EJ Manuel injury update

12/25/2013

The Buffalo Bills listed quarterback EJ Manuel (knee) as limited in practice on their projected injury report Wednesday.

The Bills did not practice Wednesday but will return to the field Thursday.

Manuel, who sat out Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins with a knee sprain, was on the practice field Tuesday. Coach Doug Marrone later said that Manuel's knee would be re-evaluated by Thursday.
