UPDATE: Per a report from NFL.com, Johnny Manziel, known by his fans as Johnny Football, could be benched thanks to the contents of the following video clip. Browns head coach Mike Pettine, speaking about Manziel’s potential fate as the starting quarterback, said today “To whom much is given, much is expected.” Pettine is expected to further address the TMZ clip tomorrow, once he and his staff have had ample time to review it.
ORIGINAL STORY: Sipping on Dom Perignon for no reason.

According to the report, Manziel was out both Thursday and Friday nights in Austin, TX. TMZ shared a short clip of Manziel holding a bottle of Dom Perignon in his right hand:

Manziel was recently named the starting quarterback for the Browns, but has very little margin for error considering his tumultuous relationship with the organization, which includes a stint in a rehab facility, and a domestic incident with his current girlfriend.
Johnny just can’t be good.
