The Cleveland Browns held their first mini-camp of the 2014 season, and quarterback Brian Hoyer was the guy taking the snaps behind center. The great news is Hoyer didn’t show any signs of restriction, because of his surgically repaired knee.
Hoyer was able to move around behind the line of scrimmage as though nothing happened to his knee. His mobility wasn’t restricted at all. Hoyer looked both, quick and strong. He had surgery to repair a torn right anterior cruciate in October.
It’s amazing how fast the quarterback was able to rehab this injury. Years ago this could have been a career ending injury. Lucky for Hoyer and the Browns, that’s a thing of the past.
The practice was open to the media for about 15 minutes. Hoyer was able to move swiftly through the passing drills, throw good passes with plenty of velocity on them, and jogged with little effort back to the spot he started from.
Hoyer looked good. There is no doubt the Cleveland native is ready to compete to be the Browns quarterback this season.
Browns general manager, Ray Farmer was excited about where Brian Hoyer is with his rehab. If he was limited in this mini-camp, it certainly didn’t show. He is going to be ready when the season starts, and his confidence in his abilities to deliver the football looked strong as well.
