Tyrod Taylor clears concussion protocol, will start against Jets
The Buffalo Bills will have their starting quarterback for their Week 1 game against the New York Jets, as Tyrod Taylor has officially cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott delivered the news while speaking to reporters on Wednesday.

Taylor left Buffalo’s third preseason game with a concussion after his head hit the turf on a sack. He returned to practice on a limited basis Monday, but he still had not been cleared by an independent neurologist at that time. Taylor has obviously since gotten clearance.
Expectations for the Bills heading into 2017 are not very high, though they have a good chance to get off to a strong start. The Jets are widely expected to be the worst team in football this season.
