Brian Hoyer on schedule in return from ACL surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer, who's coming back from October ACL surgery, expects to participate in OTAs. “I’m on track to do some of that stuff, most of it I would think,” Hoyer told CBS Cleveland. “I feel like I’m ready to go.”

Hoyer still must meet with doctors to get medically cleared. The offseason program begins April 7 with weight training and meetings with coaches.

“There’s not going to be any contact that I have to worry about,” Hoyer said. “I’m basically out there throwing now the way I’ll be throwing in a practice, so in my mind I’m ready to go…from my part there’s nothing holding me back.”


Browns considered Matt Schaub, but 'comfortable' with Brian Hoyer


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Browns general manager Ray Farmer admitted the team considered trading for quarterback Matt Schaub before the Raiders acquired him, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. However, Farmer insisted he's "comfortable" with Brian Hoyer entering the season.

Cleveland still is expected to draft a quarterback at Nos. 4 or 26 overall.


Mike Pettine pumped about Brian Hoyer


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Asked an open-ended question about his quarterbacks, new Browns coach Mike Pettine's first words were "Brian Hoyer," reports the Boston Globe.

“We’re looking forward to getting him back to where at least he’ll do some limited work in the spring," Pettine continued, referring to Hoyer's comeback from ACL surgery. "I’ve always admired Brian from afar. He’s proven he can be successful in the NFL, but at the same time, you’re always looking to make the team better and that’s the most important position.”

The Browns still are expected to draft a quarterback at No. 4 overall.


Brian Hoyer plans to win starting job


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was upset to see general manager Mike Lombardi go since he was a big supporter, but Hoyer's already looking forward to the challenge of impressing new coach Mike Pettine and a new offensive coordinator in Kyle Shanahan, reports the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

Hoyer doesn't know if he'll be the starter next season, especially coming off a torn ACL last year, but he's excited to prove himself once offseason workouts begin.

"For me it’s about coming in here, rehabbing, preparing myself as best I can for when we start back up and go from there," he said. "From my time talking to coach Pettine, I'm excited to play for the guy. He's one of those coaches who you look at him and he's a football guy. He's going to bring some intensity, accountability, all of those things. For me, I can't wait for April to start."


Brian Hoyer continues to get in shape


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/13/2014) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer is running, lifting and throwing, says the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram. He's seventeen weeks removed from ACL surgery and is moving beyond the rehab phase. Hoyer remains hopeful to start for the team in 2014. 

Browns could move on from Brian Hoyer


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/12/2014) Now that the Browns have changed their front office with CEO Joe Banner and GM Mike Lombardi out, the future for quarterback Brian Hoyer could be unknown, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Lombardi was a fan of Hoyer and brought him to Cleveland. The new staff seems to love him too, but the Browns could draft a quarterback at No. 4 overall and decide to move on from Hoyer.

The report says if Hoyer wants a chance to start then Texans coach Bill O'Brien, who coached Hoyer in New England, would probably at least be intrigued. But the Browns would have to decide to part ways with Hoyer to make that happen since he's signed through this season.


Kyle Shanahan praises Brian Hoyer as 'very capable'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) New Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan praised incumbent starting quarterback Brian Hoyer but stopped well short of saying Hoyer would start in 2014, reports ESPNCleveland.com. Cleveland is expected to draft a quarterback early.

“I think Brian’s a very capable guy,” Shanahan said. “Everyone’s looking for one of those top five guys. If you’re not one of those top five guys, then odds are you’re trying to get replaced. Obviously, no one here has proven they are one of those top five guys.

“But he has shown he can play in this league," Shanahan continued. "You’ve got to see what his ceiling is and how high a level he can reach. Everyone wants a franchise quarterback. I truly believe that’s the only way to have sustained success in this league. I’m not saying he is. But he hasn’t shown that he can’t be. So I’m looking forward to studying him more. It’s nice to be in this building so I can look at a lot of practice tape, also.”


Brian Hoyer believes he will be starter in 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2014) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer is resigned to his team drafting a quarterback in May, but remains confident that he will be the starter in 2014.

Hoyer won all three games he started this season, though he was knocked out of the third against Buffalo. The Browns collapsed thereafter, losing 10 of their last 11 to once again rev up speculation that they must fill their need for a franchise quarterback in the draft.

