Report: Johnny Manziel expected to start this week
Browns coach Mike Pettine has kept his quarterback decision this week to himself, but word has gotten out.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Johnny Manziel is expected to start this week in place of Josh McCown.
McCown has been limited in practice this week with his rib injury, and it might be as simple as his not being well enough to play effectively.
But with the Browns heading nowhere, there’s also a reasonable temptation to see if Manziel can play or not, or whether his height will be the thing that holds him back.
