Report: Manziel will play vs. Eskimos, won't start

  Report: Manziel will play vs. Eskimos, won't start The football world will see a glimpse of Johnny Manziel in action for the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday, as a source told Chris O'Leary of CFL.ca the club will use the quarterback in specific packages. Vernon Adams Jr. will get the start against the Edmonton Eskimos, but Manziel will see limited action just days after arriving in Montreal via trade from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Manziel didn't see any regular-season snaps in five games with Hamilton after spending time on the sidelines behind starter Jeremiah Masoli, but the Alouettes' offensive struggles will open the door for the former Heisman Trophy winner.

It only took a few drives for Manziel to leave an impression on the CFL and send Twitter into chaos. Unfortunately for Manziel, that’s because his CFL debut got off to a disastrous start.

Johnny Manziel chalks up disastrous CFL debut to test from ‘football gods’ .
Johnny Manziel’s debut in the Canadian Football League last week was beyond inauspicious. In fact, it was a downright disaster. The 25-year-old quarterback, being quite familiar with pitfalls and setbacks in a bid to resurrect his professional football career, simply chalked up the debacle to a test from the “football gods.” Manziel has been relatively pragmatic about his mishap-prone outing last Friday with the Montreal Alouettes, a horrific performance that  included four first-half interceptions. That outlook continued while Manziel discussed it anew on Barstool Sports podcast “Comeback SZN.”“[It] tests your drive.
