Manziel has yet to play in a meaningful game this season, sitting behind Jeremiah Masoli in Hamilton. However, he will likely play for a Montreal team that has scored only 69 points through the team's first five games.
The Alouettes are coached by Mike Sherman, who coached Manziel during his redshirt freshman season at Texas A&M in 2011.
The 25-year-old Manziel is signed with the Canadian Football League until the end of the 2019 season.
