Browns QB Johnny Manziel enters treatment facility

Posted: Updated:
(NBC Sports) According to multiple published reports Monday morning, Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has sought treatment for undisclosed personal issues.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer and several other reporters, Manziel “entered treatment” last Wednesday, an advisor for the quarterback said Monday, according to a statement released by Manziel's publicist.

“Johnny knows there are areas in which he needs to improve in order to be a better family member, friend and teammate and he thought the off-season was the right time to take this step,” the publicist told the Plain Dealer and other media outlets. “On behalf of Johnny and his family, we're asking for privacy until he rejoins the team in Cleveland.”

The 22-year-old Manziel appeared in just five games as a rookie, making two starts before suffering a season-ending hamstring injury.
