BEREA, Ohio -- The Browns arent worried about Johnny Manziel running out of bounds off the field. Lenny Dykstra Jersey . Or floating on pool rafts. After a weekend of partying in Texas, where he was photographed floating on an inflatable swan while drinking champagne in a nightclub pool, Manziel was on the field Tuesday as the Browns opened a mandatory three-day minicamp. The team is not making their popular Heisman Trophy-winning rookie quarterback -- or starter Brian Hoyer -- available to the media this week. Manziel has left Cleveland each of the past three weekends, first taking a trip to Las Vegas, then to Los Angeles for a seminar with other rookies and then to his home state, where in addition to having some fun, he got drafted by the San Diego Padres and attended Game 2 of the NBA finals in San Antonio, sitting near Miamis bench while wearing a retro Cavaliers cap. Following practice, Browns first-year coach Mike Pettine said hes not worried about how his young QB spends his free time. "Im not concerned," Pettine said. "I would become concerned if it was something criminal and I would be concerned if it affected his job. Theres a lot of our guys, if when they leave here if they were followed around, youd get some very similar pictures. I dont know about an inflatable swan, but youd still get some pictures." Manziel has said he intends to keep living his life to the fullest, and Pettine doesnt feel the need to monitor the 21-year-olds every move. "The philosophy here is that were not going to micro-manage the guys," Pettine said. "I was involved in an event this weekend, and if there were some cameras at certain times it probably wouldnt have been the most flattering. It was a group of coaches out and we had a good time, but we were responsible. When it becomes irresponsible or it becomes part of breaking the law or its something we feel is a potential problem, well step in." Manziel is currently listed as Clevelands backup behind Hoyer. The two will compete during training camp next month, when each pass will be dissected. The dueling QBS are already under scrutiny. During Tuesdays workout, Manziel took snaps with Clevelands first-team offence as Hoyer continues to be limited as a precaution while recovering from off-season knee surgery. When he was on the field, Hoyer showed his ability to read the defence and release the ball more quickly than Manziel, who is still learning the nuances of offensive co-ordinator Kyle Shanahans system and adjusting to the speedier pro game. Thats not to say Manziel didnt show progress. "Hes getting more comfortable in the huddle, calling the plays," Pettine said. "I think hes got a very nice touch with the deep ball. Weve added some of the zone-read stuff that Kyles run with RG3 in Washington and hes done a nice job handling that. He makes improvement every day." As for Manziels extra-curricular activities, his teammates seem to have his back. Safety Donte Whitner was asked if theres a need to tell Johnny Football to tone down his act. "Yeah, but I dont think hes out of hand with it," Whitner said. "If hes not out every weekend, hes just a young guy. So going to Vegas, I probably wouldve been there with Johnny too." Wide receiver Andrew Hawkins hasnt seen any reason to think Manziel isnt taking his job seriously. "I dont know what Johnny does on the weekends. But its none of my business," he said. "Hes out here working his butt off. Im not keeping tabs on where he goes Friday through Sunday. Johnny works hard, and thats all anybody cares about." Pettine understands theres a bright spotlight on Manziel, who seems to relish the hype. In being so public with his actions, Manziel could be placing himself in precarious situations, but Pettine is confident the former Texas A&M star can handle it. "I think its something hes used to," Pettine said. "I think that he understands that that (publicity) comes with the territory, but I also think hes a young man that he doesnt want his lifestyle or how he lives it to be affected by social media. That hes not going to (say) Hey, Im not leaving my house. "I dont think he wants to be that way and it just goes back to were not going to micromanage him until we feel that it is an issue, and if its not affecting him on the field, then I dont think that its anything we need to address at this point." NOTES: Pro Bowl WR Josh Gordon continues to practice as the team awaits word on a possible league suspension. ... LT Joe Thomas was full-go after being limited in recent OTAs. ... Pettine confirmed rookie LG Joel Bitonio injured his ankle but said he is expected to be ready for training camp. Gary Carter Jersey . -- The Orlando Magic have made no secret that the future of their franchise will depend on how well they can develop their young players. Steven Matz Jersey .com) - Klay Thompson is quickly proving he is worth every penny of his recently signed four-year contract extension. http://www.metsbaseballauthentic.com/keith-hernandez-mets-jersey/ .com) - Its fair to call Mike McCarthy one of the best coaches in the NFL but its also more than objective to point out that the veteran mentor bookended the Green Bay Packers season with two, truly awful game plans in Seattle.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - The starting job at running back isnt the only thing Montee Ball lost during his month on the sideline recovering from a torn right groin.The Denver Broncos second-year pro said he eliminated sweets and cut down on carbs and fried foods during his rehab because at 224 pounds, he wasnt hitting the holes fast enough.So, he dropped a dozen pounds and now tips the scales at right around the weight he was at Wisconsin and two pounds lighter than he was at the NFL combine in 2013.Today I felt great out there, Ball said Wednesday following his first practice since he was hurt Oct. 5. I felt a lot more elusive. I felt a lot more agile. And this is where I should have been at the beginning of the year.Ball said he realizes Ronnie Hillman deserves to remain the starter — for now — after leapfrogging him during his absence because the running game has been a lot better since hes been in there.He did a great job of taking that job from me, Ball said. He should start now because he did a great job. But Im going to most definitely be working for that spot again.Hillman, whos quicker and more decisive at the line of scrimmage, has rushed 363 yards and three TDs while averaging 4.3 yards a carry also catching 17 passes for 121 yards and a score in Balls absence, giving Denver a legitimate ground game to go with Peyton Mannings passing prowess.When he got hurt, Ball was averaging 3.1 yards a carry, a significant drop-off from the 4.7 he averaged as a rookie.During his time off — which followed several missed practices in August after undergoing an emergency appendectomy, Ball said he watched film and realized he was pitter-pattering too much at the line of scrimmage.It wasnt entirely his fault: Behind a reconfigured offensive line thats had its share of troubles, Broncos backs have seen at least three carries go for no gain or negative yardage in seven of their eight games so far. Jose Reyes Jersey. Defenders have consistently found the gaps between centre Manny Ramirez and guards Orlando Franklin, whos still adjusting to his switch from tackle, and Louis Vasquez, who isnt playing at his Pro Bowl level of a year ago because of nagging back and ribs injuries.Ball took it on himself, however, to do what he could during his time off to get better prepared for a stretch run like he had last year.It was kind of my plan, so I could move better, hit the holes faster, he said. I was 224 when the injury happened. Im 212 now and I most definitely love it. This is where I was at in college, and I feel a lot more comfortable at this weight.Ball played at 220 pounds last year.So, this is the lightest Ive ever been in the NFL and Im loving it, Ball said. I havent been hitting the holes fast. Ive been doing too much second-guessing.Ball said he felt fine after Wednesdays workout and ice tub soak. He said he no longer is in any pain and hopes to return Sunday when the Broncos (6-2) visit the Oakland Raiders (0-8).Ball got hurt when he accidentally did the splits while chipping a defender before going out on his route in a game against Arizona. But he said his right groin was actually sore since the start of the season.I wasnt telling anybody about it. I was just trying to work through it on my own, Ball said.Tearing the groin, Ball said, was a blessing in disguise because Im learning how to be a pro and learning better ways to take care of my body.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
