The Dallas Police Department obtained medical records for Colleen Crowley this week as part of the criminal investigation into whether Johnny Manziel assaulted her, according to ESPN.com’s Pat McManamon. Crowley filed a complaint weeks ago alleging that the Browns quarterback assaulted her and ruptured her eardrum. In Texas, causing serious injury could be considered aggravated assault, which is a felony. According to a source, as of one week ago, Crowley could not hear out of her left ear.
Manziel won’t be a member of the Browns much longer as the team is expected to cut him in March. Earlier today, the Browns held an introductory press conference for their new coaches and those coaches fielded questions on players who will be a part of the club in 2016. Here’s a look at some of the highlights:
- Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton said that he left the Titans to be with new coach Hue Jackson and also said that he fell in love with Cleveland and its fans, as Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal tweets. If not for that, Horton says he could have stayed in Tennessee.
- Horton said the Browns have to give outside linebacker Paul Kruger help on the opposite side (Twitter link via Ulrich).
- Browns special teams coordinator Chris Tabor made it clear that the team wants wide receiver Travis Benjamin and safety Johnson Bademosi back, as Ulrich tweets.
- Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com (on Twitter) “wouldn’t be surprised” if the Browns lock Benjamin up to a new deal very soon. Benjamin said in December that was about 75% or 80% of the way to reaching a new deal with the Browns.
- Browns associate head coach (offense) Pep Hamilton said the staff hasn’t discussed possibility of having wide receiver Josh Gordon on the team next season, Ulrich tweets.
