McDermott updates status of injured Bills

December 11, 2017

Bills’ head coach Sean McDermott updated the media on the status of several injured players Monday, one day after the team’s 13-7 overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday afternoon:

QB Tyrod Taylor, who was inactive with a knee injury: 
Has "made progress over the last couple of days.”  McDermott called him day-to-day as of now.  The head coach said “there was a chance” Taylor was going to play Sunday, but wasn’t able to.  The decision was mostly health related but the field conditions were a part of the equation, as well.  McDermott reiterated that Taylor is the team’s starting QB when healthy.

QB Natan Peterman, who left Sunday’s game with a head injury:
Still in concussion protocol.

WR Kelvin Benjamin, who left the game with a knee injury and briefly returned:
Still being evaluated. Too early to tell what his status and situation is right now.

CB Leonard Johnson, who missed the game with a knee injury:
McDermott said he "was close to playing" Sunday and will see how this week goes.
