It was a short stay.
Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel left camp early this weekend.
The rising football star was sent home from the Manning Passing Academy in Hibodaux, Louisiana, on Saturday afternoon by ‘Archie Manning himself’ after allegedly spending a night out on the town Friday and showing up late to Saturday’s scheduled events.

The news of his ‘late-night partying’ was first reported by Rumors and Rants over the weekend, while Busted Coverage released photos of Manziel, 20, out drinking with Eli and Peyton Manning.
Camp officials told local reporters that Manziel ‘is sick’ and had to leave early, while his father has maintained that he came home to recover from dehydration.
Manziel was working as counselor at the camp, which helps develop high school football players, before he left early.
‘Johnny Manziel did participate in some activities in the 2013 Manning Passing Academy as a college counselor/coach,’ a camp spokesman said in a written statement.
‘After missing and being late for practice assignments, Johnny explained that he had been feeling ill. Consequently, we agreed that it was in everyone's best interest for him to go home a day early.’

Earlier this summer Manziel railed against living in College Station because of a parking ticket and almost transferred away from Texas A&M before the 2012 season, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Rumors and Rants said over the weekend that Manziel was out on the town in College Station on Saturday night, despite claims of him being sick.
Manziel, who was nationally recruited out of high school as a dual-threat quarterback with an impressive ability to extend plays, has been enjoying the spotlight since he won the Heisman trophy for his performance in 2012.
He was given the nickname ‘Johnny Football’ by fans and students at Texas A&M before the start of the 2012 season.
The nickname is now a registered trademark.
