Johnny Manziel’s time in rehab reportedly has come to an end after more than two months.
The Cleveland Browns quarterback was released from a treatment center Saturday, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, citing multiple sources. Manziel entered the private facility in Ohio on Jan. 28, taking the step in order “to be a better family member, friend and teammate,” Manziel’s advisor Brad Beckworth said in early February.
It remains unclear what Manziel was getting treatment for, but according to Fowler, the facility he checked into “specializes in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.”
Fowler reports the Browns expect Manziel to attend offseason workouts, which begin April 20. The 22-year-old will battle for the starting job in 2015 alongside veteran Josh McCown.
“When (Manziel) is back, it will be full speed ahead for him,” Browns coach Mike Pettine said, per ESPN.com. “I think he’s very anxious at this point. We’ll be prepared as we will with every other player. When they get back to town, we’re going to coach the heck out of them.”
