Dallas police say they could conclude their domestic violence investigation of Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel by late next week.

The Dallas Morning News reports that police have reviewed medical records provided by Manziel's ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, who told police Manziel hit her and dragged her into a car during a late January incident.

Manziel has not been charged, but a judge has issued Crowley a protection order against him.

Police have not interviewed Manziel, but spoke to other several witnesses. Maj. Midge Boyle told the newspaper police want to have their strongest case against Manziel before speaking to him.

A Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M, Manziel has had several incidents of trouble in the NFL. The Browns have indicated they will release him next month.
