LONDON, ENGLAND (WIVB) — It is confirmed that quarterback Tyrod Taylor and wide receiver Sammy Watkins will not be playing in Sunday’s London Bills game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Backup quarterback EJ Manuel will be starting in Sunday’s game instead of Taylor.

Head coach Rex Ryan says Taylor’s knee is not 100% and is still sore.

Taylor did not participate in practice Thursday morning.

Ryan says Manuel had a great day throwing the ball during the Thursday practice and that he could hone in on his fundamentals this week.

Sunday’s game will air live at 9:30 a.m. on WIVB-TV and live online at WIVB.com/live.
