Report: Johnny Manziel to return as Cleveland Browns starter

A report suggests that Johnny Manziel will return as starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns after being dropped for his off-the-field behaviour.

The Cleveland Browns will reportedly start Johnny Manziel at quarterback for their next match against the San Francisco 49ers.

The 23-year-old was benched for his antics off the field during his team's bye week when he was caught partying, while it was also suggested that he lied to the club about the incident.

Josh McCown replaced Manziel in the lineup, but was ruled out for the season with a fractured collarbone and Austin Davis struggled in his place in the Browns' 37-3 defeat to the Cincinnati Bengals.

As a result, Cleveland will now turn back to Manziel to lead them in their last four matches of the campaign, reports NFL Network.

Manziel has thrown for 933 yards and five touchdowns to two interceptions in six matches this season.
