(Sports Network) - Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel reportedly has been suspended for the first half of Saturday's season opener.

According to a report by ESPN, after officials met with Manziel for nearly six hours Sunday, the NCAA and Texas A&M came to an agreement Wednesday to bench the Heisman Trophy winner for the first half against Rice.

The decision to suspend Manziel closes the book on the signal-caller's recent issues, stemming from an investigation by the NCAA about whether Manziel received compensation for signing autographs at different locations, including South Florida while attending last January's BCS National Championship Game.
