The Cleveland Browns are bracing for bad news on injured quarterback Brian Hoyer.

It's believed that Hoyer tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a win over the Buffalo Bills, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN and Sirius NFL Radio.

Hoyer got injured while sliding and was hit by linebacker Kiko Alonso.

With Hoyer out, Brandon Weeden led the Browns to a win.
