Peterman came into Sunday's 10-3 AFC wild-card loss to the Jaguars with 1:16 remaining in the fourth quarter in place of Tyrod Taylor (concussion) and went 1-for-3 for 14 yards with an interception. He also rushed once for four yards and recovered his own fumble. Peterman was pressed into duty when Taylor was hurt on the Bills' final drive. To his credit, he provided immediate results despite drawing the proverbial short straw in terms of game script, as he immediately was forced to scramble under heavy pressure with Buffalo's season on the line on a 4th-and-3 from their own 44. Peterman was able to get just enough for a first down and held on to the ball after momentarily losing the handle as he went to the ground. Following an impressive 14-yard connection with Deonte Thompson on the next play, however, matters began to derail for the rookie. He was whistled for intentional grounding on 2nd down and then saw another pass intended for Thompson get knocked in the air and intercepted by Jalen Ramsey on the following snap, a controversial play that survived instant replay review. In his defense, the 23-year-old was ill prepared experience-wise for such a critical postseason game situation, and in spot duty no less. He'll finish his first pro season having completed 24 of 49 passes for 252 yards with two touchdowns and five interceptions, as well having logged seven rushes for 23 yards, numbers generated across four regular-season games.
Peterman was cleared from the league's concussion protocol Monday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Peterman did not suit up for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins due to his concussion, but it appears that will be the extent of his absence, barring any setbacks this week. Expect Peterman to reclaim his role as the Bills' backup quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor.
Peterman (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Though listed as a full practice participant Thursday and Friday, the Bills won't rush the quarterback through the NFL's concussion protocol. With Peterman sitting out this week, Joe Webb is poised to serve as the backup to Tyrod Taylor (knee), who will reclaim starting duties following a one-game absence.
Peterman is still going through concussion protocol in advance of Sunday's game against the Dolphins, while teammate Tyrod Taylor (knee) is healthy enough to reclaim starting duties this week, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Peterman can still be cleared ahead of Sunday's kickoff, but for fantasy purposes, he's not in play this week. At best, he'll serve as Taylor's backup.
As of Thursday, Peterman remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. He's been able to work in a limited fashion, but with fellow QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) practicing fully, Peterman is poised to revert to backup duty if he gains medical clearance in advance of Sunday's game against the Dolphins. In the event that Peterman is unavailable this weekend, Joe Webb would slot in behind Taylor in Week 15.
