Quarterback Brian Hoyer was on hand and participating in various drills at a Browns offseason practice, according to a report from The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Hoyer was spotted moving around well and has been cleared for seven-on-seven drills. He has yet to be cleared for full team drills, though Coach Mike Pettine told the Plain Dealer that Hoyer is ahead of schedule with his recovery.
Hoyer tore his ACL after becoming Cleveland's starter early in the season last October.
That's good news for the Browns, as Pettine also told the Plain Dealer that the organization doesn't want to be in the position to start a rookie quarterback if it doesn't have to.
Hoyer went 3-0 as a starter and was Cleveland's best quarterback when healthy a year ago. Hoyer completed 59.4 percent of his passes for 615 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.
