E.J. Manuel out for the preseason

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette —

Through two preseason games , Manuel completed 26 of 33 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns, and ran four times for 29 yards.

Kolb had just returned to practice last week after missing eight days with a twisted left knee, he hurt while slipping on a wet rubber mat during practice on Aug. 3.

In starting against Minnesota on Friday, Kolb got off to a slow start. He finished 13 of 21 for 111 yards passing and an interception. Washington State rookie Jeff Tuel is the third-string quarterback.

Kolb will now start against Washington on next Saturday.

Kolb signed with the Bills in the offseason after starting 21 of 32 career games played in a six-year career with Philadelphia and Arizona. He’s thrown for 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions while being sacked 77 times in a career that started as a 2nd round draft pick of the Eagles in 2007.

Marrone also says backup receiver Kevin Elliott will miss the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee.

The Bills return to practice Sunday morning at their training camp facility in suburban Rochester on Sunday.
