Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor “100 percent healthy”

New, comments

Taylor is entering his third offseason with the Bills without physical limitations.

Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor is “100 percent healthy” and feels “very explosive,” according to a piece published on the team’s website yesterday.

Taylor, who is participating in the team’s voluntary workouts this week, had surgery about three months ago to repair a groin issue that had been bothering him since the middle of the season. During his recovery, he notably posted videos of himself working out at the team’s facility (prior to the renegotiation of his contract that kept him in Buffalo through this season, at least).

Now, Taylor seems to be back to where he was at the start of last season. He even feels comfortable enough to test his limits, saying, “I actually ran with the skill guys today to try and push myself.”

Taylor’s physical health, especially when it comes to running, is more important to his game than to most other quarterbacks. The Bills have led the NFL in rushing in each of his seasons at the helm, while Taylor himself is the only player with 1,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards over the last two seasons.

Obviously, his health is going to be more important in the later part of the year than it is right now. Still, this is a good start to the campaign.
