Coach Hue Jackson said the Browns knew about DeShone Kizer's migraine history when the team drafted him.
Jackson said he knew something was wrong on Sunday when Kizer forgot to signal the motion on a play. Kizer said his head was "pounding." Jackson also assured the team isn't worried long-term, and that Kizer's headaches are "sporadic," sometimes going 6-7 months without occurring. Kizer will be under center for Week 3 against the Colts. Sep 18 - 2:53 PM

Browns coach Hue Jackson hopes to name a starting quarterback by Wednesday.

Jackson said he has an "idea" of who will be the starter, but he wants to "watch the tape" of Monday night's game before making a final decision. Brock Osweiler got the start again on Monday night, but he once again struggled with ball placement and had a ball tipped and intercepted at the line. DeShone Kizer led two scoring drives, but he held the ball too long and had a couple very questionable throws. With solid talent on offense, the Browns could surprise if the quarterback situation cooperates.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes the Browns' starting quarterback job is Brock Osweiler's "to lose."

Per McManamon, Osweiler has had his best two practices of camp the last two days after it was announced he would start the preseason opener. Osweiler has taken all of the first-team reps, with DeShone Kizer with the twos and Cody Kessler demoted to the third team. Osweiler would apparently have to lay an egg -- which he's very capable of doing -- to lose the job, while Kizer would have to light it up.

ESPN Cleveland reports "signs are pointing" to Brock Osweiler starting the Browns' first preseason game.

Osweiler hasn't seen many reps with the first-team offense, but outplayed DeShone Kizer and Cody Kessler in Friday's team scrimmage. Coach Hue Jackson said he could "shake things up" next week, suggesting Osweiler will be the new starter at practice. It's an unexpected turn in the Browns' quarterback battle. With Kessler struggling, the Week 1 job may be down to Osweiler and Kizer.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said he plans to keep the same quarterback rotation at least until Friday.

The Browns will conduct their Orange and Brown scrimmage on Friday, and Jackson will wait to see how that plays out before making any decisions. Cody Kessler has remained the first quarterback through the rotation early in camp, but the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich reports he has struggled. It is possible second-rounder DeShone Kizer is able to jump Kessler as early as this weekend. Brock Osweiler continues to work with the second-team offense.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer still considers Cody Kessler the "man to beat" in the Browns' quarterback competition.

Reporter Mary Kay Cabot labels Kessler as the slightest of favorites. Speaking Thursday, coach Hue Jackson said second-rounder DeShone Kizer is ahead of schedule. The local media began rallying around Kizer's chances earlier this summer. Brock Osweiler is not a consideration.
Jul 27 - 7:42 PM

Cody Kessler will get the first reps of OTAs.

It's as expected given Kessler made eight rookie starts and has a full year in Hue Jackson's offense. He'll face competition from DeShone Kizer, Brock Osweiler and Kevin Hogan, with all four mixing in with the first team. Kessler will be on a short leash if he wins the Week 1 job.