"It's pretty much inevitable, they will draft a quarterback and that's nothing new," Hoyer said via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "In this league, there's always someone coming up behind you or laterally moving. There's going to be someone for me to compete with, which I have no problem with. That makes you better.

"I was able to start for three games last year, and we did well. When I played, we won, and I'm just looking forward to trying to get back to where I left things off. I think as long as I have a chance, I feel confident in my abilities."

Hoyer completed 57 of 96 passes for 615 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.


Brian Hoyer says he's on track


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/31/2014) The Browns' Brian Hoyer told the official team's radio program he's planning on being the starting quarterback heading into the 2014 season. Hoyer tore his ACL in his second start against the Bills and missed the rest of the year.

"I'm feeling great, rehab's going well ... made a lot of progress with the running," Hoyer said. "Definitely on track, if not ahead, looking forward to getting back."

Despite the good play by Hoyer in 2013 the Browns are expected to bring in another quarterback this offseason.  


Report: Browns to probably pay Brian Hoyer roster bonus


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) The Browns will likely pay the $250,000 roster bonus on quarterback Brian Hoyer, which is due by March 15, per ESPN.

Hoyer was a pleasant, but brief surprise for the Browns early in the year. He led them to three wins in three starts, but a knee injury sustained in the last of those games knocked him out for the season. He is a considered a possible starter in 2014.


Mike Pettine: Brian Hoyer a winner


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) New Browns coach Mike Pettine indicated Thursday that the quarterback of the future could be a quarterback of the present. He called Brian Hoyer a "winner" and added that his "intangibles are off the charts," per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Hoyer started three games for Cleveland in 2013 and gave the team and town hope by throwing for 615 yards and five touchdowns. The Browns won all three games he started, but won just one more after a knee injury ended his season.


Brian Hoyer should be ready by spring


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2013) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer underwent successful surgery Friday to repair his torn right anterior cruciate ligament, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. He spent a lot of time in the hospital over the last week as earlier his wife gave birth to the couple's second child. 

Hoyer is expected to make a full recovery after his surgery. The QB is expected to be able to participate in organized team activities beginning in May. 

"We’re hopeful in the spring that we’ll see him,'' said coach Rob Chudzinski. "Again, I’ll get a little better idea [later]. From my understanding, everything went well with the surgery. Just knowing him, from a rehab standpoint, I know he’s going to do everything he can to get ready."

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2013) The Browns have placed quarterback Brian Hoyer on injured reserve, the team's official site reports Saturday. He is done for the season.

Hoyer is set for knee surgery Friday. He led the team to victories in Weeks 3 and 4 and threw for 615 yards in three games with five touchdowns and three interceptions.

Brian Hoyer set for knee surgery next Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Brian Hoyer done for season with ACL tear


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2013) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer is out for the year with an ACL tear in his right knee, Rob Chudzinski has confirmed. The injury was sustained on an awkward fall and hit after he scrambled for a first down early in the win Thursday against Buffalo.

Report: Brian Hoyer has partial ACL tear


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2013) An MRI on Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer Friday revealed a partial ACL tear in the right knee, a source told ESPN.

Hoyer injured the knee while sliding awkwardly and taking a hit early in the win over Buffalo on Thursday night. He had guided Cleveland to two consecutive wins after two losses to start the season.

Brandon Weeden, who was replaced by Hoyer in Week 3, turned the tables against the Bills. He returned from a thumb injury to lead the comeback victory.

The long-term status of Hoyer remains unsettled. But it appears he will out for a while.


Browns fear Brian Hoyer has torn ACL


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2013) The Browns are worried quarterback Brian Hoyer tore his ACL during Thursday's game against the Bills, according to ESPN.

Hoyer is set to have an MRI Friday, so the injury is not official yet. But there's some concern within the organization that Hoyer tore his ACL. If that's the case, Hoyer would likely miss the rest of the season. Since being named the Browns starting quarterback, the club has gone 3-0. Hoyer has thrown for 5 touchdowns in three games this season.


Brian Hoyer headed for MRI on sprained knee


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2013) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has officially been diagnosed with a sprained right knee, though that is just the initial diagnosis following evaluations in the locker room Thursday.

Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski told reporters after the game that Hoyer will have an MRI taken on the knee Friday. He admitted to the NFL Network broadcast crew at halftime that he fears Hoyer has ligament damage, but would not elaborate following the game.

