Report: Browns Lied About Johnny Manziel’s Concussion

Cleveland Browns v Seattle Seahawks

Remember during Week 17 of the NFL season, when Johnny Manziel was said to be dealing with a concussion and was in the league’s concussion protocol?  Well guess what?  It was all a cover-up by the Cleveland Browns after Johnny Manziel showed up to Wednesday’s practice drunk.

According to the NFL Network’s Michael Silver, a Browns player told him that Manziel was supposed to start that week’s game, but after showing up drunk to Wednesday’s practice, the team lied and said he was in the NFL’s concussion protocol.  He would go on to miss his treatment session that Sunday after partying in Vegas the night before his team’s final game of the season.

After using a 2014 first-round pick on the troubled quarterback, the Browns are now expected to cut Manziel in March.
