Browns’ Hoyer to make third straight start

Updated: September 30, 2013

Berea, OH (Sports Network) – Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski confirmed
Monday that quarterback Brian Hoyer will make his third straight start
Thursday when Cleveland hosts the Buffalo Bills.

Hoyer has won each of his two starts since replacing Brandon Weeden, who
suffered a sprained thumb in a Week 2 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Chudzinski, though, did not commit to Hoyer as the starter following Week 5.

“I think it’s week-to-week,” Chudzinski said of the team’s starting
quarterback situation. “Where we’re at, I’m comfortable with.”

Weeden resumed throwing last week and Chudzinski stated that he’s been cleared
to play.

The homegrown Hoyer was 25-of-38 for 269 yards with two touchdowns and no
interceptions in the Browns’ 17-6 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
In Week 3, Hoyer’s go-ahead 7-yard TD pass to Jordan Cameron with 51 seconds
left helped Cleveland rally and stun the Minnesota Vikings, 31-27.
