Browns' Manziel cuts practice short due to sore right elbow

BEREA, Ohio (AP) Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel cut his practice short Sunday after experiencing soreness in his right elbow and could be sidelined for a few days.

Manziel has been bothered by a sore elbow for the past two weeks. After completing a pass Sunday, Manziel pointed toward his elbow. Browns coach Mike Pettine said Manziel may not practice Monday. The team has a scheduled day off on Tuesday.

The second-year QB sat out practice on Aug. 11 with a sore elbow, but played two nights later in an exhibition.

Pettine doesn't believe Manziel's elbow issue will be ''a long-term thing.'' He will continue to get feedback from trainer Joe Sheehan.

Manziel threw a touchdown pass in Thursday's loss to Buffalo and has had an impressive training camp. He's listed as the No. 2 quarterback behind Josh McCown, who is expected to start the season opener.
