Johnny Manziel practiced exclusively with the Cleveland Browns' first-team offense Monday, the first time he's received any work with the starting unit all training camp.
Browns coach Mike Pettine said Manziel's time with the starters was "all part of the plan," and that it doesn't signify Manziel's ascension in his competition with fellow quarterback Brian Hoyer, according to cleveland.com.
While Pettine has said the two quarterbacks would be splitting reps, Hoyer began training camp by taking all the snaps with the first-team offense. The Browns were reportedly dissatisfied with Manziel's offseason partying.
The Browns open their preseason Saturday against the Lions in Detroit.
