Analysis: Coach Doug Marrone was non-committal about Manuel's chances after the first-round draft pick tested his injured left knee Tuesday. Marrone wants to review the practice video and evaluate Manuel's mobility once the Bills return to practice Thursday following a day off.
|Dec. 23 12:02 PM PT1:02 PM MT2:02 PM CT3:02 PM ET20:02 GMT4:02 AM 北京时间1:02 PM MST3:02 PM EST2:02 PM CT0:02 UAE (+1)15:02 ET18:02 - Bills coach Doug Marrone is sounding less confident about rookie quarterback EJ Manuel's chances of starting in the season finale at New England this weekend. Marrone sidestepped questions Monday about Manuel's status after he missed a game because of a swollen left knee. Marrone calls it "a process," adding he wants to get "a peek" at the player once the Bills (6-9) return to practice Tuesday.
Analysis: That's a switch from what Marrone said last week. In ruling Manuel out against Miami, Marrone felt "110 percent confident" he would play at New England. If Manuel can't play, backup Thad Lewis will be in line to make his fifth start of the season, and second in a row, after a 19-0 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
|Dec. 18 10:19 AM PT11:19 AM MT12:19 PM CT1:19 PM ET18:19 GMT2:19 AM 北京时间11:19 AM MST1:19 PM EST12:19 PM CT22:19 UAE13:19 ET16:19 - Manuel will miss the Buffalo Bills' game against the Dolphins because of swelling in his left knee, and Thad Lewis will start in his place.
Analysis: Manuel had a procedure on the knee after being hurt in second preseason game but returned for the opener. He then sprained his other knee against Cleveland on Oct. 3 and missed four games.
|Nov. 18 3:38 PM PT4:38 PM MT5:38 PM CT6:38 PM ET23:38 GMT7:38 AM 北京时间4:38 PM MST6:38 PM EST5:38 PM CT3:38 UAE (+1)18:38 ET21:38 - Manuel was excellent in Sunday's 37-14 win over the Jets.
Analysis: Manuel finished 20 of 28 for 245 yards passing and two scores. And he did so with Buffalo playing minus both starting receivers, Stevie Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (sprained left ankle). Sometimes fantasy football is hard to explain.
|Oct. 3 6:49 PM PT7:49 PM MT8:49 PM CT9:49 PM ET1:49 GMT9:49 AM 北京时间6:49 PM MST8:49 PM EST8:49 PM CT5:49 UAE (+1)21:49 ET0:49 - Manuel is active and will start Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Analysis: Manuel hasn't played since spraining his right knee against Cleveland on Oct. 3. Rookie Jeff Tuel, who started last week's 23-13 loss to Kansas City, is among the seven inactive players for Buffalo.
|Sep. 23 9:58 AM PT10:58 AM MT11:58 AM CT12:58 PM ET16:58 GMT12:58 AM 北京时间9:58 AM MST11:58 AM EST11:58 AM CT20:58 UAE12:58 ET15:58 - Manuel, who went No. 16 overall as the first quarterback drafted, was 19 of 42 for 243 yards and a score during the Bills' loss Sunday to the Jets.
Analysis: Manuel continues to grow on the job, which can mean some rough moments for his fantasy owners.
|Sep. 4 4:53 AM PT5:53 AM MT6:53 AM CT7:53 AM ET11:53 GMT7:53 PM 北京时间4:53 AM MST6:53 AM EST6:53 AM CT15:53 UAE7:53 ET10:53 - Bills coach Doug Marrone says Manuel will be his starter in opening the season against New England on Sunday.
Analysis: Manuel is the Bills' first-round draft pick who has been recovering from a left knee injury sustained in a 20-16 preseason win over Minnesota on Aug. 16. He missed two weeks before returning to practice on Sunday.
|Sep. 1 1:54 PM PT2:54 PM MT3:54 PM CT4:54 PM ET20:54 GMT4:54 AM 北京时间1:54 PM MST3:54 PM EST3:54 PM CT0:54 UAE (+1)16:54 ET19:54 - Manuel returned to practice Sunday after missing two weeks because of a left knee injury.
Analysis: Manuel participated in warm-ups and individual drills during the portion of practice open to the media. He moved well and did not appear to show any effects from the injury. He was wearing a small brace on his left knee underneath his black spandex. Manuel had been out since being hurt Aug. 16 in Buffalo's second preseason game. He had what the team referred to as a "minor procedure" on the knee on Aug. 18.
|Aug. 18 8:22 AM PT9:22 AM MT10:22 AM CT11:22 AM ET15:22 GMT11:22 PM 北京时间8:22 AM MST10:22 AM EST10:22 AM CT19:22 UAE11:22 ET14:22 - Manuel had what Bills coach Doug Marrone would only call "a procedure" on his left knee Sunday morning and will miss the rest of the preseason.
