Manziel misses Als prac­tice but is not ex­pected to miss game

The Western Star - - SPORTS -

MONTREAL - Johnny Manziel wasn’t at the Montreal Alou­ettes’ first prac­tice of the week, but coach Mike Sher­man ex­pects him to be in the lineup on Satur­day in Ed­mon­ton. Sher­man said Manziel at­tended a quar­ter­backs meet­ing Tues­day but missed prac­tice be­cause of “a pre­vi­ously di­ag­nosed med­i­cal con­di­tion that re­quired blood work.”

There were fears that Manziel suf­fered a con­cus­sion when he took a crush­ing hit while try­ing to run the ball over the goalline for a touch­down dur­ing a 24-17 de­feat in Ot­tawa on the week­end. He did not ap­pear to be as sharp af­ter­ward. He fum­bled on the play, but Montreal re­cov­ered for the ma­jor. But Sher­man sees no rea­son why Manziel would not be fit to play in Ed­mon­ton.
