As the Buffalo Bills continue to chase a playoff spot with three games to go, their starting quarterback has been totally cleared for action by the team. Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced on Friday that Tyrod Taylor would be the starting quarterback against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Taylor had to miss last week's win over the Indianapolis Colts due to a knee injury, but after practicing in full all week long, the Bills felt comfortable enough with returning him to the starting lineup at New Era Field in a critical contest.

This will be the 12th game Taylor starts for the Bills this season. The only other game Taylor did not start for the team in a game was when the Bills elected to make rookie Nathan Peterman the starting quarterback against the Los Angeles Chargers.

As for Peterman, the rookie remains in concussion protocol -- despite being able to practice throughut the week. There stands a chance that he could be cleared through concussion protocol before the game on Sunday, but if he does not, Joe Webb will be the second-string quarterback for the second week in a row.
