There were also plenty of injuries to report from Head Coach Doug Marrone, so make sure you're up to date and who's missing some time."

Buffalo Bills practice report - ESPN AFC East Blog
"Bad day at the office for: Kolb. It's tough to compare him side-by-side to Manuel since Kolb is usually seeing the best unit from the defense, but Kolb continues to struggle at times with his accuracy and decision making. He's in the spotlight given the quarterback situation, so his mistakes are more magnified than those of other players."

"Sometimes you get guys that are overbearing and that think they know it all and want to tell you what to do" Kolb said. "I don’t do that to EJ. I want to be there for him when he says ‘shoot this is tough’. I don’t want to be there for him going ‘you should have thrown it here’. That’s all simple things you can write down from the coach. I just want to be here for things that maybe he just didn’t expect and I can tell him I’ve been through that before and just know that everybody goes through that."
