Bills expect QB Manuel to return Sunday

The SportsXchange

Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel is expected to return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, coach Doug Marrone said Thursday.

Marrone said that the team wanted to see how Manuel responded from his return to practice before making any determinations about which quarterback would be starting Sunday.

"EJ coming back today wasn't sore or anything and that's what we were waiting for," Marrone said. "He took the majority of snaps in practice so barring any setbacks I'm planning on him going."

The rookie quarterback, who the Bills selected with the 16th overall pick in the 2013 draft, sprained his LCL on Oct. 3 against the Cleveland Browns and has not played since.

Marrone also said he hopes backup quarterback Thad Lewis gets a clean bill of health after missing last week with a rib injury.
