Want to know where things stand with each Buffalo Bills
quarterback as of right freaking now?

Read forth ...

EJ Manuel

Update: Practiced today, but limited with injured right knee. ... Bills
coach Doug Marrone already has ruled out Manuel for Sunday because doctors haven't
cleared him.

Quote: "He looks good out there." -- Marrone

Thad Lewis

Update: Missed practice with rib contusions from multiple
hits in Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints. ... X-rays negative. ... Also
has the flu.

Quote: "Do we want him to play? Yes." -- Marrone

Jeff Tuel

Update: Shared first-team reps in practice today. ... Has
been backup quarterback all season, but leapfrogged by Lewis after Manuel got
hurt in week 5.

Quote: "I feel better about Jeff right now because I
know Jeff. ... The Cleveland
game is probably the worst situation you could ever have for him. He's a rookie
free agent. We all know that. But we do like what he does, and we like the
tools. In a perfect world, we'd love to have him on the practice squad and work
with him." -- Marrone

Matt Flynn

Update: Shared first-team reps in practice today. ... Still
learning the Bills' offense after being signed two weeks ago. ... Was scratched for
both games he has been on the roster.

Quote: "I'm in a competition with myself to learn the playbook and get myself as ready as I can. ... I feel very confident. Schematically, it's a West Coast system. I've been in a West Coast since my rookie year. I'm very comfortable with the football portion of it. To me, football's football. It's just a matter of learning how to call it." -- Flynn

Dennis Dixon

Update: Still on the practice squad. ... No intention to
promote him to 53-man roster. ... Marrone confirmed Dixon is not in the competition
to play Sunday.
