Johnny Manziel had a roadside incident with girlfriend Colleen Crowley that led to police being called by a bystander and the Browns quarterback back in the headlines. According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Browns had been hoping that the two would split up for some time now.

There have been concerns about the sometimes turbulent nature of that relationship within the Browns hierarchy, sources said, and some have been hoping there would be separation for quite some time. Crowley is a college student who has been living with Manziel this season. Manziel was not disciplined by the team and has remained McCown’s primary backup, dressing for games as he normally would.

La Canfora also reported that Manziel’s behavior began to regress when he was replaced by Josh McCown as the team’s starter after playing well in his one week of action.
