Bills' Manuel out vs Dolphins with knee swelling

Posted: Updated:

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Rookie quarterback EJ Manuel will miss the Buffalo Bills' game against the Dolphins because of swelling in his left knee, and Thad Lewis will start in his place.

Coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that Manuel would be ready to return for the season finale against the Patriots.

Manuel had a procedure on the knee after being hurt in second preseason game but returned for the opener. He then sprained his other knee against Cleveland on Oct. 3 and missed four games.

Lewis went 1-2, including a victory over Miami, in place of Manuel before getting injured himself. He went 21 of 32 for 202 yards and an interception in the 23-21 win over the Dolphins.

Bills receiver Stevie Johnson was also ruled out for Sunday. He is excused to be with his family in California after the death of his mother.
