Brian Hoyer will be starting for the Browns this week.
Greg Little won’t be. Multiple Browns beat writers report that head coach Rob Chudzinski announced Wednesday that Little will not start at wide receiver for the Browns against the Vikings on Sunday. Josh Gordon is back from suspension and will start with Davone Bess.
Little has been targeted frequently through the first two weeks, but has just eight catches for 59 yards to show for it. Part of the reason why he hasn’t made more of the opportunities is because his issue with dropping the ball has reared its ugly head once again. According to ESPN Stats and Information, Little had seven drops on 85 passes thrown his was last season and he’s had 18 over the last two years.
Little’s still likely to see a fair amount of time, so he’ll get chances to show that he can be a reliable receiver for the team over the long haul. If he can’t, the Browns will probably make finding someone who is a priority for the offseason.
