On the mend

October 30, 2013 - Mike McLain
CLEVELAND -- Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer spoke for the first and last time this season since suffering a season-ending knee injury Oct. 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Hoyer wanted to thank the Browns' organization and the fans for all the support he's received. Hoyer had successful surgery Oct. 18. He hopes to be ready for on-the-field work in six to eight months, which would put him on a timetable for the start of training camp.

Hoyer admits it's been difficult not having a chance to follow up on performances in wins over the Vikings and Bengals in which he started in place of the injured Brandon Weeden.

"That's been the most disappointing thing to ever happen to me," Hoyer said. "For my mindset it's always been to only worry about what you can control. Once my knee was shot it was getting my knee in the best shape I could before I went into surgery. "

Hoyer was injured on a scramble after finding no open receivers. He tried to slide but caught his cleats in the turf while being hit by a defender.

"The more you go back and think what you could have done differently, the more it's going to stay with you," he said. "I felt like there wasn't much different I could have done. Maybe slide a little sooner."