Hoyer left the game on crutches and wearing a knee brace. The Browns face the Lions in Week 6 in their next game. 


Brian Hoyer unable to return; ligament damage feared


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2013) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was unable to return from a knee injury in Week 5 against the Bills Thursday, and it looks like this could be an issue that lingers past the week. According to the NFL Network broadcast, the Browns medical staff fears Hoyer could have torn ligaments in his right knee.

Hoyer will undergo an MRI Friday to determine the extent of the injury. The Browns are off nine days until Week 6 against the Lions, so they will have plenty of time to determine the extent of the injury. 


Brian Hoyer forced out early with knee injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2013) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Bills during the team's second drive, after going down with an awkward looking knee injury.

Hoyer scrambled for a first down, and was hit while attempting to slide. Both knees appeared to get caught under him, and he was immediately helped off the field. Hoyer would walk to the locker room under his own power, but his return is questionable.

Brandon Weeden replaced Hoyer at quarterback in his first game back from a thumb injury. 


Brian Hoyer has challenge in Week 5


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/2/2013) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has been a solid Fantasy option over two games this season -- completing 55 passes for 590 yards and five touchdowns. But his Week 5 opponent, the Bills, have seven interceptions in their last two games, and are holding opposing quarterbacks to under 20 Fantasy points (19.5) on the season. Additionally, this week's game takes place on Thursday night -- which has essentially been a kiss of death for Fantasy statistics, dating back to last season. 

Still, Hoyer has two talented pass-catchers in Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon. And the Bills have given up 678 passing yards in the last two games. Buffalo has also been remarkably consistent in yielding exactly two passing touchdowns in each of the first four games to opposing quarterbacks. 

Hoyer has proven to be a decent Fantasy asset, but the combination of a hot Bills pass defense (which may see the return of star safety Jairus Byrd this week) and the Thursday night matchup makes him a better bench option for Week 5. 


Browns sticking with Brian Hoyer Week 5


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2013) Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said Monday quarterback Brian Hoyer will start Thursday vs. Buffalo, even with quarterback Brandon Weeden (thumb) cleared to play. Hoyer has led Cleveland to two straight wins in Weeden's absence.

Although, Chudzinski left the door open for Weeden to reclaim the starting job by saying the quarterback situation will remain a week-to-week decision instead of naming Hoyer the starter the rest of the season.


Report: Brian Hoyer to start again Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2013) After leading the Browns to two straight wins, quarterback Brian Hoyer will start again Thursday vs. Buffalo, a source told ESPN. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski told reporters following Sunday's win against the Bengals he wanted to evaluate game film before deciding on if Hoyer will continue to replace Brandon Weeden, who has missed the last two games with a thumb injury, as the starting quarterback.

Brian Hoyer a Fantasy starter?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2013) For the second week in a row, Browns starter Brian Hoyer led Cleveland to a win. For the second week in a row, Hoyer has looked like a quality Fantasy quarterback.

Is it time to consider him a starter?

Hoyer was 25 of 38 passing for 269 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions against the Bengals. He now has at least 22 Fantasy points in two starts.

Here's what you have to like about Hoyer: he plays in a pass-happy system, the Browns can't run the ball and he has two elite talents in Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron. And he has a favorable matchup in Week 5 against Buffalo.

You have to worry about the Thursday night jinx, but Hoyer is on fire coming into the game with the Bills. If you need a bye-week replacement -- assuming the Browns don't give Brandon Weeden (thumb) his job back (why would they?) -- then consider Hoyer in Week 5 against Buffalo.


Brian Hoyer downs Bengals in second start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was even better in his second start of the season in a Week 4 win over the Bengals Sunday.

Hoyer was forced to throw the ball a lot yet again, but took much better care of it after his three-interception performance last week. Hoyer completed 25 of 38 passes for 269 yards, while avoiding any turnovers. He tossed two touchdowns in the game, one to Jordan Cameron and another to Chris Ogbonnaya to clinch a 17-6 win.

Hoyer has now led the Browns to consecutive wins after Brandon Weeden opened the season 0-2. Hoyer has completed 59.8 percent of his passes for 590 yards and five touchdowns, with three interceptions in two games.

He will try to keep his strong start up in Week 5, as the Browns get set to face the Bills Thursday.
