The Alouettes are scheduled to visit the Eskimos at 8 p.m. ET Saturday. The Alouettes since released a statement regarding the situation.

The first year CFL quarterback missed practice Tuesday, a few days after taking an enormous hit in his squad's 24-17 loss in Ottawa on Saturday. In view of the hit he received on Saturday and the potential mitigating side effects of his prescribed medication, the Alouettes medical staff has placed Manziel under the CFL concussion protocol for further observation and precautionary reasons.

Johnny Manziel has been placed in the CFL's concussion protocol, the Montreal Alouettes announced Wednesday.

With Manziel out for the foreseeable future, things have officially gone from bad to worse for the Alouettes.

More blood pressure, heart failure medications added to FDA recall
According to the company, they notified authorities as soon as they learned that their drug might have been contaminated by NDMA. A list of medicines containing valsartan from Zhejiang Tianyu will be available from national drug agencies.

Barstool Sports' Kayce Smith, who co-hosts a podcast with Manziel, is reporting that he will not be playing this weekend.

Halfway through the third quarter, Manziel weaved his way into the end zone, the scramble culminating with a shot to his head, after which he seemed dazed. His final stat line read 16 for 26 through the air with 168 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions.

After throwing four first-half interceptions in his Montreal debut, a 50-11 loss to Hamilton on August 3, Manziel was 16-for-26 for 168 yards last Saturday without an interception in a 24-17 loss.
