Bills rookie QB E.J. Manuel told reporters on Monday that he “isn’t sure yet” if his recent knee injury will require offseason surgery.
Manuel is hoping that physical therapy and strength training will be enough to rehab his injured knee in the coming months.
HC Doug Marrone informed Manuel that he will be the team’s starting quarterback in 2014, which comes as little surprise given that he was taken in the first-round last year.
However, should he need another surgical procedure, it would be the second time he’s undergone the knife since entering the NFL.
Manuel showed some ability this season, but you could actually make the case that Thad Lewis was more effective for them. Manuel’s rookie season totals include completing 180 of 306 pass attempts (58.8%) for 1,972 yards to go along with 11 passing touchdowns and nine interceptions.
