PLAYERS: E.J. ManuelKevin Kolb
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
BY NICK ST. DENISWith the Buffalo Bills a week and a half into training camp, head coach Doug Marrone will conduct a live intersquad scrimmage Monday evening.Marrone cut the team's Sunday practice short so the players could be well-rested for their first dress rehearsal, and after practice, he broke down the team's plan for Monday."We’re going to come out here, stretch, pursuit, have some individual and do some special teams. Early on, some seven-on-seven. Take some little breaks. Special teams will be involved in the scrimmage. They’ll have about two in-field drives, probably 12, 12 and six with the others. We’ll do that twice."Then we’ll have a little bit of a more controlled scrimmage. We’ll go red zone, make sure we get enough red zone in. And then we’ll do goal line and then we’ll end it up with a series of two-minute. One series probably for each."Many eyes will be focused on what kind of evening rookie E.J. Manuel can put together.

Buffalo Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb has been excused from training camp because of a death in his family.

Here Are The Mats That Injured Kevin Kolb

Kevin Kolb was destined to be replaced at quarterback by Bills first-round pick E.J. Manuel. At best, Kolb would be called upon to open the season with a few losses if Manuel were deemed unprepared at the end of the preseason.

Kevin Kolb's injury opens the door for E.J. Manuel to win starting job

Yesterday, Kolb injured his knee slipping on a mat while transferring from one field to another. Head coach Doug Marrone described the injury as not serious and "day to day...

Manuel threw two...

Bills' Kolb Misses Sunday practice after freak knee injury

Buffalo Bills Practice Scrimmage Thoughts

On Monday night, the Bills participated in a practice scrimmage. Thanks to the Bills’ official website, Chris Trapasso and Buffalo Rumblings I felt as if I were live in attendance.

Buffalo Bills: 6 Headlines from Training Camp (July 29-Aug 5)

My 2013 Bills Preview: QBs

What is the number now? Ten starting QBs since Jim Kelly retired? It is so funny how spoiled Bills fans from the '90s were. We had year after year of success and I think most fans assumed we'd just dial 1-800-GIVE-US-A-QB and presto, the next Jim Kelly would walk through those doors.
