Johnny Manzielunderwent emergency dental surgery on Wednesday that will keep him out of the FCF’s final regular-season game this weekend, TMZ Sports has confirmed.
28-year-old Manziel, the starting QB for the Zappers [0-2], left the Fan Controlled Football league’s bubble environment in Atlanta and traveled back home to Scottsdale, AZ for the procedure, a league spokesperson tells us.
No word on Johnny’s specific medical condition — but obviously, his health is the priority and the league is working with Johnny to make sure he gets the care he needs.
We’re told Manziel — who had the surgery yesterday — is already back in the gym … and the league expects him to return to the FCF bubble in hopes he’ll be ready to go for the team’s playoff game on March 6.
A league rep says Manziel will have to meet “health-and-safety protocols and quarantine procedures” before he’s allowed back — but again, no one is anticipating an issue.
In the meantime, we’re told Manziel will appear on the Week 3 Twitch broadcast as a “special guest” (along with Joe Montana) — so Johnny fans can still get their fix of the Heisman winner.
