Bills sign Byrd, are granted preseason exemption

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Injuries at quarterback were the most disappointing aspect of camp. Rookie EJ Manuel appeared well on his way toward earning the starting job until injuring his left knee in a 20-16 win over Minnesota on Friday.

The first-round draft pick is expected to miss the rest of the preseason, but has not been ruled out for the opener.

Manuel’s injury came less than a week after veteran Kevin Kolb returned from a left knee injury. Kolb was hurt Aug. 3, when he slipped on a wet rubber mat between practice fields.

Marrone was pleased with camp, but stressed there’s more work to be done.

“We’ve got to continue to get better,” Marrone said. “We’re still a work in progress and we’re not where we need to be.”
