Johnny Manziel Issues Statement After Being Hospitalized

56

Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel was reportedly hospitalized on Monday for a “reaction” to prescription medication.

According to TMZ Sports, Manziel was admitted to a hospital in Humble, Texas. He was in the area to attend the JMBLYA concert with friends after playing in a golf tournament hosted by friend and former Texas A&M teammate, and current Tampa Bay Bucs wide receiver, Mike Evans. 

Manziel has since posted a message on Instagram, explaining that he had a reaction due to an increased dosage in Lithium.

During an interview with Good Morning America that aired back in February, Manziel admitted to being diagnosed with bipolar disorder “about a year ago” and says he has been taking the proper medication. The 25-year old QB recently participated in the developmental Spring League and has a standing fer from the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
