It’s been a tough week for the sports fans in Cleveland, but when aren’t those fans going through hell?

Either way, just a day after the Cleveland Indians were bounced from the MLB postseason; Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has been taken out of Thursday’s game with an apparent knee injury after a bogus slide attempt. Hoyer has only started two games for the Browns this year, but the Ohio native quickly became a hometown hero with two straight wins and one over the division rival Cincinnati Bengals.

Now, Cleveland fans are stuck with former first-round pick Brandon Weeden, who has under achieved in his brief NFL tenure. Weeden’s lackluster performance in 2012 has Browns fans wondering why Cleveland even drafted this guy in 2012. To make matters even worse, Weeden was inactive for Weeks 3 and 4, and was the Browns’ back-up quarterback only on Thursday only because Cleveland’s normal No. 2 quarterback Jason Campbell was ruled out. Even still, he will be the signal-caller until Hoyer is healthy once again.

So what does this mean for fantasy football superstars Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon? Well, considering Weeden is a No. 3 quarterback, who lost his job to Hoyer I think you can do the math yourself. Weeden just doesn’t have the chemistry or the skill to make Cameron and Gordon better then they have this season.
