Buffalo Bills' Kevin Kolb returns to training camp

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Kevin Kolb is back with the Bills and expected to practice tonight, but how much can we expect to see him in Sunday's preseason opener?

When last we saw Buffalo Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb, he was being led off of the practice field at St. John Fisher College by trainers after slipping and injuring his knee on a wet rubber mat. That was six days ago; since then, Kolb sat out a session with that knee issue, then was excused from camp to attend to a death in the family.

Now, Kolb is back at Fisher, reports BuffaloBills.com, and he is also expected to be back out on the practice field for tonight's practice. That session begins at 6:10PM tonight.

While Kolb has been away, rookie EJ Manuel - with whom Kolb is competing for the team's starting quarterback job - has been up-and-down working with the first-team offense. At this point, however, Manuel has a clear lead in the race - not just because of his solid camp performances (and Kolb's lack thereof), but simply because he has taken considerably more reps. When the Bills take on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon in each team's preseason opener, it's expected that Manuel will get the start (though that has not yet been made official).

We should have a better idea after tonight's practice about the quarterback situation for Sunday - not just in terms of the nominal starter, but also regarding how much Manuel, Kolb and Jeff Tuel are expected to play.
