Marvin Lewis calls Johnny Manziel a midget, apologizes

Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis called Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel a midget and later apologized for his comment.

During his radio show, Lewis said:"You gotta go defend the offense. You don't defend the player, particularly a midget."

Lewis angered people because of his word choice.

Lewis issued an apology later.

"I apologize to Johnny, the Browns and all the fans in Cleveland," Lewis said. "It was just a poor remark. I really didn't mean anything by it."
