Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) expects to take part in the team's organized team activities (OTAs) in May.
Huddle Up: It's obviously early, but Hoyer looks to be the early favorite to open the season as the Browns' starter with the team also expected to spend a high draft pick on a rookie.

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said he liked QB Brian Hoyer coming out of college and believes he has a chance to become a successful quarterback in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Expect at least 2 things this coming offseason with the Browns' QB situation: A newcomer (likely via the draft) will be brought in as the team's projected franchise QB and Hoyer will be kept around to bridge the transition and serve as a valuable backup.

The Cleveland Browns are expected to pay QB Brian Hoyer the $250,000 roster bonus he is scheduled to receive in March.
Huddle Up: Hoyer's breakout season was cut short by injury, and he'll be in the mix to start 2014 with whatever QB the Browns' draft in May.

The Cleveland Browns have placed QB Brian Hoyer (knee) on Injured Reserve, ending his 2013 season.
Huddle Up: Hoyer was playing well but now the Browns will have to go back to Brandon Weeden. Unless Weeden has improved dramatically over the last couple weeks, that's not good news for Cleveland or fantasy owners.

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer is believed to have torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. However, MRI results aren't available yet.
Huddle Up: Still speculative at this point, but the injury didn't look good. Brandon Weeden would resume starting duties in Cleveland if Hoyer is out, with Jason Campbell in the backup role.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer was helped off the field after suffering a knee injury in the team's Week 5 game. He may have suffered torn ligaments and will not return.
Huddle Up: Hoyer was injured at the end of an 11-yard scramble on the second drive of the game, and he departed with 2 completions in 4 attempts for 25 yards and the fateful 11-yard run. He was replaced by Brandon Weeden, with Jason Campbell a healthy scratch. If Hoyer is seriously hurt, it would only be the latest cruel twist of fate for the Browns as Hoyer had been showing promise going 2-0 as a starter with 590 yards, 5 TDs and 3 picks.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer will start in Week 5.
Huddle Up: File this under: DUH. Hoyer has looked like Brett Favre in comparison to Brandon Weeden thus far.

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said Sunday, Sept. 29, that he would not commit to QB Brian Hoyer as his starting quarterback for the Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Come on. We all know it's Brian Hoyer. And that is good for the likes of Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron.

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden is out for Week 4. He hopes to begin throwing later this week. QB Brian Hoyer will start again this week.
Huddle Up: Even when Weeden's thumb is better he's unlikely to get his job back. He can contact Trent Richardson about a good real estate agent and moving company.

The Cleveland Browns will start QB Brian Hoyer in Week 3. QB Jason Campbell will be the backup.
Huddle Up: A mild upset here, as Campbell came on in relief of Weeden last week and has more NFL experience than Hoyer. What a way to welcome Josh Gordon back to the lineup.

The Cleveland Browns signed free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Cardinals) to an undisclosed two-year deal Thursday, May 16.
Huddle Up: Hoyer didn't last long on the open market after being released by the Cardinals, but the road to playing time won't be any smoother with Brandon Weeden, Jason Campbell and Thaddeus Lewis already on the Brownies' QB depth chart.

The Arizona Cardinals have waived QB Brian Hoyer.
Huddle Up: With Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton, and Ryan Lindley on the roster there was no need for Hoyer. Expect him to catch on as a backup elsewhere.
