Brian Hoyer had become one of the big stories in the early stages of the NFL season.
That story came to an unfortunate halt for the former Spartan quarterback when he was injured in the early stages of a victory over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday. Hoyer is out for the season with a torn ACL.
Thanks for your support and prayers. Just a minor speed bump on the road to success. Can’t wait to get back! #GoBrowns
