Browns place QB Hoyer on IR
Berea, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The Cleveland Browns placed quarterback Brian Hoyer on injured reserve with a torn ACL.
Hoyer hurt his right knee on a scramble during the first quarter of Cleveland's victory over Buffalo on Oct. 3. He broke free along the right sideline and picked up a first down, but was hit from behind by Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso and his legs bent awkwardly underneath him.
To fill the roster spot, Cleveland signed rookie wide receiver Charles Johnson off Green Bay's practice squad.
