    Here's an update for Nublar........

    EJ Manuel on track to start in Buffalo Bills' opener

    By Chris Wesseling
    Around the League Writer
    Published: Aug. 25, 2013 at 07:29 p.m. Updated: Aug. 26, 2013 at 11:44 a.m.

    Upon receiving news of the Buffalo Bills' trade for quarterback Thaddeus Lewis, Around The League's initial reaction was that it signaled grave concern over Kevin Kolb's latest concussion.

    It gives us no pleasure to report that our instincts were correct. According to Tim Graham of The Buffalo News, the Bills are indeed concerned that Kolb's latest concussion might be career-ending, and they are proceeding with that scenario in mind. A Bills source told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, however, that it's premature for the organization to view the injury as the end of the line for the six-year veteran.

    While the outlook on Kolb is rather grim, the latest news on rookie EJ Manuel now is veering toward the positive. Rapoport reported on Sunday's edition of NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" that Manuel is "on track" to start in the season opener versus the New England Patriots.

    Manuel won't play in Buffalo's preseason finale, leaving Jeff Tuel, Matt Leinart and Lewis to handle quarterback duties.

    In the meantime, expect Kolb to reflect on the viability of continuing his NFL career at age 29. He admittedly suffered two "major" concussions in his career before the 2011 late-season concussion that led to symptoms persisting for months after the injury.

    Considering the health risks and Kolb's uneven play across 21 career starts, it's highly unlikely that he'll ever be viewed as a potential quarterback solution. He has to decide if it's worth risking brain trauma to proceed as a long-term backup.

    That article came out before Doug Marrone publicly said the plan is to start Jeff Tuel. Maybe EJ will be back, but it doesn't sound like the head coach is all that optimistic.

    Whats going on with the Bills?

    Yes the Bills QB situation is worse then the Jets. As bad as Sanchez is he is still better then Manual simply because he has won in the NFL. Sanchez' issue is not a lack of talent it is a mental one and I am not sure if he can ever recover from it. His story is a lot like David Carr's. Manual is unproven.

    UPDATE: Jets beat writers are reporting Sanchez may very well not be ready for week 1. If so, flip a coin who has the worse situation.

    Tough choice who has it worse, but I will say Buffalo if they are indeed forced to start Jeff Tuel week 1. Geno Smith and Tuel are not good quarterbacks right now, but I think Smith at least has more upside. If Tuel was on any other NFL roster he probably would be among Saturday's cuts. He is a practice squad quarterback, not a NFL starter.

    He basically said they are preparing as if Tuel will start, because they are not sure if Manuel will be ready or not.

    Marrone said yesterday Manuel needs to be back to practice by Wednesday (Sept. 4th) to be able to start Week 1 vs. New England.

    It's a wait and see game until then.

    That's expected though, as you're not a Bills fan.

    Overly sensitive, persecution complexes, etc.

    Personally, I just don't think the writing is very funny, but I'm not going to get offended about it. We're a perennial 7-9 football team right now.
