CLEVELAND — Finally, at long last, the Browns have a date to name their quarterback. Decision day is Tuesday for Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel.

That’s when Browns Coach Mike Pettine aims to announce his starter for Cleveland’s Sept. 7 opener at Pittsburgh. His choice could be influenced by how the quarterbacks play in Monday night’s nationally televised exhibition at Washington.

“Something unforeseen could come up, but we’re hopeful because I do want to see if I can cut the quarterback questions down by about 90 percent after next week,” said Pettine, a first-year coach who for months has faced questions about his quarterbacks. “The chemistry, the continuity, it’s important to establish that.”

On Thursday, Pettine said Hoyer will start against Washington on Monday night, with Manziel getting snaps with the first-team offense. Pettine isn’t sure how he’ll divide their time and will see how the game unfolds before determining when each is on the field.

His focus is making sure the “reps are close to equal.”

Pettine also made it clear no decision has been made.

“All of our options are still on the table,” he said.

Hoyer started Cleveland’s preseason opener at Detroit, with Manziel playing exclusively with the backups.

BEARS: Tight end Zach Miller was placed on season-ending injured reserve because of a foot injury he suffered in Thursday’s 20-19 preseason victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Miller, a former tight end for Jacksonville, was trying to make the team, most likely as a backup.

JAGUARS: Offensive right tackle Austin Pasztor broke his hand in Thursday’s loss at Chicago and will be sidelined at least a month.

JETS: Rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders was involved in a single-car accident early Friday and hospitalized.

There was no immediate word on Saunders’ condition, but the Jets say he won’t travel with the team for their preseason game at Cincinnati on Saturday night.

CHIEFS: Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was suspended for the season opener against Tennessee for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.
