COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - If Texas A&M's scrimmage Saturday night at Kyle Field was an indication, the Aggies have every intention of playing Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel in the Aug. 31 opener against Rice.
Manziel took the majority of snaps in the Aggies' first and likely only open scrimmage of preseason camp. The sophomore is under NCAA and A&M scrutiny about whether he accepted pay from brokers for autographing memorabilia.
Manziel occasionally flashed his celebrated quickness out of the backfield, but primarily worked on his pocket presence in throwing two touchdown passes along with an interception to linebacker Tommy Sanders, a junior-college transfer.
