Berea, Ohio • Browns rookie Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer are fighting it out to be Cleveland’s starting quarterback.
Manziel and Hoyer are on the field together Wednesday for the second day of organized team activities under first-year Browns coach Mike Pettine, who earlier this week said he doesn’t want the battle between the two "to be warm and fuzzy."
The Browns expect Manziel, the former Texas A&M star taken in the first round of the NFL draft, to challenge Hoyer, who is coming off right knee surgery.
As roughly 60 media members lined the outdoor practice fields, Manziel and Hoyer fired passes as cameras clicked with their every move. Hoyer took the snaps with the first-team offense.
Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is also practicing as he awaits a possible NFL suspension for reportedly failing a drug test.
