Johnny Manziel out for the preseason

Johnny Manziel is out for the presason with a sore right elbow. The Browns quarterback got injured previously. Josh McCown will continue to start. "You can't get those reps back," Browns coach Mike Pettine said. "He'll lose out on all that real-game experience, but we're very pleased with where he is currently. If we truly felt like, 'Hey, he needs to get out there and get these reps,' then this is something we could have worked through. "But we just felt like heading into the season, it's a long year, let's go ahead and shut him down and rest and make sure it's 100 percent once we head to New York [for the opener]. I think he's upset that he's not out there. He's upset it got to this point." aaron.wilson@chron.com twitter.com/AaronWilson_NFL
