Manuel had swelling on his left knee on Saturday morning and had an MRI. The examination revealed that he will need a minor scope done on the knee. Kevin Kolb will start the remaining preseason games while Manuel recovers. There is no word on his availability for Week 1.
The first-round rookie completed 26 of 33 passes for 199 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in two preseason starts.
Fantasy impact: The team doesn't seem worried about the procedure, but this does give Kolb a chance to get back into the starting QB competition after a poor showing Friday. Fantasy drafters should probably avoid this entire situation until we have a more clear timetable on Manuel's return. He's one of the few rookie quarterbacks who could make a fantasy impact in 2013.
