Browns | Brian Hoyer has partial tear
Fri, 04 Oct 2013 08:51:38 -0700
Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) has a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. He'll seek a second opinion before likely facing season-ending surgery.
It's a little uncommon to have reconstructive surgery for a partially torn ACL. We'd wait to see the prognosis after the second opinion before writing him off. However, it looks like Brandon Weeden is back in the fold for the short term.
