Browns' DeShone Kizer: Being benched 'sparked my competitive juices'

Share

One week after benching rookie second-round pick DeShone Kizer and installing second-year quarterback Kevin Hogan as his team's starter, Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson has reinstated Kizer as QB1.

But Jackson said Kizer appeared to have learned a lot from being benched, while Hogan's first start ended in a 33-17 defeat at the Houston Texans. Kizer's biggest issue: a league-leading nine interceptions.

Canada: Quebec to vote banning of face veil in public
According to Al- Jazeera, the bill on banning face veil is expected to be voted on next week. In the past seven years, similar bills failed to pass two times - in 2010 and 2013.

"I think when you see some of the things that have happened to you in games and you can see it happening with somebody else that hurts your football team, you undestand the turnovers are putting the team at risk", Jackson said.

This Wednesday's quarterback shuffle has resulted in the Browns again carrying a different quarterback depth chart than they had a week ago as they began on-field preparations for the Sunday game vs. the Titans.

Police arrested and charged the children's brother, 19-year-old Malik Vincent Murphy, with two counts of first-degree murder. The two fought until the suspect's father was able to detain him in the garage, according to a police document.

"It's understood now that if you're not performing, there's definitely going to be a guy that can perform", Kizer said before practice. The Browns lost by just three points, 21-18, after Kizer led a late touchdown drive and the defense couldn't make a stop to get the ball back to the offense. Kessler started in eight games last season and completed 65.6 percent of his passes and threw for six touchdowns versus two interceptions.

"It's on me to make sure that question never comes back up", Kizer said. "He just kept doing what he needed to do and I told him that day when I made the decision that Kevin was the backup, at some point in time you will get your opportunity, too and that is what I am going to do". After suffering a rib injury in Week 6, Hogan has been relegated to the No. 3 quarterback role behind starter DeShone Kizer and backup Cody Kessler.
