In what could be his final practice in a Bills uniform, Tyrod Taylor rejoined his teammates Friday after having a veteran’s day off Thursday.
Taylor won’t start under center when the team travels to New York to face the Jets Sunday, but interim head coach Anthony Lynn has yet to determine if he will be active for the finale.
EJ Manuel will start at QB for Taylor, who has an injury guarantee in his contract that would force the team to pay roughly $30 million if he were to get hurt severe enough to last into the new league year in March. That would be the case even if the Bills decline to pick up his full contract extension. If the Bills decide they don't want to exercise the extension, he will become an unrestricted free agent and free to sign with any other team.
Taylor has been listed on the team’s practice participation report every day about a month with a groin issue. However, he has always been a “full participant,” not missing a practice or game.
Linebacker Zach Brown was not seen on the field for the brief media-available portion of practice. Neither were tackle Cordy Glenn (back) or cornerback Stephon Gilmore (concussion), who have missed practice all week.
