Kizer takes 'step' in Browns' QB clash

Kizer takes 'step' in Browns' QB clash

"I'm still working through the tape, working through practice", Jackson said. He isn't rushing to anything, and he doesn't have to; the Browns don't play another game until they host the Giants on August 21 in a Monday Night Football game. "It is the raising of a quarterback".

"He threw the ball down the field, made some plays with his arm, made some plays with his legs and stood in the pocket with poise", Jackson said. You just don't make decisions to make them. I think there are some where our receivers could have gotten open a little bit better.

"I think it's way too early to talk about that", Jackson said, per ESPN.com's Tony Grossi.

It makes sense for Hue Jackson to give Kizer some work with the first-team offense as he won't know how great the rookie can or can't be unless he plays with the top talent on the team.

Kizer may have taken the lead in the battle with veterans Brock Osweiler and Cody Kessler. Jackson is in no rush to name a starter for that nationally televised game and indicated he may wait several more days before deciding who takes the field first. "When it's the right time to make the decision that we feel is right to say, 'This is the quarterback of the Cleveland Browns for 2017, ' then we'll make that decision".

"We are going to keep working at this thing, and we are going to continue to coach all of these guys to get better", he said. "Let's see it for what it was: The guy made some plays at the end to give us a chance to win, but there's still things he needs to do better". Osweiler started against the Saints and was underwhelming, going 6-for-14 for 42 yards and a 50.3 rating.

"I am sure he is in the locker room excited, but he will be the first to tell you, there are so many other things to clean up. I mean, I don't feel very comfortable", Jackson said.

It wasn't all good for the No. 52 pick out of Notre Dame. He said Kizer sometimes holds the ball too long while trying to read the defense.

"If that's the decision that we make, I wouldn't have any hesitation", Jackson said.
