ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - BREAKING NEWS | Story to be updated as information becomes available
The Buffalo Bills have named EJ Manuel as starting quarterback for Sunday's game.
Manuel returned to practice earlier this week. Manuel had been out since suffering a knee injury in Buffalo's second preseason game on Aug. 16. He had what the team called a ''minor procedure'' on the knee on August 18.
Manuel's return gives the Bills some good news at quarterback after a tumultuous preseason at the position.
Veteran Kevin Kolb, who was competing with Manuel for the starting quarterback job, was placed on injured reserve on August 30. Kolb suffered a concussion against the Washington Redskins on August 24. Kolb also missed time at training camp because of a left knee injury after tripping on a wet rubber mat between practice fields.
With Kolb and Manuel injured, the Bills briefly had only one healthy quarterback in undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel. Buffalo added free agent Matt Leinart and acquired Thad Lewis in a trade with Detroit prior to the team's final preseason game, but both players were released on Saturday. Lewis has since rejoined the Bills as a member of the practice squad.
