News: Coach Mike Pettine stated Wednesday that Hoyer will enter training camp as the Browns' starter, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Impact: Both Hoyer and rookie Johnny Manziel will see reps with the first-team offense when training camp opens Friday, but Pettine seems to have hinted that Hoyer will have the edge out of the gates. The quarterback battle is expected to continue on into the preseason, where Pettine expects to make the official announcement on his starter by the third preseason game at the latest. Despite all the hype surrounding the rookie Manziel, it sounds like the job is Hoyer's to lose. Hoyer may be the more experienced option and slightly better pocket passer, but it will certainly be tough to hold off the x-factor that Manziel brings to the table. Unless one candidate is able to drastically separate themself during camp, it seems as if both quarterbacks will make at least one preseason start, after which Pettine should finally announce a decision.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Mike Pettine indicated Monday that the Browns expect to name their starting quarterback by the team's third preseason game, reports. Pettine added that he wants to hold a "fair" competition between Hoyer (knee) and Johnny Manziel before making the decision on who will start at QB for the team in Week 1. Impact: With that in mind, the Browns' third preseason contest takes place on Aug. 23, though the report notes that a call on the team's starting QB front could potentially come sooner than that date. In any case, Hoyer (who is bouncing back from a torn ACL) will need to re-prove his health in the coming weeks in order to hold off the promising Manziel, who was selected by the Browns with the 22nd pick in May's NFL draft.(RotoWire, )

News: Hoyer (knee) declared that he will be "no doubt" 100 percent healthy when training camp starts later in July, reports. Impact: Hoyer suffered a torn ACL last October, and as a precaution, he was held out of full team activities during OTAs and minicamp earlier this summer. Once training camp begins, the real battle for the starting quarterback job with first-rounder Johnny Manziel also starts, and Hoyer plans to be full-go from Day 1. Hoyer is the more experienced and arguably the safer option, but there's no denying what the electrifying Manziel potentially brings to the table. This is sure to be one of the most important position battles to monitor during camp, and could extend into the preseason if neither quarterback is able to emerge as the frontrunner.(RotoWire, )
