EJ timetable tricky after preseason

Posted by Chris Brown on August 18, 2013 – 3:00 pm

Doug Marrone was hesitant to lay out any timetables for EJ Manuel’s recovery beyond the remainder of the preseason. One could understand why.

Even though Manuel stands a good chance of being day-to-day by the close of the preseason Marrone wasn’t going to go beyond that.

“I think what we’re going to do is let’s not talk about the timetable until we get through this preseason. I understand he’s not going to be here for the preseason, but any time after that my expectation is he’ll be day to day after that.”

Marrone also has to take a wait and see approach on whether the QB competition, which is now on hold, can resume when Manuel is back practicing.

“I don’t know,” he said. “There are a lot of variables that go into that. How Kevin is doing and how he is playing. How EJ comes back from the time off, so there’s a lot of speculation on that. I think I’ll be able to answer that question once we get to the day to day and he’s out here practicing.”
