Bills Sign Leinart

08.26.13 | Bob Price

The Buffalo Bills have announced that the team has signed free agent QB Matt Leinart.  Leinart fills an immediate need at Buffalo's injury-depleted quarterback position.  Starting QB Kevin Kolb left the Bills' game Saturday against Washington because of concussion-like symptoms. Leinart, the 2004 Heisman Trophy Winner at Southern California, was drafted by Arizona in the first round in 2006. After four seasons with the Cardinals, he spent 2011 with Houston and last year with Oakland. Kolb was injured in the first quarter when he was kneed in the helmet following an 8-yard scramble. Coach Doug Marrone said it was too soon to determine how much time Kolb could miss. The injury-prone quarterback has had issues with concussions in the past, having sustained two in his first six seasons.
