Browns announce Hoyer tore ACL, done for season

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and has been declared out for the season by coach Rob Chudzinski.

Chudzinski said today at a press conference that Hoyer will undergo surgery.

Hoyer tore his anterior cruciate ligament during a win over the Buffalo Bills, injured while sliding and hit by linebacker Kiko Alonso.

"Obviously he's disappointed," Chudzinski said. "If you know him, he's positive. Already thinking about being back.''
