Description: Buffalo QB EJ Manuel (January knee surgery), was a full participant in Tuesday's OTA.
Insight: Manuel finished his rookie year with 1,972 yards, 11 passing touchdowns, nine interceptions, 186 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in 10 games. With only Thad Lewis, Jeff Tuel and Dennis Dixon on the roster, the Bills need a completely healthy Manuel to compete in 2014.
 
12/27/2013 12:45:00 PM
Description: Buffalo QB EJ Manuel has been ruled out for Week 17, according to Bills beat reporter Joe Buscaglia. Thad Lewis will start for a second straight game.
Insight: Manuel has sprained both knees in the last three months and will finish his rookie year with 1,972 yards, 11 passing touchdowns, nine interceptions, 186 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in 10 games.
 
12/26/2013 12:25:00 PM
Description: Buffalo QB EJ Manuel has been practicing the week and is questionable for Sunday's game against New England, according to Bills beat reporter Joe Buscaglia.
Insight: He sprained his knee two week's ago versus Jacksonville. We should know more after coach Doug Marrone talks to the media as to whether it will be Manuel or Thad Lewis at the controls in Week 17.
 
12/18/2013 3:44:00 PM
Description: Buffalo QB EJ Manuel won't be on the field Sunday against Miami.
Insight: He sprained his knee last week versus Jacksonville and still has a lot of swelling. Thad Lewis will get the start under center.
 
11/17/2013 5:40:00 PM
Description: Even without Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods, Bills rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel was able to have his best game of the season Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: Manuel aired the ball out to receivers Marquise Goodwin and T.J. Graham, hitting both players for touchdowns of 30-plus yards. He finished with 20 completions on 28 attempts, 245 yards and two scores. This puts Manuel back on the QB2 radar after a dismal Week 10 effort against the Steelers.
 
11/7/2013 4:39:00 PM
Description: Bills coach Doug Marrone confirmed that E.J. Manuel (knee) will start Sunday against the Steelers.
Insight: Manuel missed a little over a month after spraining his knee in a loss to Cleveland. Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel proved to be ineffective backups, going just 1-3 in his absence. While the Steelers were torched by Tom Brady in Week 9, their pass defense was strong in the weeks prior. Consider Manuel a low-end QB2 this week.
 
11/6/2013 10:10:00 AM
Description: According to the Bills' official Twitter page, E.J. Manuel is expected to get the start at quarterback this week against the Steelers.
Insight: Manuel missed a little over a month after spraining his knee in a loss to Cleveland. Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel proved to be ineffective backups, going just 1-3 in his absence. Pittsburgh's secondary has never looked more vulnerable after giving up a franchise-record 55 points Sunday against New England. This should be a good matchup for Manuel.
 
11/4/2013 11:20:00 AM
Description: Buffalo's franchise QB E.J. Manuel (knee) has been cleared to practice, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak.
Insight: That means he could be back as soon as Week 10. On the other hand, the Bills might choose to bring Manuel back after the team's bye in Week 12. Obviously, his return would be huge for owners of Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods.
 
11/1/2013 1:53:00 PM
Description: Buffalo QB E.J. Manuel has been participating in individual drills, but still shouldn't be expected to return until Week 10 or 11 at the earliest.
Insight: With the Bills out of any playoff picture, there is no reason to rush Manuel back into the lineup before he is completely ready. They could even wait until after their Week 12 bye.

Description: Buffalo QB E.J. Manuel is still 4-to-6 weeks away from returning from the knee injury he suffered in Week 5 against Cleveland. SOURCE: Mike Rodak, ESPN
Insight: Thad Lewis was better than expected in his debut last week but it remains to be seen how long the team will stick with him now that Matt Flynn is on the roster. In Buffalo, only running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson can be trusted for fantasy purposes.
 
10/4/2013 8:47:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel is expected to miss "six weeks or so" due to an LCL sprain, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Insight: There have been several reports of Manuel's timetable saying he could miss anywhere from 4-8 weeks. The Bills could consider free agents Josh Freeman or Vince Young for the starting job. Young was with the team as a backup last season.
 
10/4/2013 2:36:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel will miss a few games due to a sprained LCL, but should return to play quarterback this season, according to Bills beat reporter Joe Buscaglia.
Insight: Manuel took a shot to the knee after scrambling for a first down in the third quarter Thursday night. Jeff Tuel is the only quarterback on the roster, so unless they make a move, he'll be the Bills starter for a while. Reduce wideouts Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods value until Manuel returns to the lineup.
 
10/3/2013 10:48:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel left Thursday's game against the Browns with a right knee injury.
Insight: Manuel took a shot to the knee after scrambling for a first down in the third quarter. He was walking around on the sidelines in an effort to test his knee out but went to the locker room shortly thereafter. Browns QB Brian Hoyer also left the game with a knee injury, so the fourth quarter will end up being a battle of Brandon Weeden versus Jeff Tuel if Manuel is unable to return.
 
9/4/2013 10:23:00 AM
Description: In a surprise move, the Bills have opted to start E.J. Manuel Week 1 against the Patriots.
Insight: The surprise isn't that Manuel is getting the start over Jeff Tuel. That's a no-brainer. What's surprising is that Manuel is ready to start just two weeks after undergoing knee surgery. Manuel performed well in the preseason but there's no doubt Bill Belichick will make things difficult for him in Week 1. He's probably not worthy of an Opening Day start.

Insight: Buffalo will decide on Manuel's Week 1 status this Wednesday. If Manuel isn't ready, undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel will get the start against the Patriots.

Description: Buffalo quarterback E.J. Manuel will miss the rest of the preseason after undergoing a minor procedure on his left knee. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports
Insight: Manuel has been unstoppable this preseason, delivering two touchdowns and zero interceptions in his first two appearances. With Manuel out, veteran Kevin Kolb will get most of the reps at QB.
 
Hot8/17/2013 11:58:00 AM
Description: Bills rookie QB E.J. Manuel looked calm and in control for a second week and and is clearly ahead of Kevin Kolb in the battle for the starting job.
Insight: Through two exhibition games Manuel is 26-of-33 for 199 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. His QB rating is 112.0 while Kolb's rating is 55.9.
 
4/25/2013 10:40:00 PM
Description: The Bills selected Florida State QB E.J. Manuel with the 16th pick in the first round Thursday night at the 2013 NFL Draft.
Insight: Manuel was the first quarterback selected. The Bills were expected to go with Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib at No. 16 so this choice comes as a bit of a shock. Manuel is known for his elite running ability and has already drawn comparisons to Michael Vick. He could have a chance to overtake Kevin Kolb for the starting quarterback position in Buffalo next season.
