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.

    This is worthy of the headline “Great News”. It also provides us some flexibility in the upcoming draft in that we don’t have to draft a quarterback at number 4. Anxious to see what he provides this year, but it has to be a quantum leap over last year.

      I agree. If he would have played the rest of the season last year, I don’t think we would have finished at 4-12….

    I still haven’t change my thoughts about Hoyer, LG. I still feel that he will be our starting quarterback, and if we pick up Watkins, and having Cameron and Gordan along with Little, ( if he has learned to catch the ball and hang onto it)! we will see one explosive offense and will be a lot of fun to watch. I still feel that Watkins will be at our number four pick. I can hardly wait, because I feel for the first time in years were going to have a competitive team! however with whatever they’re going to do in picking a QB work QB’s as still kind of got me on the edge of my seat! also it will be interesting to see how it plays out as far as running backs. one thing for certain it’s going to be interesting!

      Nothing that I would like better than to see the Cleveland Browns draft Sammy Watkins……
