Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb won’t retire Doug Marrone says


Buffalo Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb was considering retirement following a concussion. This concussion was his third in his career at least, and has removed him from the quarterback competition with E.J. Manuel.

Manuel is also out following a procedure on his knee, that has forced the Bills to name Jeff Tuel their starting quarterback, sign Matt Leinart and trade for Thaddeus Lewis.

Head coach Doug Marrone is disputing reports that Kolb is mulling retirement.

“I had a conversation with Kevin this morning, and he’s not even near close to that process or that type of decision,” coach Doug Marrone said Monday, via the NFL.com. “I do think he’ll be out for some time. … These things can be part of the thought process at the right time. I’m just saying it’s not part of the process for him at this time.”

This injury and the resulting moves to bring in two quarterbacks could be telling of Kolb’s future with the team.
