The partying QB for the Cleveland Browns may be out of rehab, but he isn’t out of the Browns’ doghouse yet.
Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has reportedly finished his time in rehab for drug and alcohol treatment.
According to ProFootballTalk and ESPN insiders, the former Texas A&M Heisman Trophy QB, who voluntarily entered the rehab program in late-January, has completed his program but there is no wordd yet as to when (or if) he will report to the Browns once workouts open in less than two weeks.
Johnny Manziel has been released from a drug and alcohol treatment facility, multiple sources told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

The Browns drafted Manziel 22nd overall in the 2014 NFL draft, but gave the starting job to QB Brian Hoyer. The Browns would start the season 7-4 before head coach Mike Pettine pulled Hoyer after losing two straight games and giving the reins to Manziel. But Manziel proved utterly incapable of holding down the job, losing both of his first two starts for the Browns and recording a passer rating of 29.6 – one of the worst in NFL history – while going 13 of 26 for 112 yards, no TDs and 2 INTs.
In addition to his failures on the field, Manziel got into trouble several times off the field. He was allegedly involved in a brawl in Cleveland and reportedly missed practice because of his late-night partying before being placed on season-ending injured reserve.
The Browns would go on to finish the season 7-9.
