Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel returned to practice in Orchard Park, N.Y., Sunday after missing two weeks because of a left knee injury.
Manuel participated in warmups and individual drills during the portion of practice open to the media. He moved well and did not appear to show any effects from the injury. He was wearing a small brace on his left knee underneath his black spandex.
Manuel had been out since being hurt Aug. 16 in Buffalo’s second preseason game. He had what the team referred to as a ‘‘minor procedure’’ on the knee on Aug. 18. The Bills have remained hopeful that the first-round pick would return in time to start the team’s season opener against the Patriots. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
