Browns’ quarterbacks struggle in rain

Browns coach Mike Pettine expects to name a starting quarterback for next Monday’s game against Washington sometime this week.

Until then, the competition remains wide open.

During a rain-soaked practice Monday morning, Brian Hoyer continued to take reps with the first-team offense, while Johnny Manziel practiced with the second team. Both quarterbacks struggled in the sloppier conditions, with Hoyer throwing two interceptions.

Pettine said that he will mix the reps through the week, expecting to make a decision with the staff based on a number of factors.

In Saturday’s preseason opener, Hoyer was 6 of 14 for 92 yards. Manziel completed seven passes in 11 attempts, adding 27 rushing yards on six carries.

Milliner was injured during practice Sunday, about a half-hour after fellow cornerback Dexter McDougle was lost for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Milliner had an X-ray on his ankle, but the team is waiting for the swelling to subside before performing an MRI.
