A former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel was recently hospitalized, according to Fox News. Manziel was hospitalized on Monday in Texas after experiencing a bad reaction to some prescription medication.
The 25-year-old quarterback was quickly transported to a hospital in Humble to be examined. The former Cleveland Browns quarterback was ready to attend the JMBLYA festival with some friends. Earlier that day, he had played in a golf tournament, according to sources.
But things quickly took a turn for the worse. He began to have a bad reaction to an adjustment in his prescription, claims TMZ.
"Thank you for your concern and kind messages. Unfortunately, I had a reaction to an increased dosage in Lithium which I take for my bipolar disorder. It was a scary moment and I'm especially grateful for the staff at the hospital and all that they've done in the last 24 hours," he wrote in regard to his hospitalization.
The quarterback has been working very hard to make a comeback in the NFL in the aftermath of a brief stint in the league. Manziel, a Heisman Trophy winner, was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2014 and then released in 2016. Currently, he is a free agent.
During his career with the NFL, the quarterback often did not meet expectations and was often spotted partying. In fact, in 2015, he was spotted at rehab and was pulled over by police while in an argument with his girlfriend.
