DALLAS - Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel has reached a deal with prosecutors for the conditional dismissal of a domestic assault case involving his former girlfriend.

Defense attorney Jim Darnell said there was still work to be done to finalize the deal, but said after a Thursday morning hearing that he was encouraged. A judge set another hearing for Dec. 1, when the case could be settled.

The troubled former Cleveland quarterback left the courtroom without responding to questions.

The 23-year-old Manziel is accused of hitting and threatening former girlfriend Colleen Crowley during a night out in January. The former star at Texas A&M faces a misdemeanor assault charge that carries a penalty of up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
