Johnny Manziel reportedly wore a disguise in his weekend trip to Las Vegas

Johnny Manziel reportedly changed his outfit and went by a fake name in his recent trip to Las Vegas.

CLEVELAND-- The Johnny Manziel saga continues in Cleveland and its latest chapter may be the strangest yet. 

After multiple reports surfaced that Manziel was in Las Vegas this weekend, there's a further report that seems to confirm his whereabouts. 

According to ESPN Las Vegas, Manziel was indeed in Vegas this weekend, but wasn't looking like himself. 

Rather, the Browns quarterback was seen sporting a blonde wig, a fake mustache and glasses, while referring to himself as "Billy." 

In the article, sources indicate that Manziel was seen at a Vegas nightclub dining with friends and enjoying the evening, all the while wearing his wig. 

Apparently, Manziel's identity was revealed when he asked for his bill at the end of the evening to be comped to his room.

Unfortunatlely for him, the club did not permit this to happen and Manziel used his credit card to pay, signing the name on the card. 

Though multiple reports have indicated that Manziel was in Vegas, the report by ESPN Las Vegas was the first to detail Manziel as in disguise. 

This report was later confirmed by Will Burge of WTAM 1100, who also reported that there is a video of Manziel partying while wearing the disguise.

That video is yet to be released, but according to Burge, it will be soon, as TMZ has already been in negotiations to obtain the footage.

Manziel posted a photo to his Instagram on Saturday night, after reports surfaced of his location, in which he and his dog were laying on a rug. The location of the photo on Instagram said Avon, Ohio, but the location feature on Instagram can be changed to essentially any place on the planet. 

On Sunday night, after firing Cleveland GM Ray Farmer and HC Mike Pettine, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam confirmed that Manziel missed a mandatory appointment on Sunday morning at the team's facility in Berea, as part of his concussion protocol.

A report by Peter King of Sports Illustrated and Monday Morning Quarterback was the initial source for the news that Manziel missed the appointment and in that report, King also said the Browns were wanting to "move on" from the quarterback after this latest incident. 

The quarterback was not in attendance for Sunday's game at FirstEnergy Stadium, but he was not required to by the Browns or the league's concussion protocol. 

On Monday, wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, who himself was in the concussion protocol for a large portion of the season, said that players in the protocol can't be on the sidelines and watch the game from a booth. For that reason, Hawkins said Manziel's attendance at the game wasn't all that important. 

Manziel was confirmed to be at the team's facility on Monday for season-ending meetings by defensive lineman Danny Shelton and Joel Bitonio, but neither seemed to have discussed the reports with him. 

The Browns have the number two selection in the 2016 NFL Draft-- a fact that Jimmy Haslam pointed out when asked about the team's quarterback situation on Sunday night.
