 CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns coach Mike Pettine has set Tuesday as his target date. That's when he'll say whether Brian Hoyer or rookie Johnny Manziel is the starting quarterback for the opener.
Pettine said Thursday that Hoyer will start against the Washington Redskins on Monday night, with Manziel getting snaps with the first-team offense. Pettine isn't sure how he'll divide their time and will see how the game unfolds. His focus is making sure the ''reps are close to equal.''
Hoyer started Cleveland's preseason opener at Detroit, with Manziel playing exclusively with the backups. Pettine says the Browns are fortunate to have two quarterbacks with ''NFL starter ability.''
Pettine would not confirm or deny a report Manziel was late to a team meeting this week.
