Texas A&M and all college football fans exhale as Johnny Manziel is OK despite a knee injury scare

For a couple moments, the best player in college football was on the turf in pain, holding his knee.

Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M's freshman quarterback who is the frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy, had his knee twisted in a weird way as he was tackled at the end of a first quarter run against Missouri. He immediately grabbed his left knee, and anyone who enjoys college football had to think the worst.

Fortunately, Manziel was OK. In fact, by the second quarter, he was back on the field with a knee brace on and led Texas A&M on a touchdown drive. His 4-yard touchdown throw to Ryan Swope gave the Aggies a 28-0 lead. He also broke the SEC single-season record for total offense, set by Cam Newton in 2010.

Manziel looks like he avoided a major injury, and continues his drive towards the Heisman Trophy.
