    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Taylor (right shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports. Per Rodak, Taylor relayed that he rested his shoulder Wednesday, but plans to resume throwing at Thursday's practice. Assuming that occurs without any setbacks, we'd expect the QB to remain on course to be able to play Sunday against the Chiefs.

    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Expected to play in Week 12

    Bills head coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday that Taylor (right shoulder/collarbone) should be able to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs, WGR 550's Mike Schopp reports. The Bills apparently got some good news Tuesday morning, as Ryan didn't sound nearly this confident in the immediate aftermath of Monday's game. Taylor repeatedly clutched at his right collarbone late in the contest, but the injury didn't actually appear to impact his accuracy or arm strength. If he's ultimately unable to play, E.J. Manuel will likely get the nod.

    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Uncertain for Week 12

    Bills head coach Rex Ryan said he is not sure if Taylor (right shoulder) will be ready for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, the Buffalo News reports. Taylor was visibly bothered by his right shoulder/collarbone toward the end of Monday's loss to the Patriots, yet he still managed to throw a perfect deep pass only a couple of snaps after suffering the injury. He never came out of the game but was clearly grabbing at his shoulder after nearly every snap. With the Bills not having media availability on Tuesday, there may not be another update available until Wednesday. E.J. Manuel is still the team's backup quarterback, with Josh Johnson serving as the No. 3.

    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Sneaks away with win

    Taylor completed 17 of 27 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown, with 12 yards on six carries in Thursday's 22-17 win over the Jets. Taylor played one of his lesser games in an otherwise impressive season, but he at least avoided any critical mistakes, which allowed the Buffalo running game, special teams and defense to lead the way to a victory. A lack of volume has arguably been the biggest issue for Taylor's owners, and while the Bills aren't going to deviate from their run-first mentality, a Week 11 road game in Foxboro will likely require more passing. Taylor had 242 passing yards, 43 rushing yards and four total touchdowns in a 40-32 Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: One incompletion in victory

    Taylor (knee) completed 11-of-12 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Dolphins. He also rushed 10 times for 44 yards. The Bills relied heavily on the running game Sunday, rushing 36 times for 266 yards and three touchdowns, which left little for Taylor to do on his own. He did throw a beautiful 44-yard touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins, who caught all eight of his targets for a career-high 168 yards and a touchdown, but only LeSean McCoy (two catches for seven yards) and Charles Clay (one catch for six yards) picked up receiving yards after Watkins. Taylor could have a bigger responsibility in Week 10, as the Bills will face off against a Jets defense Thursday that is much better against the run than the pass this season.

    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Back in action

    Taylor (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The return to action of Taylor provides the 3-4 Bills with a clear upgrade at QB and given that a half dozen NFL teams are on bye this week, he's an option for those looking for a fantasy signal-caller with some upside this week. It remains to be seen however, how much, if at all, Taylor's recent knee injury affects his mobility on Sunday.

    Bills QB Tyrod Taylor expects to play Week 9

    Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor (knee) declared himself "100 percent ready to go" for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Supporting te notion is coach Rex Ryan, who relayed Taylor is in line to be full-go at practice Wednesday. Taylor, who suffered a sprained MCL in Week 5, is thus firmly on track to start Sunday's game against Miami, assuming no setbacks as the practice week continues.

    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Looking good for Week 9

    Coach Rex Ryan expects Taylor, who appeared to practice fully Monday, to be 100 percent for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Sal Capaccio of WGR550 reports. We'll see what Taylor's practice work looks like once the team needs to apply an official designation starting Wednesday, but it looks like the Bills are going to get a nice upgrade at quarterback over what EJ Manuel has been giving the team.

    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Returns to practice

    Taylor (knee) is present at the start of the Bills' practice Monday, ESPN's Mike Rodak. Taylor seemed close enough to playing the week before the bye that we'd be pretty surprised if he wasn't leading the Bills this week against the Dolphins, especially given that the team is a disappointing 3-4 and received some terrible quarterback play in the Week 7 London loss to the Jags.

    Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Still dealing with knee soreness

    Coach Rex Ryan relayed that while Taylor "did a nice job" at practice Wednesday, while splitting QB reps with EJ Manuel, Taylor "still has some soreness" in his knee at this stage. As a result, Manuel will make his second consecutive start this Sunday when the Bills take on the Jaguars at Wembley Stadium in London. Considering Taylor's recent progress, with the Bills on bye next week, a Week 9 return against the Dolphins seems like a plausible outcome for Taylor
