Manziel’s elbow still issue, not throwing at Browns practice
BEREA, Ohio– Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is not throwing again in practice as he continues to be bothered by a sore right elbow.
Manziel did not throw a pass during the portion of Wednesday’s workout open to reporters. He tossed a few passes with his left hand and only handed the ball off in other drills.
Manziel’s practice was cut short Sunday because his elbow flared up and he was rested Monday. The second-year QB has been slowed by elbow soreness for at least two weeks.
“We are going to err on the side of caution. We will probably make a decision later today, meet with (head athletic trainer) Joe (Sheehan) and the (doctors) and get a feel for what is the next course of action at this point. Do we shut him down for the rest of the week? We will make that decision later today whether to add an extra arm. Those are all things after this I am going to head up and hash through that,” said Coach Mike Pettine.
Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor returned in pads after being sidelined by a hamstring injury. The former quarterback is running out of time to make Cleveland’s roster.
“Hopefully we can get him out there tomorrow and if he makes it through tomorrow he should be good to go for Saturday,” Pettine said.
