Coach Rex Ryan, though, believes his mobile signal-caller will be healthy enough to suit up Sunday against the frisky Kansas City Chiefs.
"I think Tyrod is going to play," Rex told reporters on Wednesday. "He feels better than he did. The doctors feel he's going to be just fine."
"I feel good," Taylor said on Wednesday. "I'm ready to go."
Taylor was all over the place against New England, passing for 233 yards but underthrowing a rash of targets and running for just a single yard off four attempts. That said, it was a gutsy performance considering his banged-up throwing shoulder.
With both teams sitting at 5-5 and in position for a wild card, Sunday's showdown has major playoff implications for Taylor's Bills.
Here's the rest of Wednesday's injury news:
- Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Packers with a rib injury. Running back Matt Forte (knee), wideout Alshon Jeffery (groin/shoulder), linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee) and safety Antrel Rolle (knee) are all questionable. Wideout Eddie Royal (knee) and running back Ka'Deem Carey (head) are out.
- Cardinals wideout John Brown (hamstring), cornerback Patrick Peterson (ankle), and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (chest) did not participate in practice. Running back Chris Johnson (knee), wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald (ankle) and Michael Floyd (hamstring), and guard Mike Iupati (neck) were all limited at practice.
