Bills QB Manuel Cleared to Play

Rick Stewart/Getty Images(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) -- Doctors fully cleared Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback EJ Manuel to return from a knee injury suffered in an Oct. 3 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Bills head coach Doug Marrone still hasn't declared who will start at quarterback Sunday when the team takes on the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Manuel seems to be doing well.

“It’s feeling a lot better,” Manuel said Monday. “Been working out on it the past week and had a good workout (Sunday) before the game. It felt really good. It was good to get out there in the cold too to move around in that to see how it felt and reacted after, so it’s doing good.”

Manuel started the team's first five games of the season, completing 56.7% of his passes for 985 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions.

With Manuel coming back, the team released quarterback Matt Flynn. Flynn was signed after Manuel was hurt.

This is the second time Flynn has been released this season - the first time by the Oakland Raiders.

Buffalo now has three quarterbacks on its 53-man roster: Manuel, Jeff Tuel and Thad Lewis.
