12/26/13 - -- QB EJ Manuel participated on a limited basis in practice Thursday, and it now seems likely that he won't play against the Patriots. Thad Lewis took the bulk of the first-team reps.
12/25/13 - -- QB EJ Manuel practiced Tuesday, but his status is unknown for the game so Thad Lewis took first-team reps.
12/24/13 - EJ Manuel sat out the Miami game with another knee injury and watched Lewis direct his second victory of the year over the Dolphins. Manuel practiced Tuesday, and coach Doug Marrone said he would be re-evaluated Thursday before he determines whether the rookie will be able to play against the Patriots. If he can't, it would be a supremely disappointing end to Manuel's season.
He has started 10 games and finished nine, a sample size that leaves his first-year grade at incomplete. Playing against the Patriots would have been important because it's one more opportunity to evaluate the player whom the Bills are hoping is their quarterback of the future.
If he can't go, Thad Lewis will play. He's nothing more than a backup, and for most Bills fans, he's a player the team should take a serious look at replacing in favor of a more accomplished veteran at the position given Manuel's apparent injury-prone nature.
"I'm going to take a look again," Marrone said Tuesday of Manuel's workout. "We've got a day's rest. He went out there and threw well. We're just going to rest him a little bit and come back Thursday and see how his mobility is going."
12/23/13 - QB EJ Manuel was inactive due to a knee injury, and coach Doug Marrone is not sure what Manuel's status will be for Sunday at New England.
