The Bills quarterback returned to practice Wednesday and is slated to resume his starting role Sunday against the Dolphins if he is fully rehabilitated.

However, Peterman left the matchup with a head injury and third-stringer Joe Webb finished the game.

It's been a unusual and trying season for Buffalo Bills' quarterback Tyrod Taylor. He's going to have a procedure in the near future with Bob Anderson, one of the best in the world with what he does.


Glenn had been practicing the last couple weeks and it looked like he might be able to get back into the lineup, but it never happened.

Updating an earlier report, Tyrod Taylor (knee) is practicing in full for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

"Ultimately, as a team, we have a goal to do something special for this city, and that's first off to get back in the playoffs", Taylor said. However, McDermott said Benjamin remains day-to-day. "He's a good football player and just to get him ready to go for that offseason program similar to some of the other players we've done that with".


The Bills have had issues at quarterback no matter who's been under center with a passing attack that's failed to complement a LeSean McCoy-led running game that remains the offense's strength. We're always going to try to do the right thing by the player first. Matthews also needed thumb surgery after he injured it against Atlanta in Week 4.

"He's done a phenomenal job, I think, for a young player at that position", said McDermott. "In the end we decided it was best for us to move in this direction and he did as well".
