NFL Injury Report:
Buffalo Bills quarterback, E.J. Manuel, returned to practice
on Sunday, reports Kevin
Patra of NFL.com. Manuel has been
sidelined most of the preseason with knee issues and recently had arthroscopic
Manuel’s return was expected after Saturday’s cut down
because the Bills only kept two QBs, Manuel and fellow rookie, Jeff Tuel. The Bills’ other QB, Kevin Kolb, was placed
on the injured reserve list (concussion) and is gone for the season.
It is still unclear who will be the Week 1 starter. Earlier reports out of Orchard Park had Tuel
getting the nod. However, now that
Manuel is back in action, Tuel’s regular season debut could be “two-ninety” road
Most football talking heads would ask, does it really matter
who is QB for the Bills in Week 1 when Brady’s bunch rolls into town? I think it does, if only for the fact that we
get to see how a rookie QB will respond to ruthless adversity.

According to Peter Schrager of FOXSports.com Bills head coach Doug Marrone is expected to name E.J. Manuel the Bills’ Week 1 starter on Wednesday.
So it may not be "Tuel Time" after all. The Patriot's week one visit to Buffalo was looking more and more like a lay-up when it was announced Jeff Tuel, and undrafted free agent out of Washington State, would be the starting quarterback.
Even during his senior year, Tuel didn't exactly shine, throwing 8 TD's and 8 interceptions. So even for a Patriot's...
Tuel time is over before it started.
After E.J. Manuel had surgery during the preseason, many thought that he wouldn't be ready in time for the team's season opener against the Patriots.
