Browns officially name Kevin Hogan starting quarterback


BEREA, Ohio - Kevin Hogan will be the new starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns when they play the Houston Texans on Sunday, coach Hue Jackson announced Wednesday. This does not change the way we feel about DeShone going forward.

The Cleveland Browns have decided to make a change at quarterback in the wake of some of the struggles that rookie DeShone Kizer has had in the early part of the season. Hogan replaced Kizer last week at halftime in the Browns' loss to the Jets, in which he completed 8-of-17 passes for 87 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception.

Hogan gave the offense a spark last week after a scoreless first half.

The DAMO Academy, short for "Academy for Discovery, Adventure, Momentum, and Outlook", will be led by Alibaba CTO Jeff Zhang. After 831 days, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. regained the title of the world's biggest e-commerce company, albeit briefly.

Jackson changed that position Monday, though, saying he would "ride through the ups and downs until I determine that the ups and downs are too much", and that he had stuck with Kizer through plenty of growing pains. Hogan was not involved in the camp competition for the job but impressed the team's decision-makers with strong performances in the final two preseason games and has been the No. 2 quarterback for the first five games, and he has played in three.

Browns quarterback Kevin Hogan will start this week for Cleveland, and likely for the foreseeable future. He's completed 40-of-64 career passes for 481 yards with three touchdowns and four interceptions.

The Browns hope the time on the sidelines will help Kizer regenerate himself.
