PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) - Now that Kevin Kolb has a few practices under his belt this week, the Bills' quarterback competition is back underway. Kolb will be the starter Friday night against the Vikings.
Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone said, if Kolb had been healthy, he would have started the first preseason game, with rookie EJ Manuel starting the second. Instead, the roles get flipped.
Manuel started Sunday's matchup against the Colts, with Kolb sidelined by a knee injury.
Kolb returned to practice this week and did not show any rust, giving him a chance to jump back into the competition.
Marrone also announced that linebacker Kiko Alonso will not play Friday. While he has been medically cleared, Marrone is playing it safe with the second-round pick this early in the preseason.
