Manuel ready to work

Salvatore’s was selling a sampler platter that could have served as a full meal.

EJ Manuel came to voluntary practices on Tuesday ready to work. That’s likely, in part, because he never stopped working.

“I am excited to be back,” EJ Manuel said. “I really didn’t take a true offseason necessarily straight up as far as taking time off. I might have took just one week after I left Buffalo to hang out with my family. Then after that it was pretty much just getting myself back healthy.”

Manuel, a first-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft struggled to stay healthy in his rookie season, suffering three knee injuries and missing six games. Manuel enters voluntary workouts as a full participant.

“I haven’t had any limitations throughout the whole offseason since it was time for me to start working out and running and throwing. No limitations at all, I feel great,” he said.

The Bills have missed the playoffs 14 straight seasons. Despite an underwhelming rookie campaign where Manuel won just 4 of the 10 games he played and threw for 1,972 yards, 11 touchdowns and 9 interceptions, the Bills front office has expressed confidence in Manuel.

“I don’t mind waking up at whatever time to get ready and get here to be prepared,” Manuel explained. “To know that they’re counting on me, I’m counting on them just the same way. We’re all in this together to try to get this team turned around.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
