Wednesday: Day 14 of 18.

Highlight: The defense got the better of the offense in the last practice before Friday’s exhibition game. Linebacker Jamie Blatnick had two sacks.

QB watch: Coach Doug Marrone said Kevin Kolb will start at quarterback against the Vikings. EJ Manuel will go second in the QB rotation. On Wednesday, Kolb got 20 snaps, Manuel 22 and Jeff Tuel 14 in 11-on-11 work.

Kicking battle: Rian Lindell went 11 for 12 and Dustin Hopkins went 10 for 12. Hopkins mis-hit a kick from 47 yards that barely cleared the linemen.

Blackout: Friday’s exhibition vs. Minnesota is not sold out and will not be on local television.

Schedule: St. John Fisher College is closed to fans today. The team practices 8 to 11:10 a.m. Sunday and Monday.
