E.J. Manuel is now recovering from knee surgery, and Jeff Tuel has been named the tentative starter for Week 1 against the Patriots. What a way to start your professional career, right? Tuel is an undrafted rookie for Buffalo.

Following the injury train, Mark Sanchez suffered an injury to his shoulder during the preseason game against the New York Giants.

Although the team won 24-21 in overtime, Geno Smith proved his youth by throwing three interceptions and stepping out of the back of the end zone for a safety.

In Denver, Montee Ball is taking first-team snaps at running back following Ronnie Hillman’s third fumble in the same amount of preseason games.  What this means for Hillman’s future as the Broncos’ starting running back is yet to be determined.

Just as Danny Amendola returns to practice for the Patriots, Gronkowski was seen performing agility training and catching passes, while working with a strength coach. Things are looking up in New England.

Back to bad news. New Orleans’ outside linebacker, Will Smith, is out for the season with a hurt knee as the Saints continue their battle on the injury front. DE Kenyon Coleman and ILB Jonathon Vilma have both already suffered season-ending injuries.
