With under a week to go before Texas A&M kicks off their season against Rice on August 31st, defending Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel looks prepped to start for the Aggies.

Jermey Fowler of CBSSports.com is reporting that the University is proceeding forward for Manziel to be on the field against the Owls.

Fowler sites an industry source that was briefed by a high-ranking Texas A&M offcial on the confidence the University has in the case with the NCAA that could hurt Manziel’s eligibility.

Manziel is being investigated by the NCAA to see if he received money in exchange for signing items.

A&M has not taken any snaps away from Manziel in practice or given more snaps to any other quarterbacks on the team in preparation for a suspension or the red-shirt Sophomore being declared ineligible.

The danger of playing their number one quarterback, for A&M, is if the NCAA gets concrete evidence against Manziel they could make the University vacate any wins the team has with Manziel in the lineup.
