Bills QB Taylor aiming to return Sunday


The Sports Xchange

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor is pushing to start Sunday’s game when the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars square off in London.

Taylor missed the Bills’ loss last week with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

“My body feels good,” Taylor said Tuesday in London at a team public relations function. “I’m looking forward to getting back out there practicing.”

Taylor was injured Week 5 in a win over the Tennessee Titans. He said the injury has “progressed each and every day.”

The Bills began last week’s game without Taylor (knee), running back Karlos Williams (concussion), and wide receiver Percy Harvin (hip). During the game they lost wide receiver Sammy Watkins (ankle), who had just returned from a two-game absence, wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (ribs), and offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson (concussion). On defense, tackle Kyle Williams (knee) went down in the fourth quarter, joining safety Aaron Williams (neck), who is on short-term injured reserve.

“It hurts,” said wide receiver Robert Woods. “That’s a lot of weapons who went down.”

Although it’s early, it looks as if Watkins, Harvin and Kyle Williams will definitely be absent for the game in London against Jacksonville. Goodwin was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
