The Cleveland Browns would have been praying for an preseason devoid of any controversy heading in to the 2015 season.

But when you have Johnny Manziel making his return from a stint in rehab and trying to become starting quarterback, Josh Gordon getting suspended for the second season in a row, and 2014 first rounder Justin Gilbert struggling to make the 53-man roster, media coverage was always going to be there.

However, the Browns finally have a bit of good news, with the aforementioned Manziel returning to training ahead of the start of the regular season.

Here's Johnny

After suffering an elbow injury that had a few fair people in the National Football League concerned for Manziel's future, the mobile quarterback has returned to practice and is back throwing the ball around.

The Browns shut Manziel down for two weeks because of elbow tendinitis, and had him throwing smaller, lighter things to build back up to full strength. But he was back Monday, and said he was feeling good enough to back up Josh McCown this week.

“No [doubt], not in my mind,” Manziel said, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “Not in anyone else’s either.”

The Browns signed quarterback Austin Davis in case Manziel’s not ready, but Browns head coach Mike Pettine said he didn’t envision that needing to be the case.

“I can safely say that [Manziel’s] on track, barring a setback,” Pettine said. “Given still the uncertainty, without going into detail, we feel good about where Johnny is.”

Manziel will almost certainly see the field this season, Josh McCown simply isn't a good enough starting QB, and hopefully the former Heisman winner finally shows us his talent.
