Johnny Manziel briefly left Texas A&M’s game with Ole Miss on Saturday after appearing to hurt his left knee in the first quarter.
Manziel was scrambling to his left on a first and 10 play midway through the first quarter and threw an incomplete pass. He immediately went to the ground and grabbed his left knee and was helped off the field. A&M ran the ball the next two downs and then attempted a field goal that missed.
ESPN later reported that the team put a bigger softer brace on Manziel’s left knee and that the reigning Heisman Trophy winner told Kevin Sumlin he was OK to return to the game. ESPN also believes the knee Manziel grabbed was the same one he sprained last year against Missouri.
Manziel was back in the game on the team’s next possession, but not after giving his team a scare for a while.
