Browns rookie QB Johnny Manziel took first snap with starters in team drills Monday.
Rein in the enthusiasm, people, rein it in. Of course he's getting time with the first team, but everyone knows that Brian Hoyer will open the season as the Browns starting quarterback. Forget this early-August hype. It doesn't mean anything. As the back-up and given Hoyer's knee issue last year, of course Manziel needs to familiarize himself with the first team. Cleveland may be a bad team, but they're not stupid. Don't blow this up into more than it should be. You'll regret it in your draft when you take Manziel far higher than he should be taken.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Joffrey Lauvergne practiced in full Thursday.
Lauvergne has missed the last 12 games due to a back injury but was back practicing in full on Thursday. It's a great sign for the second year pro who played well when he was healthy. He started the three games he played so we will wait and see if that's what Denver has in store for him when he returns to the lineup. Analysis: James Grande
Johnny Manziel was demoted because he lied about were he was.
When video surfaced of Manziel out partying, you just knew that head coach Mike Pettine had enough of this far-too scrutinized situation. Manziel has been a veritable nightmare for the coaches and continues to show a complete lack of maturity. Josh McCown will get the start in Week 12 and, barring injury, is likely the full-time starter moving forward. Analysis: Howard Bender
