Brian Hoyer: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Hoyer (knee) intends to be the Browns' starting quarterback in 2014, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Hoyer, who is 17 weeks removed from ACL surgery, is said to be running, lifting, and throwing these days, Scott Petrak Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While it's probably safe to assume that he's not going all-out at this stage of his rehab, Hoyer thinks he'll be able to participate in the Browns' team workouts, which begin on April 7. Hoyer's intangibles have already drawn the praise of new Browns head coach Mike Pettine, and assuming no setbacks with his recovery, Hoyer is on track to compete for the team's starting QB job this coming season, in all likelihood with an early draftee.
New Browns head coach Mike Pettine said that Hoyer (torn ACL) has "off the chart" intangibles, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabots reports. "I think he's a winner," Pettine said. "The intangibles are off the charts."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hoyer fared reasonably well during a two-game stint as the Browns' staring quarterback in 2013, but his success was a bit overblown. His third start of the season ended early due to a torn ACL, and Hoyer finished the year completing 57-of-96 passes (59.4 percent) for 615 yards (6.41 YPA), with five touchdowns and three interceptions. The knee injury occurred in October, so Hoyer could conceivably be ready for training camp. The Browns will likely retain him in some capacity, but Hoyer's presence probably won't prevent the organization from targeting a potential franchise quarterback. Prior to last season, the 28-year-old signal-caller had attempted just 96 passes in a four-year career spent mostly as Tom Brady's backup.
Hoyer underwent successful surgery on the ACL in his right knee Friday, the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich reports.

Hoyer will miss the rest of the season due to the right knee injury he suffered Thursday night, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "I just got word back on the MRI for Brian Hoyer. It is a torn ACL that will require surgery," coach Rob Chudzinski said Friday. "There is no other damage besides the ACL. Obviously he'll be out for the season."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hoyer played well in his brief starting stint with the Browns, but it remains to be seen whether he showed enough -- or will be healthy enough -- for the team to consider him as a starter next season. With Hoyer done for the season, Brandon Weeden will reclaim the starting QB job, which he'd lost thanks to a thumb injury.
Hoyer has been diagnosed with a partial ACL tear in his right knee, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hoyer will seek a second opinion on his knee, but it has been determined that he will need surgery to repair the tear, and he is facing an extended absence. Hoyer would have been facing a much longer recovery timetable had he suffered a full tear, but he will still need several months to recover after undergoing the procedure, so his season could be over. Fortunately the partial tear will allow him to recover much quicker and give him more time to prove his worth to the Browns.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Hoyer, who is ticketed for free agency after this season, has developed into a trusted backup for the Patriots, but if another team suffers an injury at QB, then the Patriots could consider dangling Hoyer, if they feel that Ryan Mallett is ready to assume the No. 2 QB job. That's something that the team is presumably still evaluating, however.

2011

Though the Patriots drafted fellow QB Ryan Mallett this past April, he's viewed as more of a developmental project than an immediate threat to Hoyer's gig as Tom Brady's top backup. In any case, Hoyer remains next in line for snaps in the event of an injury to Brady.

2010

As an undrafted free agent, the odds were stacked against Hoyer last year, but he'll head into the 2010 season as Tom Brady's top backup once again unless the Patriots make a move to add some veteran QB depth.

2009

Like most undrafted QBs he's a bit of a project, but he enters a Patriots' system where he has a chance to be methodically coached up. If he sticks as a rookie though, he'd either have to beat out Matt Gutierrez or settle for a spot on the practice squad.
