Johnny Manziel unlikely to play with first team

People in Aggieland are on pins and needles to see if Johnny Manziel will start for Cleveland or take a back seat role. For a young man very used to the limelight, will warming the bench be something he can do well?

“I don’t think he will,” coach Mike Pettine told reporters Thursday of his plans for Manziel against the Lions on Saturday night. “I think we’re going to let Brian (Hoyer) go. The circumstances could change that obviously. For this game, I think pretty much stick to the units as we’ve practiced so Brian with the ones and Johnny with the twos.”

That veers away from what Pettine suggested Wednesday, when he hinted that Manziel might see first-team reps against Ndamukong Suh and Detroit’s pass rush.

Pettine said there was no “solid” reason for keeping Manziel with the second team beyond “we just didn’t want to mix the units in this game.”
