Manziel gives A&M injury scare
Not even a knee injury can stop Johnny Manziel.
Texas A&M fans were holding their breath after their star QB went down with a non-contact knee injury in the first half Saturday against Ole Miss. But minutes later, Super Man was back and leading the No. 9 Aggies to a go-ahead touchdown.
Check out the play in which he was injured:
I think Johnny Manziel tore his ACL and then just healed it himself. He's amazing.— @BarkingCarnival (@BarkingCarnival) October 13, 2013
Announcers reported that Manziel returned with a brace on his left knee, which he injured last year. The reigning Heisman winner didn't appear to be too limited, scrambling for a pair of touchdowns and rallying the Aggies to a 41-38 win.
"It's happened before," Coach Kevin Sumlin said of the injury at halftime, and added, "Obviously he's feeling good now."
Manziel finished 31 of 39 for 346 yards. He didn't pass for a TD but he ran for two, including the tying score in the fourth quarter, and finished with 130 yards on the ground.
"He's one of the greatest competitors I've ever been around," Sumlin told FOX Sports Southwest. "Yeah, he takes chances. He plays a little bit on the edge, but that’s what makes him him. If you know him, if he couldn't go 100 percent, he wasn't going to go."
Maybe Manziel didn't heal himself. He was spotted leading teammates in prayer as the Aggies' kicker lined up for the winning field goal.
Oh boy. If God is behind Manziel, then whom shall he fear? Certainly not the NCAA.
