Report: Johnny Manziel Questioned By NCAA For 6 Hours On Sunday

That's a long time.

Update:According to CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman, Manziel denied that he took any money for autographs.

Earlier: The NCAA, often criticized for dragging its feet on investigations, seems to be moving rather quickly in regards to Johnny Manziel's alleged cash-for-autographs scandal. According to ESPN, the NCAA met with the Texas A&M quarterback for six hours on Sunday for questioning:

The governing body's officials met with Manziel, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, for nearly six hours on the College Station, Texas, campus, the source said.

It was unclear whether the NCAA was satisfied with the initial meeting with Manziel or if it would require additional time with the redshirt sophomore. Texas A&M's season begins Saturday, at home against Rice.

Manziel, who won last year's Heisman Trophy and led the Aggies to a Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma, was reported to have accepted payment for numerous autograph signing sessions.

Texas A&M's season kicks off this Saturday against Rice.
