Johnny Manziel recovering from 'dehydration,' still going to SEC Media Days

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The reigning Heisman winner left the Manning Passing Academy early, leading to plenty of rumors.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is home recovering from dehydration, his father told Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News, but the school said Sunday that he will still be able to attend SEC Media Days, which begin Tuesday. Manziel is scheduled to meet with media members on Wednesday morning.

Manziel was in Louisiana over the weekend to serve as a counselor at the Manning Passing Academy but left the camp early because of his apparent illness. The early departure didn't come without controversy -- rumors were rampant about a late night on the town Friday being responsible for the early exit. Manziel was also spotted out in College Station's bar district Saturday night, which didn't help quell the speculation.

Manziel's media day press conference is scheduled to begin early, and naturally the jokes are underway.

There might end up being a question or three about the weekend.
