Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer is participating in the team's voluntary minicamp as he recovers from offseason right knee surgery.

Wearing a brace, Hoyer moved well during the 30 minutes of practice open to media members on Tuesday. Hoyer, who injured his knee in his third start last season, is projected to be Cleveland's starter, but the team is expected to pick a quarterback early in next week's draft to provide competition at the pivotal position.

The Browns are also working out veteran quarterbacks Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen this week in coach Mike Pettine's first minicamp. Young, 30, hasn't played in a regular-season game since 2011 with Philadelphia. He spent parts of the past two offseasons with Buffalo and Green Bay.

Young spent five seasons with Tennessee. He's 31-19 as an NFL starter.
