Chudzinski: QB Brian Hoyer Out for Season
CLEVELAND — Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski confirmed in a conference call with beat writers Friday that Brian Hoyer suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and will be out for the rest of the season.
Hoyer, a North Olmsted native, was injured on an 11-yard run in the first half of Thursday’s game.
After the rough tackle, he was taken to the locker room and was listed as “questionable” but never returned to the game.
The Browns beat the Bills 37-24 for their third straight win.
Chudzinski also relayed updates on running back Chris Ogbonnaya and defensive lineman Desmond Bryant.
Ogbonnaya will be out with a concussion for an unknown amount of time while the NFL’s concussion protocol is followed.
Bryant is okay and will be ready to play Oct. 13 against Detroit after an incident where he experienced shortness of breath and was taken to the Cleveland Clinic.
