The Buffalo Bills have placed QB Kevin Kolb (concussion), FB Drew Smith (undisclosed) and WR Brad Smith (rib) on Injured Reserve, ending their 2013 seasons.
Sun, 25 Aug 2013 17:16:50 -0700
The prospect of Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel starting the regular season opener against the New England Patriots Sept. 8 looms as a distinct possibility with QB EJ Manuel (knee) recovering from surgery, and QB Kevin Kolb (concussion) facing a lengthy absence following another concussion.
Fantasy Tip: If he did get the starting nod, Tuel would not be someone to depend upon for fantasy purposes unless you're absolutely desperate for a quarterback in a format which requires starting two signal callers.
Sun, 25 Aug 2013 17:15:55 -0700
Buffalo Bills WR Brad Smith could shift back to the quarterback position, if needed, according to head coach Doug Marrone. The head coach also mentioned RB Fred Jackson as an emergency quarterback possibility, with QBs EJ Manuel (knee) and Kevin Kolb (concussion) dealing with injuries.
Fantasy Tip: The chances of Jackson or Smith under center is lessened a little with the signing of Matt Leinart, and acquisition of Thaddeus Lewis. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see either see snaps in the preseason finale just in case.
Sun, 25 Aug 2013 17:15:15 -0700
The Buffalo Bills are concerned that the QB Kevin Kolb's (concussion) might be career-ending, and they're proceeding with that in mind.
Fantasy Tip: The team moved to sign Matt Leinart and trade for Thaddeus Lewis Sunday, so they are serious about adding arms before the regular season opener. Kolb might not play another down.
Sat, 24 Aug 2013 17:37:33 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the team will look to sign a quarterback because of the injuries to QB Kevin Kolb (head) and QB EJ Manuel (knee).
Sat, 24 Aug 2013 15:00:20 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb (head) left the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24, because of concussion-like symptoms and will not return.
Mon, 19 Aug 2013 10:24:03 -0700
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring) said he can still feel his hamstring injury while running routes but still expects to play in the team's third preseason game. Johnson participated in practice Monday, Aug. 19, and appeared to have chemistry with QB Kevin Kolb.
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 20:22:35 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb made the start in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, against the Minnesota Vikings, completing 13 of his 21 passes for 111 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. Rookie QB EJ Manuel replaced him and completed 10 of 12 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions.
Fantasy Tip: All of the votes aren't tallied, but we can likely make a call in this race. Manuel appears to be the winning candidate for the starting job in Buffalo. Still, Manuel is only worth a look as a low-end QB2, or as a second starter in leagues which require two starting signal callers.
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 11:36:46 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb gets the start in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, against the Minnesota Vikings, and he is focused on playing well and not so much the battle with QB EJ Manuel for the starting job. "I just think you can't focus on that stuff," said Kolb. "You have to focus on what can I do as a quarterback? How do I get better? And you've got to be coachable."
Fantasy Tip: Kolb is believed to be on the outside looking in for the starting spot, but he could go a long way in making the decision hard for head coach Doug Marrone if he has a super performance Friday. Keep an eye on the battle, but still keep Manuel ranked up the fantasy cheat sheet for now.
Wed, 14 Aug 2013 17:34:23 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday, Aug. 14, that QB Kevin Kolb will start the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, against the Minnesota Vikings.
Fantasy Tip: It isn't official, but all indications are that Kolb is well behind EJ Manuel for the starting job at this point. He'll need a tremendous game Friday, and more good showings in practice and future games to tilt things in his favor. Fantasy owners need not bother with Kolb at this point, but monitor the situation just in case he makes a comeback in the race.
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 17:10:59 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday, Aug. 13, that if a clear quarterback winner does not emerge, he will name a starter 10 to 12 days before the regular season opener. QB EJ Manuel looked good in his preseason debut Sunday, Aug. 11, and QB Kevin Kolb (knee) has been banged up and dealing with personal issues, too.
Fantasy Tip: It appears the job is Manuel's to lose, but it is also very early in the process. The two combatants have at least two more preseason games to show what they can do, and perhaps make Marrone's decision a little more difficult.
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 05:15:01 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb (knee) is still walking with a slight limp and had trouble moving around the pocket Monday, Aug. 12, due to a sore knee.

