Buffalo Bills starting QB will be a game time decision

Tyrod Taylor’s health will be the deciding factor

In his press conference Friday, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced that he didn't know who would be starting under center against the Indianapolis Colts. That will be a game time decision. The main factor in his decision will be the health of the incumbent starter, Tyrod Taylor.

Taylor was injured on the first play of last week’s game against the New England Patriots. He played the majority of the game, but couldn't finish and Nathan Peterman ended the game. Taylor has not been a full participant at all this week. On Thursday he made his first appearance, but was only active for individual drills. McDermott stated today that “they're going to see how it goes today at practice on if he can do team drills.” He also left the door open that Taylor could dress, but that if he is limited, Peterman would get the start.

On Monday McDermott told media that "when healthy, Tyrod is our quarterback." It looks like Bills fans will have to wait until Sunday to see if Tyrod is healthy and if McDermott holds true to that stance.
