News: Browns head coach Hue Jackson said following Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Jaguars that Kizer would likely start for the rest of the season, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. "Where we are right now, I need to continue to see him,'' Jackson said of the rookie quarterback. "Let's let him play. Let's let him play this thing out. As long as he's healthy, let's keep putting him out there. I want to walk away from this season knowing exactly what DeShone Kizer is top to bottom. He deserves that."
Impact: Kizer committed four turnovers in Sunday's loss, but Jackson didn't hesitate to commit to the rookie as his starter for Week 12 against the Bengals. The coach's comments further suggest that Kizer will start beyond Week 12, though it's possible Jackson changes his mind if there aren't signs of progress in the coming weeks. The only real positive from the Week 11 loss was wideout Corey Coleman (hand), who returned from injured reserve to catch six of 11 targets for 80 yards. With Josh Gordon eligible to return from suspension Week 13 against the Chargers, the team may get five games to evaluate Kizer with the aid of a legitimate NFL-caliber supporting cast.