Sat, 10 Aug 2013 08:18:53 -0700

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 12:04:28 -0700

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 21:21:31 -0700
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb (knee, personal) missed an intrasquad scrimmage Monday, Aug. 5, due to a death in the family. Head coach Doug Marrone said Kolb intended to play if his injured knee would have allowed it.
Mon, 05 Aug 2013 13:32:04 -0700

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 17:09:07 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday, July 31, that while QB Kevin Kolb needs to make better decisions, but so far the team is pleased with his performance in training camp. "We are very happy with Kevin. He's done a nice job, it's the execution where he wants to go. Does a good job," Marrone said.
Wed, 31 Jul 2013 10:14:27 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel worked with the first-team offense during practice Wednesday, July 31, after spending most of his time with the second unit to begin training camp. QB Kevin Kolb led the first unit for the final two 11-on-11 periods, however.
Mon, 29 Jul 2013 22:56:20 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb has been praising rookie WR Robert Woods. Kolb says Woods has been impressive, including his route running patience and savvy. "Stud. I mean, legitimately a stud," Kolb said Monday, July 29. "I've bragged on him a lot in the last two days and really through camp."
Fantasy Tip: The wide receiver jobs behind Stevie Johnson are wide open, so Woods could make a huge impact right out of the gate with a strong training camp and preseason. Fantasy owners should monitor the situation closely. If Woods wins a starting job, he would be worthy of a WR3/4 or flex spot in leagues of 12 or more teams.
Mon, 29 Jul 2013 12:04:43 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said he likely will name the starting quarterback around 10 days before the start of the regular season. Marrone did not say whether QB Kevin Kolb or QB EJ Manuel will start the first preseason game.

