Like Alex Rodriguez, Johnny Manziel will be back on the field Monday despite a potential suspension. Rodriguez can play while appealing a reported year-plus suspension, while Manziel can play while the NCAA is investigating a report he was paid five figures for autographs.
Sports Illustrated reported that Texas A&M officials have said Manziel will be on the field for practice Monday, while Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he had penciled Rodriguez in the line-up for the first time this year for Monday’s game in Chicago against the White Sox.
Manziel stunned the national champion Alabama Crimson Tide last year, and Alabama’s return trip to College Station for the rematch on September 14 at 2:30 CT was one of the most anticipated games of the year. The least expensive ticket (upper level, single ticket) for the game is already up to $448, while many are asking several thousand dollars per ticket. Those prices could go up or down based on if Manziel is still on the field.
Georgia’s AJ Green was suspended $1,000 for selling a jersey for $1,000 and Auburn’s Cam Newton served a one-day suspension for his father asking for a payment from Mississippi State for Newton to play there.
