Taylor gets call for Pro Bowl, but cannot play


Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was named as an alternate for the 2017 Pro Bowl. Unfortunately, due to injury, his Pro Bowl status won't officially take effect.  League rules require alternate players to participate in the game to earn their Pro Bowl Status. 

Taylor led the Bills to a 7-8 record in the 15 games he started in 2016, which included a career single-season high in rushing yards (580) and rushing touchdowns (6) as Buffalo repeated as the league leader in rushing and yards per carry average.

He completed almost 62 percent of his passes for just over 3,000 yards with 17 touchdowns and just six interceptions. Taylor also had the first 300-yard passing game of his career in Week 16 against Miami.

Taylor was instrumental in Buffalo's offense ranking sixth in the league in red zone touchdown efficiency scoring with a success rate of 65 percent. The Bills also set a team record for fewest turnovers in a season with Taylor directing the offense.

Taylor played in the 2016 Pro Bowl as an alternate last season.
