With Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb on injured reserve with his latest concussion and plenty of teams needing plenty of help at quarterback (e.g., Austin Davis or Davis Austin, we’ve explored the question of whether Kolb could be released from injured reserve and resurface with a new team.

Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, it won’t happen.

While players can be released from IR once healthy (or with an injury settlement that estimates when they’ll be healthy), Kolb will remain on IR all season.

It suggests that Kolb’s concussion was far from “mild,” and it calls into serious question Kolb’s status for 2014 and beyond.
