Browns third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer will start against the Chicago Bears in the preseason finale at 8 tonight at Soldier Field, the team announced this evening.
Backup quarterback Jason Campbell was expected start in place of Brandon Weeden, who’s resting tonight like almost all of the Browns’ starters. But Campbell has flu-like symptoms and plans to sit out.
Campbell missed practice Tuesday with the illness. Campbell, though, will be available to play tonight if needed, a team spokesman said.
