Hoyer was awful in Sunday's loss to the Jags.

Hoyer lost a fumble that led to a field goal in the third quarter and threw an interception in the fourth. He completed 16 of 41 passes for 215 yards and was sacked three times. This effort will likely start rekindling debate about how long first-round draft pick Johnny Manziel will stay on the sideline.

Hoyer threw for 292 yards and three scores as Cleveland stormed back to win 29-28 at Tennessee on Sunday.

Hoyer now has six TDs and just one interception on the year. At this rate, it's unlikely we see Johnny Manziel anytime soon.

Hoyer was 19 of 25 for 290 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Baltimore.

Hoyer has done a decent job through three games with a 97.5 passer rating and no interceptions, though he also has only three touchdowns.

Hoyer took the Browns down the field and to something they haven't had in 10 years - a win in the home opener. He directed an 85-yard drive to set up Billy Cundiff's 29-yard field goal with three seconds left, giving Cleveland a 26-24 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Hoyer went 8 of 11 for 77 yards on the last drive and finished 24 of 40 for 204 yards and a TD.

Hoyer will open the season as Cleveland's starting quarterback after winning his summer competition over rookie Johnny Manziel.

Browns coach Mike Pettine picked Hoyer over Manziel to start the Sept. 7 at Pittsburgh, finally ending a competition that dragged through the summer. Hoyer is the choice for now, but the real test for him will be how long he keeps it from Manziel.

Hoyer is participating in the team's voluntary minicamp as he recovers from offseason right knee surgery.

Wearing a brace, Hoyer moved well during the 30 minutes of practice open to media members on Tuesday. Hoyer, who injured his knee in his third start last season, is projected to be Cleveland's starter, but the team is expected to pick a quarterback early in next week's draft to provide competition at the pivotal position.
