WATCH: Johnny Manziel shares his thoughts on Browns QB situation

We haven't heard from Johnny Manziel in a while and that's probably a good thing. But with the Browns losing Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown to injuries in consecutive weeks, it was only a matter of time before someone (OK, TMZ) tracked Manziel down to get his thoughts on Cleveland's quarterback situation -- and whether he might be getting a phone call anytime soon.

"I doubt that'll happen," Manziel said Monday night outside Mr Chow in Beverly Hills, though he added, "I wish them the best."

(Related: The Browns are going to need a lot more than well wishes to save a season that already appears lost after just two games.)

In the 45-second interview Manziel was also asked about Colin Kaepernick's decision to protest during the national anthem.

"I believe Colin Kaepernick is standing up for what he believes in and he has a right to do that so," he said.

And with that, Manziel drove off into the night, perhaps headed home to study. He told TMZ he is "glad to be back in school" and that the classes "are going well."
