Johnny Manziel reportedly out of sling, fine to play Saturday
Manziel hurt his shoulder last weekend in a loss to Auburn after being tackled at the 2-yard line on a run in the fourth quarter. Manziel missed the rest of the series and the next one, but he returned to the game and was able to throw passes.
A&M receiver Mike Evans told reporter Brent Zwerneman on Tuesday that Manziel was in a sling during Monday’s practice to keep his shoulder immobilized. CBS Sports’ Bruce Feldman said Tuesday Manziel was out of the sling and “fine to play” on Saturday against Vandy.
Head coach Kevin Sumlin has only said that he hopes Manziel will be able to play. If Manziel is unable to play, backup Matt Joeckel would get the start.
The Aggies are favored by 17 points in the game.
