(BEREA), Ohio – On Tuesday, Brian Hoyer, an American football quarterback for Cleveland Browns, joined his teammates again after recovering from his knee injury.
Due to his injury, he was unable to participate in team’s practice sessions, but his zeal towards the most irritating position on the Browns was quite high.
He said, “until someone tells me otherwise, I feel like I’m the starter for this team.”
Hoyer injured his knee in his third start for the Browns. The match ended in a win over the Buffalo Bills. He won the first two starts immediately and seemed to take control of the starting task. But, moments later he slipped and was hit badly by Kiko Alonso, a linebacker for the Buffalo Bills. The injury was followed by a surgery two weeks later.
Six months after the surgery, Hoyer was fully energetic and looked confident in the field. His reflexes were strong and he was behaving like the team’s starter again.
Jordan Cameron, the tight end of the Cleveland Browns said,”assertive is a good way to describe him.”
Mike Pettine, the head coach of Cleveland Browns, said that Hoyer is already ahead of schedule and it is expected that he will be full-go for the training camp, if not for the full-team mini camp which is scheduled in June. Pettine said, “I know we don’t play a game until August, but I also know that in order to be the guy in August you put the time in in the off season.”
There are some other quarterbacks in the team too, which include veterans Tyler Thigpen and Vince Young, selected on a tryout basis via mini camp.
Pettine said that the team would probably sign one of these two at the end of the three-day camp.
