The move underscores the uncomfortable, desperate times Jackson finds himself in. Kizer was benched two weeks ago in the middle of a loss to the New York Jets and did not start against fellow rookie Deshaun Watson last week when Cleveland lost to the Houston Texans. Now Kessler, the team's third starting quarterback of the season, enters the fold.
If nothing else, Jackson's impatience shows just how badly he wants to snap the team's winless streak. The Browns (0-6) are heading down the same, directionless path they were a year ago, cycling from one quarterback to another.
