CLEVELAND -- The Browns have placed quarterback Brian Hoyer on injured reserve with a torn knee ligament, officially ending his season.
Hoyer led Cleveland to two wins in his first two starts. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the first quarter of Cleveland's victory over Buffalo on Oct. 3. Hoyer was sliding at the end of a run when his cleat got caught in the turf as he hit the ground. Hoyer will undergo surgery next Friday.
