EJ Manuel is expected to miss the remainder of the preseason , but Bills HC Doug Marrone is holding out hope that the Bills top draft choice can be ready to practice the week leading up to the season opener against New England.
“That’s what I’m hoping for,” said Marrone. “He had the procedure done and he was with us on the field the other day just watching and observing. I think we just have to wait until that period where the doctor looks at him and says, ‘Here’s where we are.’ Because people recover so differently from minor stuff.”
He almost has to be ready... With Kevin Kolb having a concussion, the Bills would have to turn to either Jeff Tuel or a free agent. Both Matt Leinart and John Beck are expected to workout for the team.
