Tyrod Taylor placed on IR, will miss game against Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills former quarterback reunion tour is officially cancelled. Buffalo was supposed to see Ryan Fitzpatrick (Washington Football Team) and Tyrod Taylor (Houston Texans) in back-to-back weeks but now neither player is going to be available for their team when they come to Orchard Park.

On Tuesday, the Texans placed Taylor on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. The minimum stay is three weeks, meaning he won’t be available in Week 4 when Houston comes to town. With Deshaun Watson still on the shelf, Davis Mills is the starting quarterback for the Texans with Jeff Driskel as his practice squad backup. Mills is the Texans’ third-round pick from the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fitzpatrick dislocated his hip in Week 1 and was also placed on injured reserve. It will be Taylor Heinicke’s third NFL start this weekend.

If you’re looking for more former Bills QBs, they can’t see Nathan Peterman and the Los Vegas Raiders until the playoffs and A.J. McCarron’s Atlanta Falcons until the Super Bowl. Matt Barkley is on the Tennessee Titans’ practice squad.
