Johnny Manziel suspended for first half of season opener

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has been suspended for the first half of Saturday's season opener due to an inadvertent violation of NCAA rules regarding the signing of certain autographs. After officials met with Manziel for nearly six hours Sunday, the NCAA and Texas A&M came to an agreement Wednesday to bench the Heisman Trophy winner for the first half against Rice.
