Buffalo (WKBW) Bills QB EJ Manuel says the knee injury that kept him out of the final two games of the regular season is "doing a lot better".
Manuel spoke with Eyewitness Sports Director Jeff Russo on Friday night from the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson, California. "I have plenty of time to really get it healthy, extremely healthy before April 21st which is when we have to be back for OTAs.", said Manuel. "I'm really going to take advantage of that".
Manuel suffered a sprained LCL in his left knee during the Bills win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on December 15th. He said during the teams locker clean out day that surgery was a possibility but wouldn't reveal if he had a procedure, or one scheduled when asked on Friday. "Knee is doing better. I will just leave it at that, a lot better", said Manuel.
Manuel says he will spend most of the offseason working out and rehabbing in Virginia and at the Bills facility in Orchard Park. He also plans to work with his personal quarterback coach Ken Mastrole in South Florida. Manuel expects to join members of the Bills wide receiving corps either in California or in Texas at some point over the next couple months to workout as a group.
