Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott met with the media on Friday and mentioned that quarterback Tyrod Taylor will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Taylor did not practice on Wednesday, and practiced on a limited basis on Thursday and Friday due to a knee injury suffered against the New England Patriots last week.

In the event that Taylor is not healthy enough to start under center, rookie Nathan Peterman would get his second career start. Peterman was pulled after one half into his first career start, where he threw five interceptions against the Los Angeles Chargers.

McDermott acknowledged that he will not play Taylor if there is a chance he could re-injure his bruised knee.

"We're not going to put him out there if it's something he could hurt worse," McDermott said.

McDermott stated that guard John Miller, who is dealing with an ankle injury, will not play on Sunday. McDermott said that he feels "pretty good" about the chances of wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin returning to the lineup on Sunday. McDermott also stated that running back Travaris Cadet has cleared concussion protocol, while the team is still evaluating the progress of offensive tackle Cordy Glenn, who has practiced on a limited basis this week. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams is also questionable for Sunday's game as he has not practiced in practice for the past two days with a groin injury.
