COLLEGE STATION, Tx. - Will Johnny Manziel play on Saturday when No. 7 Texas A&M opens the season at Rice amid allegations that he received payment for autographs?

It was the only thing anyone really wanted to talk about on Tuesday when the Aggies addressed the media. The topic, however, was off limits.

Athletic director Eric Hyman said Monday night that he'd instructed everyone in the program not to talk about the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback. Reporters asked anyway, and coach Kevin Sumlin responded by saying: "We're not discussing that."

ESPN, citing an anonymous source, reported that Manziel met with NCAA investigators over the weekend. CBSSports.com, also citing anonymous sources, reported that Manziel told the investigators he didn't take money for his autograph, which could violate amateurism rules and put his eligibility in question.
