A week after hurting his knee against Ole Miss, Johnny Manziel hurt his right shoulder against Auburn. After missing six minutes of game action, the Texas A&M quarterback was able to return to the game.
Manziel was scrambling towards the goal line in the fourth quarter and as he got tackled at the three, he landed on his right forearm and shoulder, which is his throwing arm.
He was helped off the field and after being attended to on the sideline, attempted to throw a pass to Mike Evans. As he wound up, he quickly stopped and turned to Texas A&M's training staff and shook his head, signaling that he was unable to throw the football. He subsequently went to the locker room, but returned to the Texas A&M sideline and was playing catch.
After he went to the locker room, Manziel emerged shortly thereafter and came back into the game with nine minutes remaining and Texas A&M trailing 38-34. Against Ole Miss, Manziel hurt his left knee while rolling out for a pass, but re-entered the game. He played Saturday with a brace on his knee.
When he was out, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner was replaced by Matt Joeckel, who started A&M's first game of the season when Manziel was suspended for the first half because of an NCAA investigation into allegations that he profited off autographs.
