Hogan to replace Kizer as starting QB for Browns game vs. Texans

Browns head coach Hue Jackson announced this morning that Kevin Hogan will start Sunday’s game at Houston. Hogan replaced rookie DeShone Kizer in the second half of last week’s 17-14 loss to the Jets. Kizer started the first five games of the season.

Hogan is the 28th different staring quarterback for the Browns since 1999.

“I’ve made the decision to start Kevin this week,” Jackson said in a statement. “We’ve liked what Kevin has been able to do within our offense when he’s been in there and he will ‪start on Sunday because that’s what we feel is best for our team at this point in time. This does not change the way we feel about DeShone going forward. He has worked extremely hard and still very much has a bright future. Right now, it’s better for him and his development to back up Kevin.”

The Browns (0-5) meet the Texans at 1 p.m. Sunday. The game will be broadcast on WHIO-TV Ch. 7 and AM 1290, News 95.7 WHIO.
