Tyrod Taylor making progress; Nathan Peterman remains in concussion protocol

Coach Sean McDermott did not name a starting quarterback for Sunday's home finale against the Miami Dolphins when he met with the media on Wednesday, although he said Tyrod Taylor is making progress.

Taylor missed last Sunday's victory against the Indianapolis Colts because of a knee injury suffered on the first series the week before against New England. Taylor played through the injury before being taken out of the game in the fourth quarter.

McDermott has said that Taylor is the starter when healthy. McDermott said Taylor is expected to see most of the work in practice Wednesday and was listed as a full participant.

“I feel healthy, but still taking it one day at a time," Taylor said. "I felt great at practice today and expect it to get going forward."

Without Taylor, Nathan Peterman started against the Colts before he was injured. McDermott said Sunday that Peterman was in the league's concussion protocol after taking a hit to the head. McDermott said Wednesday that Peterman remains in the concussion protocol, although he was limited in practice and threw some passes.

Joe Webb came in and led the Bills to an overtime win in the snow against the Colts. He is the team's No. 2 quarterback at this point with Peterman sidelined.

On Monday, McDermott said that he was not concerned about the team's depth at the position based on the medical reports he had received, suggesting that Taylor could be ready to return.

He was asked Wednesday if the Bills had given any consideration to bringing in Colin Kaepernick. His answer: "No."