Analysis: Marrone says it was "very, very minor" and that Manuel has a good chance of returning before the start of the regular season. Manuel was hurt in Buffalo's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings on Friday. He did not leave the game due to injury but had swelling in the knee Saturday morning.
|Aug. 17 12:34 PM PT1:34 PM MT2:34 PM CT3:34 PM ET19:34 GMT3:34 AM 北京时间12:34 PM MST2:34 PM EST2:34 PM CT23:34 UAE15:34 ET18:34 - Manuel will miss the rest of the preseason after hurting his left knee in Friday night's preseason game.
Analysis: In a statement released by the team Saturday, coach Doug Marrone said the first-round draft pick would have a "minor knee procedure." It's unclear when or how Manuel was hurt in the 20-16 win over Minnesota. He took over to start the second half and opened with a 14-play, 80-yard drive capped by a 4-yard touchdown pass to Brad Smith. He finished 10 of 12 for 92 yards in three series. Marrone says tests on the knee later revealed the injury.
|Aug. 9 5:44 PM PT6:44 PM MT7:44 PM CT8:44 PM ET0:44 GMT8:44 AM 北京时间5:44 PM MST7:44 PM EST7:44 PM CT4:44 UAE (+1)20:44 ET23:44 - Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback EJ Manuel will start Sunday's preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
Analysis: Bills coach Doug Marrone made the announcement after the team's practice on Friday night. Kevin Kolb, Manuel's competitor for Buffalo's starting quarterback job, will serve as an emergency QB as he makes his way back from a left knee injury.
|June 10 3:37 PM PT4:37 PM MT5:37 PM CT6:37 PM ET22:37 GMT6:37 AM 北京时间3:37 PM MST5:37 PM EST5:37 PM CT2:37 UAE (+1)18:37 ET21:37 - The Buffalo Bills have released quarterback Tarvaris Jackson in a move that nudges Manuel one step closer to winning the starting job.
Analysis: The move was announced Monday, a day before Buffalo opens a three-day mandatory minicamp. The timing of the decision frees up additional practice time for Manuel. That leaves Manuel competing with Kevin Kolb, a sixth-year player the Bills signed in free agency in April.
|May 10 4:17 PM PT5:17 PM MT6:17 PM CT7:17 PM ET23:17 GMT7:17 AM 北京时间4:17 PM MST6:17 PM EST6:17 PM CT3:17 UAE (+1)19:17 ET22:17 - Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone is keeping his expectations in check when it comes to assessing quarterback Manuel. Marrone wasn't in a position to award Manuel the starting job when the Bills drafted him in the first round out of Florida State two weeks ago. And the coach certainly didn't have a change of heart after keeping a close eye on the quarterback Friday, when the team opened a three-day rookie minicamp.
Analysis: Marrone credited Manuel for making some "nice throws" and was pleased with what he saw. But he also noted Manuel needs help with his footwork and mechanics. That's the type of performance Marrone says he was expecting from a quarterback who wasn't regarded as the most "polished guy."
|Apr. 26 1:30 PM PT2:30 PM MT3:30 PM CT4:30 PM ET20:30 GMT4:30 AM 北京时间1:30 PM MST3:30 PM EST3:30 PM CT0:30 UAE (+1)16:30 ET19:30 - Manuel is already well-connected to the franchise's Hall-of-Fame past. Bruce Smith, the NFL's career sack leader, is his godfather. Former star quarterback Jim Kelly is ready to take Manuel under his wing.
Analysis: On Friday, Manuel began looking ahead to the future, a day after being the only quarterback selected in the first round of the NFL draft. The Florida State product accepted the challenge of helping usher in a new and improved future for a win-starved franchise. He's the heir-apparent for a starting job that's been unsettled since Kelly retired in January 1997. Manuel also joins a team that's not made the playoffs in 13 seasons.
|Apr. 25 6:12 PM PT7:12 PM MT8:12 PM CT9:12 PM ET1:12 GMT9:12 AM 北京时间6:12 PM MST8:12 PM EST8:12 PM CT5:12 UAE (+1)21:12 ET0:12 - After trading down, the Buffalo Bills still landed the player they desired, Manuel with the 16th pick in the NFL draft.
Analysis: Manuel became the first quarterback selected on Thursday, and filled a big need for a Bills team that's rebuilding under new coach Doug Marrone. Manuel was the most accurate passer at Florida State, where he completed nearly 67 percent of his passes. Listed at 6-foot-4 and 237 pounds, Manuel has a strong arm, is mobile and went 25-6 in four years with the Seminoles.
