With the Browns slated to make a decision on their starting quarterback on Tuesday, veteran Brian Hoyer got the start Monday night at Washington.
And it didn’t go well early for Hoyer and the first-team offense.
The Browns went three-and-out in their first two series with Hoyer, who failed to complete two pass attempts. He was a little behind tight end Jordan Cameron on one throw, then was a little too low on a third-down pass to slot receiver Andrew Hawkins. In Hoyer’s defense, ESPN analyst Jon Gruden observed the timing of both pass plays might have been a little off.
Johnny Manziel was seen warming up after the Browns had the punted to Washington. The first-round pick from Texas A&M is expected to get some first-team reps tonight.
