Yates is expected to hit training camp as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor and ahead of Nathan Peterman and Cardale Jones, The Buffalo News reports.

Reportedly, only Taylor has looked ready to run Rick Dennison's offense entering the season. That's been the case all along, but the Bills are hoping someone will step up and give the coaching staff some comfort should Taylor suffer an injury. So far that's not really happening, but Yates has more experience as a pro and also has experience with Dennison, putting him in the second spot in the pecking order for now. The situation could remain fluid as the youngsters behind him get more chances.
