Buffalo Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb suffers head injury; Has concussion-like symptoms

Rough day for the Buffalo Bills starting offense.

After starting running back C.J. Spiller took a spike to the knee causing a nasty gash, quarterback Kevin Kolb also had to leave the game against the Washington Redskins after a head injury.

Kolb was reportedly struggling with communication which forced team doctors to diagnosis obvious concussion-like symptoms after taking a knee to the head.

It’s yet another blow for the Bills quarterback depth after rookie E.J. Manuel, who was likely to be named the starter, underwent unexpected knee surgery earlier this month.

In for the Bills third series will be Jeff Tuel, who probably didn’t expect to be in the market for such extended playing time when the preseason began as the Bills wanted to see what they had in both Kolb and Manuel.

Despite the concussion like-symptoms, it was yet another sub-par effort from Kolb for the short time he was on the field.

Manuel, who will be out for the remainder of the preseason could potentially return in the very early weeks of the season and could claim the starting gig from Kolb assuming the former Houston University product continues to struggle.
