Flu side­lines Manziel at Alou­ettes prac­tice

Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

Quar­ter­back Johnny Manziel wasn’t at the Mon­treal Alou­ettes’ prac­tice Mon­day. A team of­fi­cial said the former Heis­man Tro­phy win­ner was suf­fer­ing from the flu. Manziel did prac­tise Sun­day, tak­ing reps with the sec­ond-team of­fence. An­to­nio Pip­kin re­mains Mon­treal’s starter, hav­ing posted a 2-1 record since tak­ing the job. Manziel started two games for Mon­treal, both losses. He went through con­cus­sion pro­to­col fol­low­ing Mon­treal’s 24-14 loss to Ot­tawa on Aug. 24. But he was the backup to Pip­kin in the Als’ 21-11 vic­tory over the Red­blacks on Aug. 31. Mon­treal (3-8) hosts the B.C. Lions (4-6) Fri­day.
