Rob Chudzinski: 'I have confidence in Brandon Weeden'

Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski says that he has confidence in quarterback Brandon Weeden.

Rob Chudzinski has insisted that he has confidence in quarterback Brandon Weeden, despite promoting Brian Hoyer above him in the Cleveland Browns' depth chart.

The 29-year-old, who missed the last two games through injury, had to come off the bench during last night's 37-24 win over the Buffalo Bills after Hoyer sustained a knee injury.

The head coach told reporters: "That's what I have expected from him, and that doesn't surprise me about him. For going through that and coming back after watching Brian do a great job for the couple of weeks that he was playing, and responding the way he did says a lot about Brandon.

"I expect them to go out, play and prepare and be prepared at that position to lead our team. It doesn't matter who is there. I have said before, many times, that I have confidence in all three guys. The team has played well, and I think those guys have shown that in the last couple of weeks."

Weeden added: "Regardless if I was the starter or not, still being the quarterback of this football team, eyes are still on you [to] see how you respond. It kind of lit a fire in me. I just need to get going, stay hungry."

Weeden completed 13 of his 24 attempts against Buffalo, completing 197 passing yards.
