Bills Links, 8/27: Tyrod Taylor concussed, Marcell Dareus disciplined

Things could have gone better for the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night against the Baltimore Ravens

It was a tough Saturday night for the Buffalo Bills, both on and off the field. Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was sent home prior to the game for violating a team rule - a story that was broken by CBS’ Jason LaConfora prior to the game.

Things did not get much better after kickoff, as starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor suffered a concussion during the first quarter of the game. Taylor will now enter the league protocol for concussions, with no timetable yet for his return.
