The Buffalo Bills will make a decision on EJ Manuel’s status on Wednesday. Manuel will either start the Bills season opener against New England or he will be on the sidelines behind undrafted free agent Jeff Tuel. Manuel participated in individual drills Sunday and is expected to take part in team drills beginning Monday. Head coach Doug Marrone plans to wait until Wednesday to make a decision on who will start for the Bills. The Bills must feel comfortable with the way Manuel’s knee is doing. They kept only Tuel along with him on their roster before adding Thadeus Lewis.

EJ Manuel returns to practice for Bills

So it may not be "Tuel Time" after all.
