The good news keeps coming today for Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. After the team announced earlier today that Manziel would be the starting QB for the remainder of the 2015 season, the NFL has announced that the second-year signal-caller won’t face any discipline from the league for an October 12th incident that involved a public altercation with girlfriend Colleen Crowley.
“Consistent with the procedures of the league’s Personal Conduct Policy, we have examined the available evidence regarding the recent incident involving Johnny Manziel,” the NFL announced in a statement. “Our investigation included a thorough review of information from law enforcement and our own interviews with multiple individuals, including the two involved in the incident.
“Based on the information gathered, we have concluded that there is an insufficient basis on which to take disciplinary action. In all cases of this nature, under the Personal Conduct Policy our concern goes well beyond the issue of discipline, and we have made comprehensive professional resources available on a confidential basis.”
The decision from the NFL opens the door for Manziel to start the rest of the Browns’ games without having to worry about a looming suspension. The team has Week 11 off, and will play its next game on Monday, November 30th at home against the Ravens.
