(CBS) Reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel has been suspended for the first half of No. 7 Texas A&M’s season opener against Rice.

According to a report from ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, “the agreement between the NCAA and Texas A&M closes the book on Manziel’s recent issues.”

The suspension centers around a report that surfaced earlier this month claiming Manziel was paid for signing autographs.
