Last night, the Cleveland Browns announced that rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel as the preseason Game 2 starter for their game next Monday.

This morning, ESPN’s Bob Holtzman is reporting that Manziel is “now ahead” of veteran Brian Hoyer for the Browns starting position.

Two weeks ago, Holtzman reported that Hoyer was going to be the regular season starter. He added, “The players are starting to think they were wrong with Manziel pulling ahead by showing superior play-making ability both in practice and during Cleveland’s preseason opener Saturday night.”

The 21-year-old went 7-of-11 for 63 yards, while adding six rushes for 27 yards. He came into the game midway through the second quarter.

Manziel was in the game with the Browns second and third team offense, and was in for four drives after getting off to a shaky start following a 3-and-out on his first drive.

The Browns have been attempting to evening things up in training camp, as both quarterbacks get snaps.