Sat, 27 Jul 2013 09:09:43 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said QB Kevin Kolb and EJ Manuel will split reps with the first-team offense once training camp begins.
Fri, 12 Jul 2013 10:06:02 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone will probably decide whether Kevin Kolb or EJ Manuel will start at quarterback by the close of the preseason game, or maybe the next one at the latest.
Fantasy Tip: Neither is a viable fantasy backup quite yet, but Manuel has more upside if he can catch on quickly and take over. This offense could hide QB deficiencies, but the receiving game will boast a lot of inconsistent performances, even sometimes from steady WR3 Stevie Johnson.
Fri, 05 Jul 2013 12:31:00 -0700
The Buffalo Bills likely will not sign another quarterback before training camp because they want to give QBs Kevin Kolb and EJ Manuel as many reps as possible during camp.
Thu, 04 Jul 2013 21:20:25 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said he does not believe his experience in the NFL gives him an edge in the quarterback competition with QB EJ Manuel. "I wouldn't say it's an advantage against EJ, but it's an advantage for me personally to be able to lean back on those type of things and those type of situations," Kolb said. "You don't have ri stay up at night worrying about things that I did when I was a young player."
Wed, 03 Jul 2013 13:03:08 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said he is not focused on the quarterback competition with QB EJ Manuel, but rather his own personal game as he learns a new offense. "Me personally I'm not even concerned with it," he said. "I haven't even thought about it really and that's the honest truth because I have so much to address personally as a player coming into a new system. I know EJ probably does as well being a rookie. That's kind of the way I would feel most guys are approaching it right now."
Wed, 03 Jul 2013 12:27:29 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said all quarterback competitions are different, and that the competition later this month with QB EJ Manuel will give him a unique perspective. "They are all definitely different," said Kolb of the quarterback competitions he's been a part of. "This one right now we're all new to the system, so we're trying to just pick it up from our own game standpoint. Just trying to pick it up mentally, trying to pick it up physically. Making sure we're on our own P's and Q's and making sure our details are right."
Fri, 31 May 2013 11:26:08 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone has praised rookie QB EJ Manuel during organized team activities. "From my standpoint ... EJ Manuel has done better (as a rookie) than any of the other organizations I've been a part of," Marrone said.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that Manuel has been working with the third-team offense during OTAs this month, he could surpass both Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson later this summer if he performs well. Manuel's value will be highest in dynasty leagues in his rookie season. Relying on whichever Bills passer wins the job as a backup isn't recommended.
Thu, 30 May 2013 06:05:15 -0700
Buffalo Bills QBs Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson are splitting reps with the first team in OTAs, and QB EJ Manuel is working as the third-stringer.
Fantasy Tip: It's still premature, but we could see Manuel leapfrogging both of them by Week 1. Kolb and Jackson have very little fantasy value, and Manuel probably doesn't have a lot outside of dynasty leagues in his rookie campaign, either. Monitor the situation and see how well he picks up the offense.
Mon, 20 May 2013 10:14:07 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said it has been easy to pick up the team's offense, which he said is less complicated than the system he learned at Florida State. "The funny thing is it's easier to learn than the offense I had at Florida State," he said. "It's a true West Coast-type progression offense. That's really what I wanted when I was coming through the pre-draft process. I wanted something that I could just go in and say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, check it down and run it. That's it, it's that simple. I love it." Manuel has spent extensive time working with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
Fantasy Tip: Manuel will compete with Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson for the starting QB job this summer. If Manuel wins it, consider him a weak backup quarterback in just his rookie season. Manuel could be a decent signal caller in the long term, but Buffalo will need a proven receiver opposite Stevie Johnson in order to make a significant impact.
Mon, 13 May 2013 13:22:28 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Tarvaris Jackson received the first snaps during organized team activities Monday, May 13. He was followed by QB Kevin Kolb and EJ Manuel. Head coach Doug Marrone said the quarterback rotation likely will change daily.
Wed, 01 May 2013 09:31:24 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone indicated QBs EJ Manuel, Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson will split reps with the first-team offense once offseason workouts begin.
Sat, 20 Apr 2013 09:39:34 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said the team's up-tempo offense will help the younger players because they will not have to think as much. "The best thing to me that tempo does," Kolb said, "is that it relaxes the mind of the players and they can just do what they've been doing their entire life. A big problem, especially for young players at this level, is they slow down because they're thinking too much. If you get them into a no-huddle, you get them into a quick style of offense, then they're just reading and reacting. When you're reading and reacting you're playing at your highest level and that's when you make a lot of great plays."
Wed, 10 Apr 2013 12:32:08 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb does not think he gets sacked too much, and talked about how he should not have that label placed on him. "No, because the label only came from really my stint in Arizona," Kolb said at Monday's introductory news conference at One Bills Drive. "When I was in Philly for however many games I started -- I don't even know -- I can remember going multiple games without maybe getting hit four or five times."
Tue, 09 Apr 2013 08:14:21 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the addition of QB Kevin Kolb does not mean the team will not look at quarterback prospects in the NFL Draft. "I do not think it really is going to change the philosophy on the draft," Marrone said. "I think that when the position comes whatever is best for our team to get better I think we will go ahead and choose that player whoever it may be. I think that rather than trying to, and I do not want to speak for Buddy (Nix) or anyone else in the organization, rather than trying to reach or go somewhere that you do not want to go you bring the best players you can bring in and you make those guys compete. You are a better football team."
Tue, 09 Apr 2013 07:31:07 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said he believes he can help the team win a Super Bowl title. "I'm here to win the Super Bowl. Period," Kolb said.

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 11:17:36 -0700
Buffalo Bills QBs Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson may compete for one roster spot during training camp if the team drafts a quarterback that they believe can be their franchise quarterback. Kolb's contract is expected to be worth up to $13 million over two years, and there is minimal downside if the team chooses not to keep him.
Sun, 31 Mar 2013 12:19:21 -0700

Sat, 30 Mar 2013 18:24:09 -0700
The Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with free-agent QB Kevin Kolb (Cardinals) to a two-year deal worth as much as $13 million.
Fantasy Tip: Kolb likely will compete with Tarvaris Jackson and possibly a draft choice for the starting quarterback position. Even if he wins the starting job, he would not be more than a weak No. 2 or a No. 3 fantasy quarterback.
Sat, 30 Mar 2013 16:08:55 -0700

Fri, 29 Mar 2013 10:46:01 -0700

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 12:18:09 -0700
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan did not rule out the possibility of the team signing free-agent QB Kevin Kolb (Cardinals) at some point this offseason. "If we think that's something that will help competition, I'm sure that's something we'll look at," Ryan said.
Tue, 19 Mar 2013 07:47:35 -0700
