Brandon provided the update Wednesday during his weekly radio show on WGR-Buffalo.

Manuel has been cleared for contact and was scheduled to return to practice later in the day after missing four games with a sprained right knee.

Coach Doug Marrone was less definitive Monday when discussing the chances of Manuel playing against the Steelers (2-6). Marrone wanted to see Manuel and backup Thad Lewis in practice before making any determination. Lewis is set to return after missing one game with bruised ribs.

The Bills (3-6) have lost three of four since Manuel was hurt in a loss at Cleveland on Oct. 3.
