ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor elected to have hernia surgery Thursday morning. He shared the news on his Snapchat, posting photos of himself in a hospital gown with a caption reading “Good Morning”
Taylor consulted with a doctor Wednesday, which led to his decision to undergo the procedure. If Taylor is unable to pass a physical before the third day of the new league year, which is in about nine weeks, the Bills will be on the hook for $27.5 million in injury guarantees to the quarterback.
The Bills released a statement on Thursday afternoon that they were informed of the decision Wednesday.
The Bills also announced, via Twitter, that the team was formally interviewing Anthony Lynn for the head coaching vacancy on Thursday. Lynn, who was promoted to offensive coordinator of the Bills just in September, was named the Bills interim head coach for the final game of the season.
Earlier this week Lynn interviewed with the San Francisco 49ers according to New 4 Sports Director Josh Reed.
