The quarterback competition in Berea is over, and DeShone Kizer has been declared the victor.

He doesn't want it to spin again anytime soon.

Broncos coach Hue Jackson named Kizer the team's starting quarterback for the regular season.

Kizer was the pick over veteran Brock Osweiler, who started the first two preseason games but put up little resistance to Kizer's push.

"I feel a lot better moving around, being able to open up and run better and cover some space", he said. "But he's demonstrated that he's ready, so let's give him a chance to see if he can do it".

Jackson said Kizer, the No. 52 overall pick out of Notre Dame, "has the characteristics we covet" including the big arm and mobility. Jackson is familiar with the growing pains of breaking in a new quarterback - he did it past year with Kessler, who went 0-8 as a starter.

Kizer played the second half against the Saints and led the Browns to two touchdowns.

When he takes the field against the Steelers on September 10, he'll be the 27th quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999.

Marrone has not been pleased with what he has seen from his quarterbacks thus far in the preseason. ". I felt comfortable with him". The decision-making process may have broken Jackson's brain.

"Obviously, (Kizer) is a young man who is very talented", Jackson said.

He tweeted, "Medical vans have been rushed to the site.All efforts being taken to ensure speedy relief and rescue operations". Confirming the toll, ADG Law and Order Anand Kumar said that 10 people were killed and 50 others were injured.

He played well enough to get the Texans to commit a substantial sum to him the following season, but his play in 2016 clearly indicated that he wasn't worth it. There is nothing in my mind that says he is not going to do well. Awesome. Those are the things that I have to find out about him.

Osweiler was asked if he would ask to be traded elsewhere, but he declined to answer. He said Osweiler would be evaluated on a different scale and that Kizer has to get down and not take hits.

-Oakland Raiders left tackle Donald Penn ended his 26-day holdout and returned to practice on Wednesday. The 27-year-old tight end made his on-field debut after missing nearly the first month of practices with a toe injury.

Jackson seemed to be leaning toward opening the season with Osweiler before Kizer outplayed him in the first two preseason games.

Reed was examined by a foot specialist August 1 and recently started using wider shoes and orthotics to help alleviate the soreness in the big toe on his left foot. He also rushed eight times for 47 yards and a TD.

The display provoked several positive and negative reactions, including from many Browns fans, with some even saying they would not watch the team's games if they continued to kneel.

Jackson more or less made the announcement after Saturday's preseason win in Tampa Bay: DeShone Kizer will be the starter. Cleveland is 3-0 in the preseason for the first time since 1994. The offense was strong previous year and the defense came together to near dominance. A player focuses in on game plans and the opponent and works with the starters.

Thomas was signed by Dallas as an undrafted free agent out of Temple.

Leno started all 16 games at left tackle a year ago and is entering his fourth season with the Bears.
