Browns’ Manziel not throwing because of sore elbow

BEREA, Ohio (AP) – Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is not throwing during practice because of a sore right elbow that has bothered him for two weeks.

Manziel ended his workout early on Sunday. He is dressed and on the field Monday, but he has only handed off the ball and watched from the side as quarterbacks Josh McCown and Thad Lewis throw.

Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo says he’s not concerned about Manziel’s elbow injury being a long-term condition and chalks up the issue to “wear and tear.” DeFilippo says Manziel’s throwing mechanics may have contributed to the soreness.

Browns coach Mike Pettine is expected to provide an update following practice.

Manziel has had a solid training camp, and DeFilippo says the quarterback is a “new guy” following a turbulent rookie season.
