Of course, Kevin Kolb didn't help himself by slipping on a wet rug, causing an injury just weeks before Buffalo's first preseason game.
Yes, Kolb and Manuel are in a quarterback competition. But many have already put Manuel in the starting role, and did so even before his NFL debut. Manuel looked impressive, for a rookie, in that debut, most notably taking his offense down the field for a score during a two-minute drill. But Manuel mostly used his check-downs in that outing, and didn't do much against a simple defensive scheme.
Kolb, on the other hand, didn't help himself while his back was already against the wall. In his debut Friday against the Minnesota Vikings, Kolb went 13-of-21 for 111 yards and an interception, the only one thrown by any of the three quarterbacks on Buffalo's roster this preseason. For Kolb, his second game, and Buffalo's third, will be most crucial. Manuel is out for the rest of the preseason, but has already made his presence felt so much, that a sub-par performance by Kolb in the most meaningful preseason game, could turn the starting role to Manuel once he returns.
