Happy Friday, Broncos fans! The Browns (3-2) rallied for 13 fourth-quarter points and a 37-24 victory over the Bills (2-3) on Thursday, but the game was a battle of QB attrition.
Five minutes in, Cleveland lost Brian Hoyer to what has since been determined a torn ACL.
Buffalo QB E.J. Manuel also sprained his knee last night, and each will undergo MRIs today to see if there's any serious structural damage.
In Hoyer's absence, previous starter Brandon Weeden led Cleveland to their third straight win, and the team improbably now sits atop the AFC North.
Thankfully, Danny Trevathan was back at practice just a day after having suffered a knee injury that had been feared serious. Champ Bailey, Eric Decker, Matt Prater, and Paris Lenon were limited participants; Champ says he's still improving, but he doesn't sound like a man who's going to play in Dallas.
Champ Bailey says expansion to an 18-game schedule would just be too much to handle physically, and that it would send him to retirement.
