The Brandon Weeden era in Cleveland isn't over yet.
Browns starting quarterback Brian Hoyer left Thursday night's 37-24 win over the Buffalo Bills with a right knee injury. Coach Rob Chudzinski told reporters after the game that Hoyer sprained his knee and will undergo an MRI exam on Friday.
NFL Media's Alex Flanagan reported during the tilt that the Browns fear Hoyer tore knee ligaments, and NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Friday morning that Hoyer is believed to have a torn ACL, per a source briefed on his injury.
The injury came after Hoyer escaped pressure and rushed for a first down. Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso tackled Hoyer after the quarterback appeared to start going into a slide. Hoyer's legs bent underneath him awkwardly. There will be questions whether Alonso committed unnecessary roughness, but it was a bang-bang play.
