Kevin Kolb will start against the Washington Redskins...by default.
EJ Manuel suffered a somewhat mysterious knee injury against the Minnesota Vikings in the second week of the preseason, which has given the veteran the nod under center for Buffalo.
The rookie had done enough to win the starting job, but after undergoing a "minor" procedure on his knee, the Bills have decided to keep him out of final two exhibition outings.
Kolb went 13-for-21 for 111 yards with no touchdowns and an interception against the Vikings, but his stat line was deceiving.
Six of Kolb's completions and 49 passing yards came on his second-to-last drive of the evening. In his final possession, Kolb had two completions for 43 yards.
Essentially, he ended much better than he started.
With Manuel being inactive for the third preseason game, it'll be worth monitoring how Kolb performs in his chance to "win back" the Bills starting job against Washington.
