With both Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer suffering injuries during Sunday’s loss to the Panthers, former Gamecock quarterback Connor Shaw may be activated from the practice squad to start in the Browns’ season finale against the Ravens.
Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer suffered a right shoulder injury during Sunday’s 17-13 loss to the Panthers and will be evaluated day-to-day, a league source confirmed.
With Johnny Manziel suffering a pulled hamstring late in the first half, the Browns might have to activate undrafted rookie Connor Shaw from South Carolina off the practice squad. And if neither Manziel nor Hoyer can play, Shaw could get the start Sunday in Baltimore.
The Browns did not report Hoyer’s injury after the game and have not yet confirmed the report. The extent of his injury is unknown, as is that of Manziel.
During his time at South Carolina Shaw passed for overs 6000 yards, 64 touchdowns and left as the university’s most winningest quarterback.
