Former Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who will cede his position to EJ Manuel for the final week of the 2016 season, practiced on Friday after sitting out Tursday on what was termed a “veteran’s day off.”

It also comes after Vic Carucci reported that Taylor may be heading to Philadelphia for a medical opinion on the groin injury he’s been dealing with for the last couple months. Taylor has been listed on the injury report for most of the post-bye week stretch of the schedule with the groin injury, but he’s always been a full participant in practice and it hasn’t caused him to miss any playing time this season.
He’s also apparently dealing with a hamstring injury, per Vic:
Tyrod Taylor is at One #Bills Drive. Absence from today's practice will be attributed to hamstring injury, I'm told.— Vic Carucci (@viccarucci) December 29, 2016
For what it’s worth, the injury report doesn’t mention his hamstring, and he doesn’t have an official injury designation this week.
However, don’t take that to mean that he’ll be playing this week.
Tyrod Taylor will most likely not dress this week, according to Anthony Lynn.— Matthew Fairburn (@MatthewFairburn) December 30, 2016
Manuel will start, and likely play most (if not all) of the game. Cardale Jones may see some action, which would be his first since the preseason. Whatever the case may be, Tyrod’s season is more than likely finished.
Whether that signals the end of his Bills career is something we’ll probably be discussing right up to the minute the team makes a decision on his future in Buffalo.
