Bills' Manuel expected to play "well into" 1st quarter
Upon the completion of their 11th practice of training camp at St. John Fisher College the Buffalo Bills were mum on their plans for their starting players, including quarterback EJ Manuel. The second-year player is entering a crucial season not only for his development but for the team's as well, and Sunday marks his first time on the field in 2014 against live opponents.
While some would prefer the Bills to limit their plans for Manuel in the team's first preseason game of the year, but that doesn't appear to be in the plans. According to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, Manuel is expected to play "well into" the first quarter, while New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is only expected to get a series or two.
The Bills are up against the Giants in this year's version of the Hall of Fame Game, an annual contest between two teams right behind the Pro Football Hall of Fame at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio. The two sides are scheduled to kick off the preseason schedule at 8pm in front of a national television audience.
