Brian Hoyer is on a roll, and the Cleveland Browns aren't about to stop it.
Coach Rob Chudzinski on Monday named Hoyer the starting quarterback for Thursday night's game against the Buffalo Bills. With two wins in two starts since replacing injured Brandon Weeden, Hoyer is the first Browns QB to win his first two starts since Mark Rypien in 1994.
Chudzinski said Weeden has been cleared to play after being sidelined with a sprained right thumb, but the first-year coach is sticking with Hoyer, who led the Browns to a 17-6 win over Cincinnati on Sunday. Chudzinski declined to make Hoyer his starter for the remainder of the season and said he will continue to evaluate the position "week to week."
