DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Next week, the Cleveland Browns will play the first game of the 2017 preseason.
The team took another step to prepare for that game with Friday night's Orange and Brown Scrimmage at First Energy Stadium.
Here's what head coach Hue Jackson had to say about the quarterback play:
Heading into camp, the QBs were ranked as such:
- Cody Kessler (2nd year player, was with Cleveland last year)
- Brock Osweiler (drafted in 2012, former Denver Bronco/Houston Texan)
- Deshone Kizer (rookie out of Notre Dame)
- Kevin Hogan (2nd year player, was with Cleveland last year)
Will he look into potential changes at the quarterback position moving forward? Jackson said yes:
Jackson stressed that he didn't say he will change it, just that he may change it.
"It probably won't be (different) tomorrow," he said. "As we start getting ready to play New Orleans, by Monday I'm sure it will be what it is going to be."
Jackson said he's not concerned the first team offense didn't score on the second team defense, and that he doesn't think there's a rush on deciding on a starting quarterback. He did say that deciding by the third preseason game is fair, but he wants to do it as fast as he can.
"What's important is we do it the right way," he said.
Jackson said he wants to QB competition to be fair.
"This thing is still really fluid in my mind," he said.
