Quick Hits: Taylor to be a game-time decision


Taylor to be a game-time decisionBills quarterback Tyrod Taylor will practice for a second straight day on Friday, but again he will not be a full participant. His availability to start Sunday remains very much up in the air, but head coach Sean McDermott is not ruling him out for the Colts game.

"We're still working through that," said McDermott. "Tyrod will be limited today. He'll continue to work. It's one of those things that will end up being a game time decision."

Taylor was limited to just individual position drills on Thursday. There is a chance he takes some reps during the team portions of practice here on Friday. McDermott outlined some of what he'll be keeping an eye on in practice from Taylor today.

"Just feedback and how he's feeling and the pain," he said. "His ability to function, just like it is with most any position. It's just the give and take of the communication really and then being able to put my eyes on it and seeing him execute."

McDermott also said come Sunday, if Taylor is not fit to start the game there is the possibility that he could remain active and serve as the backup to Nathan Peterman.

"I think every day he gets a little bit better," said McDermott of Taylor. "Like any injury there's some soreness after the game and as the week wears on they get a little better every day."

Cadet out of concussion protocolAt the start of the week, Buffalo had a pair of players in the concussion protocol in Tre'Davious White and Travaris Cadet. On Thursday, White was medically cleared and will start on Sunday against the Colts.

On Friday, Cadet followed suit.

"He's cleared the protocol and he should be ready to go come game time," said McDermott of the running back.

Cadet participated in practice on a limited basis Thursday, and was in stage four of the return-to-participation protocol. He obviously passed the last remaining tests to earn medical clearance for Friday's practice and Sunday's game.

Benjamin, Williams both looking good for SundayKelvin Benjamin looks like he'll be good to start on Sunday after a two-game absence.

Coach McDermott sounded very encouraged about the big wide receiver being available this weekend against Indianapolis.

"I feel pretty good," said McDermott of Benjamin's chances of playing. "There are a bunch of guys who are really progressing toward playing."

Included in that group is Kyle Williams. The defensive tackle did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday with a groin injury, but is expected to start Sunday.

"Kyle, I would put on the upper end of that category where he was a little bit sore the other day," McDermott said. "But I expect him at this point to play."

Both Benjamin and Williams' status for the game will be known Friday afternoon when the final injury report is released.
