Add another name to the infamous Cleveland Browns quarterback jersey.

On Wednesday morning, Browns head coach Hue Jackson announced the team will be moving forward with Kevin Hogan as the starting quarterback.

Hogan, who was selected in the fifth-round of the 2016 NFL Draft, replaces rookie Deshone Kizer.

“I’ve made the decision to start Kevin this week. We’ve liked what Kevin has been able to do within our offense when he’s been in there and he will ‪start on Sunday because that’s what we feel is best for our team at this point in time,” Jackson said in a statement, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“This does not change the way we feel about DeShone going forward. He has worked extremely hard and still very much has a bright future. Right now, it’s better for him and his development to back up Kevin.”

The Browns are 0-5 to start the season.

Hogan’s first start of the season will come on Sunday, Oct. 15 on the road against the Houston Texans. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
