Johnny Manziel: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Manziel (elbow soreness) will sit out the Browns' final two preseason games, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per the report, the Browns are shutting down Manziel in the hopes of getting him 100 percent healthy sooner rather than later. Once that occurs, Manziel is slated to work behind starter Josh McCown. For now though, Thad Lewis and Pat Devlin are the team's healthy backup signal-callers.
Manziel will be shut down due to lingering elbow soreness, Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reports. "I just see it as a minor setback," head coach Mike Pettine said. "If this was something he'd never experienced before and the MRI showed something, I'd be a lot more concerned. But this being something he's dealt with before, I'm confident if he's shut down for just a little bit longer, that it'll all come back."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Pettine revealed Wednesday that Manziel has dealt with elbow soreness since high school, but after taking two days off, the discomfort had yet to dwindle. A subsequent MRI revealed no structural damage, but the Browns will nonetheless shelve the second-year quarterback for the time being. As a result, expect Manziel to miss Saturday's preseason game at Tampa Bay, which will reduce the Browns to two healthy quarterbacks (Josh McCown and Thaddeus Lewis).
Manziel's recent elbow soreness is believed to stem from his 3/4 throwing release, Cleveland.com reports.

2014

Manziel will start the season behind Brian Hoyer, but we suspect that the arrangement will be a temporary one. In any case, Manziel would be a much more exciting fantasy prospect if it weren't for Josh Gordon's suspension, but that development leaves Manziel with the possibility of 5-foot-7 Andrew Hawkins as his most productive receiver. There won't be many passing touchdowns in Cleveland this year if that remains the case, but Manziel should put up big rushing numbers whenever he's on the field. He ran for 30 rushing touchdowns in 26 games at Texas A&M, and he ought to find room to run on bootleg plays in offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's run-heavy offense.
