Lone exhibition game features Johnny Football
WASHINGTON (AP) — There’s just one NFL exhibition game tonight and it features the much-publicized quarterback battle of the Browns. Cleveland is playing at Washington with the status of No. 1 on the quarterback depth chart still uncertain.
Brian Hoyer will start the game with the first-string with Johnny Manziel watching from the sideline. Then the former Heisman Trophy winner will replace Hoyer with the first teamers so the coaching staff can get a look at him.
Mike Pettine, the Browns coach, has said he would like to name a regular season starter by tomorrow.
