Manziel placed under concussion protocol

MONTREAL (AP) — Johnny Manziel was placed under the Canadian Football League’s concussion protocol Wednesday.

The Montreal Alouettes quarterback was hit at the goal line last weekend in a 24-17 loss at Ottawa.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner struggled in his CFL debut against Hamilton, throwing four first-half interceptions, then was much better against the Redblacks. He did fumble after taking the big hit, but Montreal recovered for a touchdown.
