Quarterback Brian Hoyer will start again for the Cleveland Browns when they play host to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Hoyer, starting in the place of the injured Brandon Weeden, has led the Browns to two victories in a row. Weeden has a sprained thumb that he injured in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens. He resumed throwing last week.
Even after trading away Trent Richardson, the Browns have to start Hoyer again, who finished 25 of 38 for 269 yards and no interceptions. He threw a 2-yard TD pass in the first half to tight end Jordan Cameron. Hoyer is turning into a pretty decent QB2 option.
