Coach Mike Pettine’s goal was to name a starting quarterback entering this week’s preseason game, the third for the Cleveland Browns and the typical dress rehearsal in which the first team plays into the second half.

Frustrated by poor results and uneven performance by Brian Hoyer and rookie Johnny Manziel, Pettine changed his mind Tuesday and will take more time to weigh the decision.

“We want to decision right, It’s the risk-reward thing,” Pettine said. “I don’t want to rush it.”

However, Pettine didn’t rule out naming a starter before Saturday’s preseason game against the St. Louis Rams in Cleveland.

Practice squads to expand

Practice squads will expand from eight to 10 players, effective Aug. 30, as NFL rosters are set at 53 players and practice squads can then be established the next day.

The league and the NFL Players’ Association reached agreement on the expanded practice squad roster for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
