The Buffalo Bills dispatched of the Minnesota Vikings 20-16 Saturday to go to 2-0 in the preseason. Over that span the Bills offense have put up 64 points to their opponents 36.
Rookie QB EJ Manuel, who went 10-12 for 92 yards was injured but the coaching staff and Manuel himself are not sure when that occurred. Manuel woke up Saturday with a swollen knee. The injury may give slotted backup QB Kevin Kolb a chance to take the reins of the team.
“He will miss the remainder of the preseason and then be re-evaluated at that time,” Head Coach Doug Marrone said in a statement. “Kevin Kolb will be our starting quarterback for this weekend’s game at Washington.”
“There are a lot of variables that go into that: how Kevin is doing, how he is playing, how EJ comes back from the time off, a lot of speculation on that,” Marrone said. “I think I’ll be able to answer that question once we get to the day-to-day (part) and he’s out here practicing.”
The Bills next face the Washington Redskins on Saturday the 24th. Tickets are still available.
