As the Buffalo Bills (6-6) continue their preparations for Sunday’s 1 p.m. game vs. the Indianapolis Colts (3-9) at New Era Field, starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor’s availability continues to be up in the air.
Taylor suffered a patella tendon contusion on the Bills’ first offensive play of the Week 13 loss to the New England Patriots. While Taylor did not practice Wednesday, he was able to return and participate in individual drills Thursday while sitting out team drills.
Media members who observed Taylor participating in individual drills reported seeing a noticeable limp for Taylor, who wore a sleeve over his left knee/calf.

McDermott told the media Monday that "when healthy, Tyrod is our quarterback." After missing practice Wednesday, it is at least a positive sign for Taylor’s chances of starting Sunday that Taylor was back on the practice field, even in a limited capacity. Taylor is still considered day-to-day with his injury.
In other injury news, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee), running back Travaris Cadet (concussion), tight end Charles Clay (knee), left tackle Cordy Glenn (foot/ankle), cornerback Leonard Johnson (knee), fullback Mike Tolbert (hamstring), and defensive end Eddie Yarbrough (chest) returned to practice after being limited or held out during Wednesday’s session.
Tackle Seantrel Henderson (back), guard John Miller (ankle), and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (groin) were the only three players who did not practice Thursday.
