Johnny Manziel not present at Alouettes practice for second straight day

Johnny Manziel is missing from Alouettes practice on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old quarterback missed practice on Tuesday due to a prescheduled medical appointment.

Manziel went 16-for-26 passing for 168 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in a 24-17 loss to the Ottawa Redblacks on Saturday night, far better than his first CFL start when he had four passes picked off by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a 50-11 drubbing.

The Alouettes released a statement explaining Manziel’s absence from practice on Wednesday.
