Bills announced QB E.J. Manuel will need to undergo "a minor knee procedure" an will be out rest of preseason.
Manuel looked primed to win the Bills' QB competition. Now Kevin Kolb will have a chance to get a ton of reps in Manuel's absence. It sounds as if this procedure on the knee may be a scope, which usually keeps athletes out 2-4 weeks. After the procedure, the team didn't lay out a timetable for Manuel's return, but he'll likely be day-to-day as camp winds down, leaving it open that he can still win the job. He's been the better option in camp so far.
