Bills' injury update: Signs continue to point to Tyrod Taylor vs. Dolphins

The injury report keeps looking better for the Buffalo Bills' quarterbacks.

Starter Tyrod Taylor and rookie backup Nathan Peterman were both listed as full practice participants Thursday as the team continues to get ready for Sunday's must-win home game against the Miami Dolphins. Guard John Miller (ankle) was the only player not on the practice field as the Bills are in good shape with injuries for Week 15 of the season.

Peterman remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, but there was a hint that he might be available to play Sunday in that No. 3 quarterback Joe Webb wore a blue practice jersey as opposed to the red jersey a quarterback usually wears.

"He still played quarterback for us. He did some other stuff, normal special-teams work. No change really," coach Sean McDermott said.

McDermott would not totally commit to Taylor and Peterman being ready to play against the Dolphins, saying "I hope, but I won't know really until the end of the day tomorrow."

Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, meanwhile, was a limited participant in practice. It's far less certain that he'll be able to play against Miami.

"He's working," McDermott said. "He did a little bit more today than he did yesterday."

Defensive tackle Kyle Williams (groin), left tackle Cordy Glenn (foot/ankle), tight end Charles Clay (knee) and wide receiver Andre Holmes (neck) were also limited participants.

Running back LeSean McCoy was a full participant after being limited Wednesday because of a knee injury.

"We're just trying to be smart overall with his situation," McDermott said.

McCoy has 239 carries with three games to play, surpassing the 234 he had all of last season.
