Johnny Manziel injured during Texas A&M loss to Auburn
Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel completed 28 of 38 attempts for 454 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday night’s 45-41 loss to Auburn. Manziel also ran for 48 yards, but injured his shoulder during one of those runs.
The reigning Heisman Trophy winner was evaluated after the game by trainers, who looked at his throwing (right) shoulder. His status is yet to be determined.
He was injured early in the fourth quarter, when he was slammed into the ground on a tackle following an 8-yard run. He missed a series after that, getting checked out briefly and throwing the ball on the sidelines. A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said Manziel told him “he was ready to go” in reentering the game.
