The Buffalo Bills' quarterback room remains a partially filled chamber.

Coach Sean McDermott told reporters Tuesday that both Tyrod Taylor and T.J. Yates remain in concussion protocol.

Taylor exited the team's third preseason game Saturday after getting his head slammed to the turf on a sack.

The Bills head into Thursday's preseason finale with rookie Nathan Peterman and newly signed Keith Wenning as the only two healthy quarterbacks on the roster. McDermott noted he's mindful of exposing Peterman in the fourth preseason game, as the fifth-round pick could be the starter Week 1, per Chris Brown of the team's official website.

In other Buffalo injury news, McDermott said he's cautiously optimistic receiver Jordan Matthews will be ready for the season opener. Matthews has been limited in practice with a chest injury and has not been cleared for full contact.
