Browns undecided if Johnny Manziel will be active for Ravens
BEREA, Ohio— Browns coach Mike Pettine said he hasn’t decided if Johnny Manziel will be active on Monday night against Baltimore.
Manziel was demoted from starter to third string this week when a video surfaced of him partying during Cleveland’s bye week in Austin, Texas.
Manziel had promised Pettine and other coaches he would behave during the time off, and Pettine said the second-year quarterback violated “trust and accountability” with his actions.
Pettine refused to provide more details Friday.
Manziel had been named Cleveland’s starter for the final six games before his off-field behavior got him benched. He has not spoken to reporters since his benching.
Offensive coordinator John DeFilippo left open the possibility that Manziel will play again this season.
Josh McCown, who missed Cleveland’s past two games with injured ribs, will start against the Ravens.
