Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) completed 21 of 38 passes for 291 yards and three touchdowns Sunday against the Chiefs. He also rushed five times for 46 yards but fumbled twice, losing one.
Taylor focused on wideout Sammy Watkins in the first half, as the two connected six times for 158 yards and two scores. However, Watkins was held without a catch in the second half and the Buffalo Bills were unable to find a way back in the pivotal AFC matchup. It was the third time this season Taylor has thrown for three touchdowns, though two have come in losses. Up next is a Week 13 matchup against a Texans defense allowing the fifth-fewest passing yards per game this season, while also tying for fifth in YPA allowed.
Though Tyrod Taylor (right shoulder) was limited at practice this week, coach Rex Ryan said Friday that the QB is "ready to roll" for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Taylor, who relayed earlier this week, that he "kind of jammed" up his right shoulder "a little bit" Monday night against the Patriots, increased his throwing at practice Friday to the point that Ryan signed off on the QB's Week 12 availability, confirming that Taylor is "good to go." With Taylor a little banged up and the Chiefs' D on something of a roll, it wouldn't surprise us, however, to see the Buffalo Bills employ a ground-heavy attack on the road this weekend.
As expected, Tyrod Taylor (right shoulder) resumed throwing at practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
The report adds that Taylor, who noted Wednesday that he "kind of jammed" up his right shoulder "a little bit" Monday night against the Patriots, is expected to play Sunday against Chiefs, according to coach Rex Ryan. More on Taylor's Week 12 status no later than Friday, upon the release of the Buffalo Bills ' final injury report of the week.
Tyrod 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.
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 Taylor is ultimately unable to play, EJ Manuel will likely get the nod.
