    Bills' EJ Manuel: Questionable backup work

    Manuel started two games in 2015 when Tyrod Taylor was injured, both losses as the Bills fell to the Bengals and Jaguars in back-to-back weeks. He finished the season 52-of-84 for 561 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions. The performances on paper were actually better than what took place on the field, as Manuel pretty much single-handedly lost the Jags game in London, which derailed a somewhat promising season at the time for Rex Ryan's boys. He never tossed a pass after that, and while the team speaks highly of his work ethic and attitude, it remains to be seen if the former first-rounder can capably lead an NFL offense. We'll see if GM Doug Whaley sticks by his guy for one more season, though Taylor is the clear starter entering the 2016 season.

    Bills' EJ Manuel: Suits up Monday

    Manuel is in uniform and will serve as the Bills' backup QB on Monday against the Patriots. Fellow QB Josh Johnson is inactive for the contest, with Manuel thus a Tyrod Taylor injury away from handling the Bills' QB snaps.

    Bills' EJ Manuel: Inactive Thursday

    Manuel is inactive for Thursday's game at the Jets. Apparently, the team isn't quite as confident as they said following one of the more disastrous QB performances seen on TV, er, the internet, this season when the Bills lost to Jacksonville in London. Josh Johnson will back up Tyrod Taylor in this one, while Manuel's long-term status seems as dicey as ever. It's hard to see the 2013 first-rounder working out with this franchise.

    Bills QB EJ Manuel commits three turnovers in loss

    Bills quarterback EJ Manuel completed 24 of 42 passes for 298 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against the Jaguars in London. He also rushed eight times for 38 yards and fumbled twice, losing one. Manuel really struggled throughout the game, though his passing yards were respectable after the Bills were forced to air it out in the second half after trailing 27-3 in the second quarter. Playing without Percy Harvin (hip) and Sammy Watkins (ankle), Manuel threw 24 passes to wideouts Robert Woods and Chris Hogan, with Woods leading the team by catching nine of 13 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown. Manuel was reportedly going to be given a shot to compete for the starting job with a good showing Sunday, but he didn't do nearly enough to justify that opportunity.

    Bills QB EJ Manuel in, Tyrod Taylor out for Sunday

    Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor(knee) has been ruled out for the Week 7 game against Jacksonville. Rex Ryan has declared EJ Manuel as the starter. Taylor logged a limited practice Wednesday in which he split reps with Manuel, but the results of that session apparently did not go as well as planned. Fantasy owners should monitor Taylor's status closely in advance of a Week 8 matchup against Cincinnati.

    Bills' EJ Manuel: In line to start Sunday

    Manuel is in line to start Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars after fellow quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ankle) was ruled out for the contest, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The Bills will head to London for the Week 7 matchup that will take place at 9:30 ET US, and it looks like Manuel will get his second straight start at quarterback. He'll be without top options Sammy Watkins (ankle) and Percy Harvin (hip), however, so Buffalo may still be conservative with their passing attack. With limited options in Week 6, Manuel still managed to complete 66.7 percent of his passes for 263 yards and a score, but the Bills did lean heavily on the running game in that contest. Look for more of the same Sunday, as LeSean McCoy should be ready to be deployed at near-full capacity.

    Bills QB Tyrod Taylor expects to practice Wednesday

    Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor (knee) expects to practice Wednesday, Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News reports. Taylor sat out last week's loss to the Bengals due to his knee injury, but he said he is "progressing each and every day" and is feeling good. Whether or not he will be able to return to action in Week 7 will likely depend on how much work he is able to get in at practice over the next few days, but a final call on his availability may not come until early Sunday morning.

    Bills QB EJ Manuel picks up another rushing score

    Bills' EJ Manuel: Officially Sunday's starter

    Manuel's teammate Tyrod Taylor (knee) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Manuel gets his first start since Week 4 of last season while also getting his chance to show the football world he's improved from two rocky seasons as a pro. Taylor has far exceeded everyone's expectations through five games, so it'd take a major feat for Manuel to pull a coup d'etat on the starting position. That seems pretty unlikely given coach Rex Ryan's praise for Taylor's play so far.
