No surprise ... it's Hoyer
September 30, 2013 - Mike McLain
CLEVELAND -- Browns coach Rob Chudzinski didn't shock anyone when he named Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback for Thursday's home game against the Buffalo Bills.
The Browns are 2-0 since replacing Brandon Weeden. He has completed 55-of-92 passes for 590 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.
Chudzinski won't admit it, but it appears the move to Hoyer could last through the remainder of the season. Chudzinski revealed that Weeden is healthy and has been cleared to play by team physicians, which is an indication of the lack of faith there appears to be in him in the front office.
Chudzinski was asked if Weeden would be Hoyer's backup Thursday. He replied with his stock answer, saying that he'll consider all factors and make a decision at that time.
Chudzinski didn't officially name Hoyer the permanent starter. Each time he says a decision will be made each week, the smile on his face grows a little wider.
Barring injury, Hoyer appears to be the starter for the long haul of this season. There might be a fan revolt if Chudzinski goes back to Weeden.
