Today's top US headline, Cleveland Browns have announced that Johnny Manziel will not be their starting quarterback when the NFL regular season begins.
The former Texas A&M star has had a shaky start to life in the NFL, with two average pre-season game performances against Detroit and Washington.
All though Manziel has done well to not to turn the ball over, Browns coach Mike Pettine has decided to go with the more experienced Brian Hoyer.
Hoyer won all three games that he started for the Browns in 2013, but like Manziel, he has not been overly impressive in the pre-season so far.
In fact, undrafted free-agent Connor Shaw came up with the best stats amongst Browns QB's against the Redskins on Monday Night Football, albeit against third-string players.
Manziel looked to be pushing Hoyer close for the starting berth, but a hand gesture he made to the Redskins bench on Monday showing his poor attitude made Pettine's decision a whole lot easier.
It's highly likely that Manziel's actions pushed Pettine over the edge, with the Browns coach now saying that Hoyer was always the leader in the race.
Let's be honest though. Brian Hoyer starting for Cleveland won't exactly fill Browns fans with much enthusiasm. The AFC North side have way more problems than their quarterback choice, so at least making a decision now will allow them to focus more on their glaring issues.
Hoyer will lose eventually
So Manziel will be playing back-up this season, but expect him to come in when things go wrong for Hoyer, which they will do.
That's all for today, check back tomorrow for more video news.
