Manuel, who suffered through knee injuries that derailed his rookie season, said on an interview with "NFL's Total Access" that he's at full health entering his second NFL training camp. "Obviously, I didnít want to go down with an injury because Iím a competitive player. I go hard each and every time I step on the field. It just so happened that I had to come down with an injury. I moved past it. Thankfully, I am 100 percent healthy right now. I feel like Iím stronger than I was last year, so Iím looking forward to moving on.Ē

Manuel, who underwent a knee procedure in January, was a full participant Tuesday as the Bills opened their offseason workouts, ESPN.com reports.

While the voluntary workouts are limited to strength and conditioning work, the important thing to note here is that Manuel appears past his knee issue. "No limitations," said Manuel, who missed the final two games of the 2013 season with a sprained LCL. "I feel great." Looking ahead to the coming season, Manuel will have an intriguing new wideout target to throw to in former Buccaneer Mike Williams, plus there's a solid chance that the team will also upgrade at tight end in next month's NFL draft.
Manuel is currently rehabbing after having undergone minor surgery to repair his left knee, which he injured in Week 15, wgr550.com reports.

The report adds that going forward, Manuel (who was limited to 10 games in 2013) plans to wear a knee brace and given that his latest surgery occurred in January, the QB figures to be available for the start of the Bills' offseason workouts.
Manuel (left knee, sprained LCL) said Monday that coach Doug Marrone told him he will enter 2014 as the team's starting quarterback, The Buffalo News reports.

2013

Throughout the entire draft season, it was quarterbacks Geno Smith, Ryan Nassib and Mike Glennon who received the majority of attention from the media. By late April, it was Manuel who got the last laugh as the only quarterback drafted in the first round. If Manuel holds on to job in Buffalo, he also has the best chance of any rookie to provide fantasy-relevant numbers due to his legs, but note that a knee procedure clouds his Week 1 status. Manuel, who rushed for 310 yards and four touchdowns in 2012 at Florida State, could easily eclipse those numbers in the NFL. New coach Doug Marrone also plans to install an up-tempo offense that could lead to more volume in the passing game.
