Report: Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could miss multiple games with MCL sprain
Tuesday October 13th, 2015

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor could be out multiple games with the MCL sprain he sustained during Sunday’s game against the Titans.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported the news Tuesday, adding that Buffalo will prepare backup E.J. Manuel to start against Cincinnati in Week 6.

Taylor reportedly suffered the injury on a horse-collar tackle against Tennessee. Bills coach Rex Ryan said Monday that Taylor was “beat up,” but did not indicate he would miss any time.

Taylor, 26, has been solid in his first year as an NFL starter, leading Buffalo to a 3–2 record with 1,097 yards through the air and nine passing touchdowns to four interceptions. He has also been a threat on the ground and keyed the Bills’ win over the Titans with his legs, rushing for 76 yards and a touchdown with running backs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams out.

Manuel, Buffalo’s 2013 first-round selection, could get another crack at the starting job after losing the camp battle. In 17 career games, he has thrown for 2,810 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
