Browns' DeShone Kizer back in as starting quarterback

After suffering a rib injury in Week 6, Hogan has been relegated to the No. 3 quarterback role behind starter DeShone Kizer and backup Cody Kessler.

Even after Kizer performed miserably in his first five National Football League starts before being relegated to backup duties in Week 6 in favor of Kevin Hogan, it was widely expected that Kizer would get another crack at starting before the season concluded, given that the non-contending Browns have little to lose by handing the higher-upside rookie more in-game developmental opportunities.

Kizer was pulled in favor of Kevin Hogan during the Browns' Week 5 loss to the New York Jets and did not play at all against the Houston Texans this past weekend. "We need to start doing those".

Despite benching him, Browns coach Hue Jackson said he believes Kizer was able to learn from observing on the sidelines and that he is prepared to take control of the offense once again.

Jackson made the announcement as the team is preparing for Sunday's game against the Titans. "I think he will understand that better and really what it does to your team as you are in those situations". He played better in the fourth quarter, but by then the game was out of reach. On the season, he's 81-of-159 for 851 yards with three touchdowns and nine interceptions. He said on Wednesday he's intent on making sure he improves and keeps the starting job.
