Johnny Manziel suffers shoulder injury on run (GIF)

Johnny ManzielFor the second week in a row, Johnny Manziel headed for the sidelines with an injury. Only this one seemed a lot more serious than the last one.

Manziel scrambled on second and goal early in the fourth quarter against Auburn and was tackled at the two. He landed on his throwing shoulder and left the game. Matt Joeckel replaced him at quarterback.

Manziel tried to pick up a football and throw it on the sidelines, but he was unable to, so Joeckel came out to quarterback Texas A&M on the Aggies’ next drive. The Aggies went three-and-out on the drive.

Manziel must have been feeling better, because he re-emerged on the sidelines around the time of the punt and was able to throw the ball. He then returned after Auburn took a 38-34 lead. He seemed uncomfortable with his shoulder, but he was still able to sling it like normal and led the Aggies to a touchdown.

In all, Manziel left on 3rd-and-goal (A&M settled for a 20-yard field goal). And then he missed their next drive, which resulted in a punt. He returned after that and led a touchdown drive.
