Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer had his torn ACL repaired at the Cleveland Clinic on Friday. Signed through next season, Hoyer will need at least nine to 12 months to recover from the surgery, which could put him back in time for the start of the season. The team said the surgery was a success and coach Rob Chudzinski said he's hopeful Hoyer will be back in the spring which would be seven or eight months from the date of surgery. " will make it make,'' said Chudzinski a day after Hoyer injured the knee against the Bills Oct. 3. "He’s that type of guy. I reassured him that as well. "My understanding is everything went well with the surgery. Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III returned in eight months, but he's the exception to the 12-month rule, and hasn't really been himself this season.
