Johnny Manziel injury – Browns quarterback leaves game with hamstring injury
Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has been in hot water in the last week due to an incident that involved him being late to a hamstring treatment on Saturday.
There were reports that Manziel threw a party on Friday night, and some of his teammates allegedly showed up to this. Wide receiver Josh Gordon was one of the rumored players as he was suspended for missing a team walkthrough on Saturday.
The quarterback said that the rumors about him throwing a party are false, but he admitted that he went out that night and needs to change his actions and back them up with hard work in the offseason.
The rookie will look to shed the bust label that is undoubtedly hovering over him after his disappointing starting debut. He will also hope to prove that he can be the franchise quarterback that the Browns expected when they drafted him in the first round.
NFL on ESPN provided the news of this latest Manziel story on Twitter.
