UPDATE: Browns QB Brian Hoyer healed up, ready to go for camp

The following is an update to my colleague Brian Murphy's previous news item.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com had a chance to speak with Browns QB Brian Hoyer @bhoyer6 about how his knee is healing after missing most of last season with a torn ACL. Hoyer said he's been cleared by team trainers and insisted he's ready to go, ""I was begging them to let me practice, they said once training camp comes there won't be any limitations, but I'm geared up and ready to go and excited. I can't wait for next Saturday.'' When on the field for 3 games last year he put a surprising 5 touchdowns and one 300 plus passing yard game. He'll be in a battle for first string duties with rookie Johnny Manziel @JManziel2.

Fantasy Analysis:

If Hoyer wins the starting job, he'll still have a tough time putting up decent numbers this year. The Browns have suggested they'll be looking to run the ball more by acquiring veteran running back Ben Tate along with rookies Terrence West and Isaiah Crowell in the draft. There is also the issue of losing his best receiving target in Josh Gordon. Hoyer is a QB38 in our preseason rankings.
