PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) - Bills rookie EJ Manuel will start at quarterback in the team's preseason opener this weekend at Indianapolis. Kevin Kolb, still nursing a knee injury, will dress for the game but will serve as the emergency third-string QB.
"I think we all know, Kevin (Kolb) has been gone for a couple of days and coming off an injury," said Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone. "We’re just working him back in. We’re going to dress him for the game, but EJ (Manuel) will start the game. He’ll get in there, play and we’ll probably put Jeff (Tuel) in there too.'
"Yup, very excited," said Manuel. "We’ve worked out very hard these past two weeks. I know we’re going to be very excited to play a different team. Not playing against our own defense and our defense playing against us, so I’m looking forward to it. "
Marrone would not give a specific number of plays, he is looking to get out of Manuel this Sunday.
"All of our players that are healthy are prepared to play the whole game. Now, is that going to happen? I can’t say yes or no because I don’t want to put my players in a position of injury. EJ is going to start the game. Jeff is going to play in the game but I can’t tell you how long each one is," said Marrone.
