Buffalo, N.Y. – The Buffalo Bills open the season on Sunday against the Jets, and it looks like their quarterback will be ready to go.

According to an ESPN report, Tyrod Taylor has been cleared from the concussion protocol and is expected to be the starter when the Bills take the field this weekend.

Taylor was injured in Baltimore during the first quarter of the preseason game against the Ravens. He had been progressing and was taking part in some drills Monday, but until he was cleared by the NFL, he would not be able to practice or play. That has been addressed.

Rookie Nate Peterman had been taking the first team snaps, and Sean McDermott said he was confident the fifth round pick could handle the job if needed. But McDermott has stressed that Tyrod is the quarterback and, when healthy, he will start. That appears to be the case for Sunday.
