Browns planning for Week 2 with Johnny Manziel as starter

During Week 1 of the NFL regular season, Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown suffered a head injury that put a quick end to his season debut. As a result, none other than Johnny Manziel was called up into the starting lineup.

Manziel started off strong, but the wheels quickly fell off as he seemingly fumbled every time he was hit.

However, thanks to the fact that McCown has to go through the league’s concussion protocol, the Browns will move forward with Johnny Manziel as the planned starter for their Week 2 meeting with the Tennessee Titans.

While Manziel is moving forward as the planned starter, he is also shaken up.

“There were just a few bites here and there, just a little bit of tightness,” Manziel said, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. “But other than that, for the majority, to go all the way through the game, it really didn’t bother me that much.”

If McCown is out for Week 2, Austin Davis will serve as Manziel’s backup.

The Browns should learn whether McCown will be able to go on Sunday, until then Cleveland will be planning to start Johnny Football.
