The Browns plan to start quarterback Brian Hoyer over Johnny Manziel during the team's second preseason game Monday at Washington, a source told NFL.com.
What? But Manziel was getting first-team reps in practice this week! Of course Hoyer was gettign the nod over him this week. The Browns are looking to open the season with Hoyer as their starter.
