Brian Hoyer injury update: Browns QB needs MRI; may have torn ligaments in right knee


Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was riding the high of two straight wins and the belief that he could be the man to lead his team throughout the remainder of the season, but an early knee injury on Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills put an end to Hoyer’s promising run.

After being taken to the locker room to have his knee evaluated, Hoyer’s return was listed as questionable.

Immediately after the second half began, NFL Network sideline reporter Alex Flanagan announced that Hoyer has been officially been ruled out for the remainder of the game and that he will need to undergo an MRI on his injured right knee.

Even worse for Hoyer is the fact that Flanagan states the team fears the quarterback may have suffered torn ligaments in his knee.

It would be a heart-breaking injury for Hoyer after showing so much promise in his first two starts, but that is the unfortunate twists and turns that comes in the wild NFL landscape.
