BEREA, Ohio -- Week 3. Quarterback No. 3. The Browns are up to their usual changes, just a lot earlier than normal. With Brandon Weeden out with a sprained thumb for at least one game, and Clevelands offence unable to score, coach Rob Chudzinski shockingly named third-string QB Brian Hoyer his starter for Sundays game at Minnesota and demoted troubled wide receiver Greg Little. Chudzinskis decision to start Hoyer is a surprise since he picked him ahead of experienced backup Jason Campbell, who came off the bench last week after Weeden was injured in Baltimore. Hoyer had been listed as Clevelands third-team quarterback behind Campbell since training camp opened, and it had been assumed that if Weeden couldnt play, Campbell would move one spot up the depth chart. But Chudzinski decided to go with Hoyer to help the Browns (0-2) get their first win. "I feel like based on our current situation -- where were at offensively as well as getting into the game planning for Minnesota -- that Brians strengths are the best fit for this week and that he gives us our best chance to win," Chudzinski said. "The things that he does well fit what we need. For me, its about who gives us the best chance to win. "Were 0-2 right now, so were looking to shake things up to start winning games. Were hoping this is a spark we need." Chudzinski added another layer of alarm to Wednesdays news by failing to guarantee Weeden would get his job back. "Im going to leave all the options open," Chudzinski said. "Really, its a matter of where hes at from a health standpoint and all that plays into it and where were at and how guys are playing as well." Browns general manager Michael Lombardi has long admired Hoyer, but Chudzinski said the choice to start him was "absolutely my decision." Hoyer will be the 19th quarterback to start for the Browns since 1999, a troubling figure that maybe best explains why the club is 73-154 since its expansion return with one playoff appearance. As Clevelands offensive co-ordinator in 2007, Chudzinski oversaw the benching of starter Charlie Frye after the opener for Derek Anderson, who led the Browns to a 10-6 record with a high-scoring offence. "Its just evidence that a change can be good," Chudzinski said. "It remains to be seen how Brian plays. Im expecting him to play well." Weeden injured his thumb when he banged it on the helmet of a teammate while throwing a pass in Sundays 14-6 loss to Baltimore. The second-year starter will visit a hand specialist on Thursday, when he should get a better sense of how long he will be out. "You never want to get hurt," said Weeden, who was sacked 11 times in Clevelands two losses. "I dont care when it is, could be the 16th game or the first game. As a player, you want to be out there. So, yeah it is frustrating. Even though the results werent there offensively, we were starting to do some better things. "I want to be out there with my guys." Glancing at the black brace on his right hand, Weeden quietly answered questions. He seemed caught off guard when told about Chudzinskis comment that his job may not be waiting for him. "I dont worry about that stuff," Weeden said. Running back Trent Richardson isnt concerned about who he lines up with in the backfield. "It really doesnt matter to me. Im behind my quarterback 100 per cent, whoever he is," Richardson said. "Im glad people have been sleeping on Hoyer. So when he comes out to surprise people, itd be a bigger shock to the world. Hes a smart dude." For Hoyer, the chance to start for the Browns is a dream. The 27-year-old grew up in Cleveland. It will be the second career start for the fifth-year QB, who appeared in Arizonas season finale last year against San Francisco and completed 19 of 34 passes for 225 yards. However, Hoyer, who was waived by New England, Pittsburgh and Arizona in a nine-month span last year, gained invaluable experience and the confidence to do it again. "Every situation is unique and this what I came here for -- to play," said Hoyer, who signed with Cleveland in May. "You dont come here to be just a guy, and I think anybody who plays this position in this league, they want to be on the field. But unfortunately, there can only be one." Hoyer started the exhibition finale after Campbell fell ill in Chicago. He completed 24 of 35 passes for 307 yards and a TD with two interceptions. Campbell, who has made 71 career starts, was not available in the locker room. Chudzinski said Campbell handled not starting with class. "Hes a team player," Chudzinski said. "He said hell be ready if we need him." ---- NOTES: Little, who has dropped several passes, was dropped himself as Chudzinski said WRs Davone Bess and Josh Gordon, back from a two-game suspension, will start.

