Memphis Express quarterback Johnny Manziel suffered a scary head injury Saturday afternoon against the Orlando Apollos.
Following an interception on a very catchable pass in the red zone, Manziel dived to make a tackle on the return. He appeared to get kicked in the head in the process, and one of his hands looked like it went limp as he was on the ground. (RELATED: Johnny Manziel Throws For 48 Yards, Rushes For 20 In AAF Debut)

I’m going to go ahead and say we’re probably not seeing Johnny Football again today. That shot looked brutal.
They haven’t announced yet what he’s been diagnosed with, but that appears to be a concussion if I’ve ever seen one. That’s a damn shame too because he was playing incredibly well in the first quarter before getting knocked out.

That’s a very scary head injury and there’s no other way to put it.
