Thanks to their appearance on Thursday Night Football versus the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night, Friday has been unusually busy with news regarding the Buffalo Bills. The injury-plagued Bills continue to take hits to their team health in their 37-24 loss to the Browns, while the punting unit’s struggles to stop Browns punt returner Travis Benjamin has cost at least one Bills player his job.
EJ Manuel Out “A Few Weeks” with LCL Sprain
The primary concern for the Buffalo Bills and their fan base since Thursday night’s game has been the health of quarterback EJ Manuel, who left the game and did not return after taking a hit to his right knee in the third quarter.
Bills coach Doug Marrone provided some clarity about Manuel’s injury on Friday, defining the injury as an LCL sprain according to the team’s official Twitter account. Marrone said the injury, which will not require surgery, is expected to keep him out “a few weeks.”
