With less than 24 hours until game time, we are finally gaining some clarity on the quarterback situation in Buffalo.
NFL Media's Albert Breer reports EJ Manuel will start for the Bills. Taylor tried to convinced the coaches he could play, per Breer, but the knee just isn't ready.
Manuel received the majority of first-team practice reps the past few days.
Ryan explained last month that the coaching staff's confidence in Manuel was a factor in the Matt Cassel trade to Dallas.
After being benched for Kyle Orton last season and failing to beat out Taylor this past summer, this is Manuel's chance to prove the organization's newfound faith in his abilities isn't misplaced.
