It wasn’t an official timetable by any means but Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon did hint at a loose period of time when Manuel might be able to return from his knee injury.

“He’s here constantly going through the rehab process with our training staff” said Brandon in his weekly appearance on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550. ”Hopefully he’ll continue to progress. I don’t have a timetable at this point but hopefully we can get EJ back on the field as soon as possible. I know that’s what he wants too. Coach (Marrone) will address it later today. Hopefully we’ll have him back in the next month or so.”
