Bills' starting QB still up in the air for Sunday; White, Glenn practice on limited basis

December 6, 2017

We still don’t know who will be the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Tyrod Taylor, who suffered a petellar tendon contusion in last Sunday’s game, will not practice Wednesday, head coach Sean McDermott announced.

If Taylor can’t go Sunday, rookie Nathan Peterman will get his second career start.  Joe Webb will take second team reps in practice while the team continues to evaluate Taylor’s status throughout the week.

McDermott said there’s no timetable to determine if Taylor can play Sunday or not and and that the team will “take it one day at a time.”

Along with Taylor, G John Miller, DE Eddie Yarbrough, and RB Travaris Cadet won’t practice Wednesday, while TE Charles Clay, OT Cordy Glenn, CB Tre’Davious White, FB Mike Tolbert, WR Kelvin Benjamin, and CB Leonard Johnson will all be limited.

Although able to practice in a limited capacity, White is still in the league’s concussion protocol following the late hit he took from Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski Sunday.  Gronkowski was suspended by the league for one game Monday.  He appealed the ruling, but it was upheld a day later.  He’ll miss New England’s next game, Monday night against the Miami Dolphins.  McDermott agreed it’s “encouraging” that White is at least able to practice on a limited basis while still in protocol.

Glenn has missed the team’s last four games with a foot/ankle injury and hasn’t practiced at all during that time.

Benjamin has been out the last two games after suffering a torn meniscus week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers. On Monday, McDermott said it was “looking good” for his chances to practice and eventually play this week.
