The medical records of Johnny Manziel's ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, have been obtained by the Dallas Police Department after it opened an investigation into the quarterback's alleged assault, according to a Thursday report by ESPN.com's Pat McManamon.

Scott Gordon of NBC5 in Dallas relayed a statement from Crowley's lawyer, Kathy Kinser, that said her client suffered a ruptured eardrum in her left ear as a result of Manziel's alleged actions.  

"They expect [her ear] to heal but it'll take a while," Crowley's attorney said, per Gordon.

Citing a source, McManamon reported Crowley still couldn't hear out of her ear as recently as a week ago. 

According to McManamon, the source said "medical records could verify the injury and could affect any charges that might be filed."   

Since details of the alleged incident emerged, Crowley has received a protective order from a judge ordering Manziel to stay away from his ex-girlfriend for two years, according to WFAA's Rebecca Lopez

In early February, Lopez initially detailed the incident involving Manziel, who allegedly threatened to kill himself and Crowley. Manziel also allegedly struck Crowley and dragged her by her hair. 

"He grabbed me by my hair and threw me back into the car and got back in himself," Crowley reportedly told police, according to Lopez. "He hit me with his open hand on my left ear for jumping out of the car."

A Feb. 2 statement from Cleveland Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown suggested Manziel will not return to the team next season.
