The Buffalo Bills are suddenly looking for a quarterback after veteran Kevin Kolb joined rookie EJ Manuel on the injury list Saturday.
The Bills will soon work out veteran free agents Matt Leinart and John Beck, according to multiple reports. With only one healthy quarterback, Buffalo is scrambling for replacements to fill out the depth chart.
Kolb left Saturday's 30-7 preseason loss to the Washington Redskins with concussion-like symptoms and Manuel is out for the remainder of the preseason with a knee injury. That leaves undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel as the Bills' only quarterback.
Manuel's return is questionable for the Bills' regular-season opener on Sept. 8 against the New England Patriots and Kolb's status is unknown.
Leinart played for the Oakland Raiders last season. In April, the former Heisman Trophy winner and first-round draft choice lost out to Brady Quinn in a tryout for a backup job with the Seattle Seahawks.
Beck's last NFL action came with the Washington Redskins in 2011. The former second-round draft pick has started seven games in the NFL. Four of those came as a rookie in 2007 with the Miami Dolphins
