Undrafted free agent Jeff Tuel is expected to start at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills to open the season against the New England Patriots. It would be the first time an undrafted free agent quarterback opened the season as a team's starter since 1967.

Let's let that sink in for a moment.

Tuel may start, but the more important question is when will first round pick and the franchise's future, EJ Manuel, be ready to play? The possibility exists Manuel will open the season as the Bills' starter.
