Bills QB Manuel returns to practice
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel returned to practice Sunday after missing two weeks because of a left knee injury.
Manuel participated in warm-ups and individual drills during the portion of practice open to the media. He moved well and did not appear to show any effects from the injury. He was wearing a small brace on his left knee underneath his black spandex.
Manuel had been out since being hurt Aug. 16 in Buffalo's second preseason game. He had what the team referred to as a ''minor procedure'' on the knee on Aug. 18.
The Bills have remained hopeful that the first-round pick would return in time to start the team's season opener against New England.
