Last season, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III sprained his LCL and only missed one game.
It sounds like the Buffalo Bills plan on being being more cautious with their star quarterback this season than the Skins were with RG3 in 2012.
According to WGR 550, Manuel could be out for the next 6-8 weeks, which is why they’re looking to sign a veteran back up to replace him for now.
According to a league source, Manuel could be back in as little as four weeks, but also has the possibility of missing anywhere from six-to-eight weeks with a LCL sprain. Earlier in the day, the Bills spoke about the specifics of their quarterback’s injury for the first time since his Monday morning MRI.
