Tyrod Taylor remains starter for Bills when healthy

New, comments

Tyrod will stay under center as long as he’s healthy

NFL: New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

After yet another pitiful performance from the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, particularly from quarterback Tyrod Taylor, there were cries to give Nathan Peterman another shot at the helm. However, head coach Sean McDermott did announce at his Monday press conference that “when healthy,” Tyrod is the starting quarterback for the Bills. Taylor is currently listed as day-to-day after suffering a patellar tendon contusion on Sunday and had to be carted to the locker room early in the fourth quarter.

Taylor went 9-for-18 for just 65 yards before leaving the game. He also threw a bad interception at the goal line. Peterman didn’t do much better, throwing for 50 yards on 6-of-15 passing.

With a game against the 3-9 Indianapolis Colts coming up Sunday, it still is not certain that Taylor will be healthy enough to play. If Taylor can’t play it will likely be the Peterman show again with QB/WR/ST extraordinaire Joe Webb as his backup.
