CLEVELAND (AP) - Quarterback Brandon Weeden replaced injured starter Brian Hoyer and rallied the Cleveland Browns to a 37-24 win Thursday night over the Buffalo Bills, who also lost starting rookie quarterback EJ Manuel with a knee injury.

Weeden threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Josh Gordon in the third quarter as the Browns (3-2) won their third straight and temporarily moved into sole possession of first place in the AFC North.

Safety T.J. Ward intercepted rookie Jeff Tuel's pass and returned it 44 yards for a TD with 1:44 left to end any comeback hopes for the Bills (2-3).

Hoyer sustained a potentially serious right knee injury on a scramble in the first quarter, and Manuel was forced out after taking a helmet to his right knee on a run in the third. Neither returned and their injuries could impact both teams' seasons.

MOUNT PLEASANT, MI (AP) - Central Michigan says N.C. State is buying out the finale of a three-game football series between the schools, meaning next year's game in Mount Pleasant won't be happening.

The teams played at N.C. State this year and in 2011. They were supposed to play at CMU next season.

CMU says N.C. State has agreed to pay $350,000 for ending the series.

CMU athletic director Dave Heeke says he's disappointed that N.C. State won't be making the trip next year, but he is hoping to find a quality opponent to fill out the 2014 nonconference schedule.

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) - Panthers coach Ron Rivera says he expects defensive end Greg Hardy to play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals despite missing the last two days of practice with an illness.

Rivera says Hardy met with the doctors on Thursday and "They just want him to get a little bit of rest" before returning to practice on Friday.

Hardy has developed into a key cog in Carolina's 10th-ranked defense.

The flamboyant fourth-year defensive end sacked Eli Manning three times and had eight tackles in a dominating performance against the New York Giants in week three. Hardy earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for his role in Carolina's 38-0 win.

He has another chance at a big game Sunday against Cardinals left tackle Bradley Sowell, who'll make his first NFL start.
