E.J. Manuel has minor procedure on his left knee


Between flashes of quality play, Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel’s rookie year was defined by his problems staying healthy.

He’s hoping he has that under control now.

Manuel told Tim Graham of the Buffalo News he had a minor procedure on his left knee recently, describing it as an “in-and-out.” He’s already rehabbing the knee.

Manuel missed six games this season because of three separate knee problems, but played well at times.

If he can stay on the field, it would help his development as a pocket passer, which the Bills are committed to, saying they wanted to hire a quarterbacks coach to assist him.

    It was just a minor procedure. So it will only be a little bit stronger than it ever was, when he returns.

    He has another minor issue. His team sucks.

    Three knee injuries in one season is troubling. Injury prone? Quarterback coach won’t help that.

    Manuels struggles his rookie season were all injury and mental based. He has the intelligence and the drive to fix the mental issues. The question remains, how long will his knee be a liability? And if the answer is always, he may have issues sticking in the league

    Wait. So you have a rookie QB and no QB coach? These are the types of things thatcause you to miss the playoffs for 14 consuecutive seasons.

    His knee problem might overtake the number of concecutive years we haven’t been to the playoffs

    Great draft pick Buffs, he’s made of glass!

    The Bills had a QB in the past that always seemed to have knee issues. He was still able to take the Bills to 4 straight Super Bowls and had a Hall of Fame career.

    Manuel will make a huge jump in his first full offseason with the Bills and lead them to multiple playoff appearances.

    I feel for this kid cause he seems to genuinely be a good guy. But the harsh reality of the NFL is they need to give him this year and this year only to prove his worth.

    If they find themselves in another losing season next year they need to cut ties. Mariotta and Winston out of next years draft are both studs.

    Give EJ another shot, he deserves it. But only one.
