Report: Browns QB Johnny Manziel will factor into Week 2 vs. Saints

Sunday September 14th, 2014

Browns rookie QB Johnny Manziel is expected to factor into Sunday's matchup against the Saints, reports CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Though Brian Hoyer will start, La Canfora states that the Browns might "feel the need to be creative and throw different looks at the Saints given the limitations of their offensive personnel," referencing the Browns injured tight end Jordan Cameron, along with suspended wideout Josh Gordon. La Canfora adds that the team has been "working on read-option plays for Manziel all offseason."
