
I feel sick for Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer this morning, and not because I started him in my fantasy football league either.
Adam Schefter is reporting that the Browns fear Hoyer has torn his ACL.

Brian Hoyer was a nice story. So was the Browns recent surge. And in one play, all that good-will, all that excitement generated by a local kid, turned starting quarterback, evaporated. And with it, a fascinating discussion point.
Hoyer tore his ACL courteous of a first quarter slide – usually a safe play, but this is the Browns we’re talking about — and he instantly...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer suffered a partially torn ACL during Thursday night’s win over the Bills.
Brian Hoyer has a partial ACL tear only. Will get a second opinion and then get it repaired.

One of the best stories in the league with Patriots ties has come to a sad end.
Brian Hoyer, Tom Brady's former backup, took over the reigns in Cleveland with the team going into "play for 2014" mode. Surprisingly though, the QB performed exceptionally well - leading the 0-2 team to two straight wins. He seemed in a good rhythm in last night...
Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reports that the Browns have eliminated free agent QB Josh Freeman off as a possible option at quarterback now that Brian Hoyer is done for the season.
Ian Rapoport also reported that Cleveland is unlikely to sign Freeman.
Tom Pelissero mentions that Tyler Thigpen could be an option for the Browns.
Pelissero adds that he’s been informed...
