Coach Rob Chudzinski said Wednesday at his weekly press conference that Brian Hoyer will get the start for the Browns at quarterback against the Cincinnati Bengals. Brandon Weeden has not started throwing yet with his injured thumb, but Chudzinski said he is making progress. The team expects Weeden will begin throwing this week.
Brian Hoyer started last Sunday’s game against the Vikings and completed 30 of 54 passes for 321 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions while leading the team to their first win.
Brandon Weeden injured his thumb in the Browns’ second game, a 14-6 loss in Baltimore. For the season, Weeden is 47 of 86 for 516 yards, with one touchdown pass and three interceptions.
