Bills say Tyrod 'elected' to have surgery this morning

Taylor first appeared on the Bills injury report with a groin injury in the week leading up to a game at Oakland on December 4.

"Bills QB Tyrod Taylor had a consultation visit yesterday with Dr. William Meyers and elected to have surgery this morning". Ian Rapoport of NFL Network estimates his recovery timetable is about six weeks, which would put him close to that pivotal date. "The Bills were informed late yesterday of this morning's procedure".

Once the Buffalo Bills were out of playoff contention, team higher-ups chose to bench Tyrod Taylor in the season finale (a decision that, according to Rex Ryan, played a role in his split from the Bills).

ESPN's Adam Schefter had previously reported Taylor's benching in Week 17 was a "business decision" so the Bills wouldn't have to pay that $30-plus million. However, the day after being benched, Taylor went public to question his future with the Bills. By March, the Bills have to decide whether to pick up the option on Taylor's contract, which would carry with it more than $30 million in guaranteed money.

She said of the breakup in her 2008 autobiography "Wishful Drinking": "When two celebrities mate, someone like me is the result". Fisher, known in Hollywood for her high-profile relationships, was actually only married once, and for just one year.

"Hopefully it's not as bad as they think it is", Taylor said.

Except, he was already nursing an injury, and on Thursday, Taylor made the decision to get it fixed - a decision that doesn't appear to have gone over well with the Bills. "Once we have the conversation and it's actually explained to me why it was done the way it was, we'll move forward from there".

If Taylor can not pass the physical by March 11, the Bills will be on the hook on the salary cap even if they don't want to keep him on the roster with his current contract. If he fails that physical, his guaranteed money, to the tune of $27.5 million, will be fully guaranteed, regardless of the club option being picked up.