Put in sod.MALMO, Sweden - Ending a four-year run without a gold medal wont be easy for Canada at the world junior hockey championship. The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. "Youve got to expect theyll be structured and hard working," coach Brent Sutter said Wednesday after a one-hour skate at the cosy Isstadion, where they face the Germans on Thursday. "Theyll be ready to play. "That game is the biggest game to date we have. It doesnt matter our opponent, its how we have to play. Lets make sure were responsible." You can watch all the action live on TSN beginning at 7am et/4am pt. Pre-tournament exhibition games against Finland, Sweden and Switzerland showed that while the Canadian squad — led by Halifax Mooseheads star Jonathan Drouin — will be among the better teams in the 10-team event, it doesnt have the speed and offensive flash of some of the 15 Canadian teams that won gold in the past. The host team Sweden, with at least 10 players returning from a squad that won silver last year in Ufa, Russia, looks like the team to beat, especially after the 3-0 beating they put on Canada in an exhibition game last week. The Swedes are in the opposite first-round group and will play at the newer, much larger Malmo Arena. Canada has only three players back from the 2013 tournament. They include Drouin, Jake Paterson (who didnt dress for any games in Ufa as the third goalie), and defenceman Griffin Reinhart, who is suspended for the first three games this year from a slashing incident in last years semifinals. The loss in Ufa ended Canadas 14-year run of top-three finishes at the tournament officially called the IIHF world under-20 championship. This years squad is younger than most, and should be a showcase for three players not even eligible to be drafted by the NHL yet. First among them is Connor McDavid, the dazzling 16-year-old playmaker and scoring star of the Erie Otters who will not be eligible for the draft until 2015. There is also forward Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice, the younger brother of Griffin Reinhart, along with big defenceman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts. They may go one-two in the 2014 draft. Sutter has McDavid and Reinhart on the wings with centre Bo Horvat, an imposing Vancouver Canucks prospect from the London Knights. They were the only line to stay together through the teams three pre-tournament games. Reinhart turned 18 in November and is not a true "underage" junior, and Sutter uses him as he would a seasoned veteran. In exhibition play, he played the power play and on the penalty kill. In one instance when Canada was short-handed two men, he was the lone forward on the ice. "Hes an all-purpose player," said Sutter. "He just knows how to play the game. "Hes an intelligent player and his paying attention to details in all sorts of situations is very high. As a coach, youre very comfortable playing him in whatever situation that occurs." Reinhart is used to the ice time with Kootenay and was a captain on Canadian under-18 teams, so he likes the responsibility Sutter has given him. "It gives you confidence for opening night," he said. "We took some games to find ouur mentality and what well bring to the first one.dddddddddddd "We feel confident in our game right now. The focus has turned onto the first game against Germany and were looking forward to it." The exhibition games were a test for Drouin, the third overall pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning last June. Sutter blasted him for a weak showing against Sweden, even though it was Drouins first game since suffering a concussion in a league game with Halifax on Dec. 8. He was moved from left wing to centre for the final exhibition against the Swiss and played better. "Brent said some stuff," said Drouin, who will likely centre big winger Anthony Mantha and the defensively solid Taylor Leier of the Portland Winterhawks. "I know I played bad and didnt help the team. "I had to step up my game against the Swiss and I think I did. I feel better. The first game was a little rough. Its been three weeks (since he played) and its different from major junior. Its way more fast, but I think the second game was better." Another question to be settled was in goal, and Sutter believes hes found his man in Paterson of the Saginaw Spirit, who will start against Germany. The Mooseheads Zach Fucale will start the tournament as the backup, but Sutter expects both will see action in the tournament. Other lines are likely to have Nic Petan of Portland between Curtis Lazar of the Edmonton Oil Kings and Kerby Rychel of the Gueph Storm; and captain Scott Laughton of the Oshawa Generals with Frederik Gauthier of the Rimouski Oceanic and Josh Anderson of the Knights. Charles Hudon of the Chicoutimi Sagueneens may slot in the Drouin line. The defence will likely be rearranged when Griffin Reinhart returns Dec. 31 against the Americans. Sutter has been trying various combinations for a group that includes Ekblad, Matt Dumba of the Minnesota Wild, Chris Bigras of the Owen Sound Attack, McDavids Erie teammate Adam Pelech, Josh Morrissey of the Prince Albert Raiders and Derrick Pouliot of Portland. Without a high-powered attack, there has been much talk of playing "Boston Bruins hockey," which despite popular perception does not mean hammering everyone who moves, but rather working the puck up the ice in tight, five-man units and playing a controlled two-way game. "It is the makeup of our team," said Sutter, who won gold with a similar group in 2006. "We have to support each other. "We cant be a spread-out team thats playing one zone and two zones ahead. We have to be coming out of zones together and using each other. When one guy has the puck, the other four have to be options and be available for plays. And we have to be smart when were hitting the red line. We cant have turnovers." The game against Germany is a chance to see flashy forward Leon Draisaitl, who is Morrisseys teammate in Prince Albert. Draisaitl is a projected top-10 pick in 2014. They played against one another at the under-18 championship, and Morrissey said they have been joking about meeting again at the world juniors. "Hes a really skilled player," the Calgary native said. "Weve become almost best friends on our team. "Hes got phenomenal vision. I think he plays like (Anze) Kopitar. He likes (Pavel) Datsyuk a lot. All I can say is hes an unreal player." ' ' '
