Veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer will reportedly get his second straight preseason start at the helm of the Browns’ offense.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Browns intend to start Hoyer Monday night at Washington.
A sixth-year pro, Hoyer completed 6-of-14 passes for 92 yards in the exhibition opener at Detroit on Saturday night.
First-round pick Johnny Manziel, who relieved Hoyer Saturday night, was 7-of-11 passing for 63 yards while playing with the backups. Manziel, a celebrated collegiate player at Texas A&M, is also expected to get some first-team work vs. Washington, coach Mike Pettine said earlier this week.
Pettine has indicated the Browns want to have a full-time starter in place before the August 23 preseason game vs. St. Louis.
