Brian Hoyer listed as Browns' starter

Brian Hoyer is atop the Cleveland Browns' depth chart.

The quarterback is listed as the starter ahead of Johnny Manziel.

Manziel is the backup.

Manziel worked with the first-team on Monday, but Hoyer got more reps with the first-team offense.

"Where Hoyer is ahead is his ability to throw a ball before a guy breaks open," Browns coach Mike Pettine said. "But we certainly see Johnny making strides in that direction."
