‘Johnny Football’ suspended for first half of season opener
COLLEGE STATION, Texas- We’re getting word the Johnny Manziel, also known as ‘Johnny Football’ will be suspended for the first half of this Saturday’s game against Rice.
Manziel was being investigated by the NCAA for allegedly making a profit for autographed sports apparel during the off-season.
An agreement has been reached between Texas A&M Aggies and the NCAA, which puts an end to that investigation.
The NCAA now says Manziel did not receive any money for signing autographs.
Manziel led the Texas A&M Aggies to a 10-2 record during the regular season, along with a win at the AT&T Cotton Bowl.
Manziel also won the 2012 Heisman Trophy.
Texas A&M takes on Rice on Saturday at 12 p.m. on Kyle Field.
