PHOTO OF THE DAY
 EJ
Bills HC Doug Marrone announced yesterday that QB EJ Manuel will start Sunday against Pittsburgh. Manuel last saw again in Week Five against Cleveland before leaving the game in the third quarter due to injury. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills Head Coach on WGR 550
Q: EJ (Manuel) back on Sunday. Correct?
A: Correct. 

Q: How has he looked this week?
A: I’m going to tell you the same thing I told my wife. She’s like, ‘How’s he look? How’s he look?’ He’s been out for four weeks, so do you want me to make you feel good and say he’s been unbelievable, every throw has been on the money, outstanding and great, we’re going to go in and win? She said, ‘Yes I want you to tell me that.’ He’s had a good week. Obviously he’s not made every throw just coming back, but he’s really worked hard. Both he and Thad (Lewis) have done a nice job. We’re working towards that plan of perfection.
