Browns not ready to name starting quarterback

CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns coach Mike Pettine has not picked his starting quarterback. Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel haven't convinced him they deserve the job.

Pettine had been expected to announce whether Hoyer or Manziel, the hyped rookie, would start the Sept. 7 opener at Pittsburgh. But the decision has been delayed and could carry through to Cleveland's third preseason game on Saturday. Pettine says the coaching staff will meet Wednesday night and could then choose a starter.

Pettine's decision became tougher after Hoyer and Manziel played poorly in an exhibition loss at Washington on Monday night. Manziel also made an obscene gesture toward the Redskins' sideline, an act Pettine called "extremely disappointing" and will likely result in a fine from the NFL.
