Johnny Manziel could make another start for the Cleveland Browns.

One day after the quarterback notched his first career NFL win, Browns head coach said Manziel would work with the starters until Josh McCown’s status is clarified. As of Monday, Pettine said, McCown was still in the league concussion protocol. He left the field Week 1 with a head injury.

Manziel has an interception and lost two fumbles in two games this season and Pettine said the Browns need him to “take care of the football” moving forward.

Manziel is averaging 9.1 yards per pass attempt with three TD passes.

Last season, the Browns averaged 7.3 yards per pass attempt with 12 touchdowns using three quarterbacks — Brian Hoyer, Connor Shaw and Manziel.
