Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor was not present at the start of practice today, leaving backup EJ Manuel to take all of the first-team reps at the start of practice. It was later revealed by head coach Rex Ryan that he will not play Sunday.

Taylor is still sidelined due to a sprained MCL, which provided Manuel with the opportunity to start against the Cincinnati Bengals last week. The 25-year-old will start again this weekend at Wembley against the Jacksonville Jaguars as the former Virginia Tech quarterback’s situation hasn’t improve.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins didn’t participate in practice either, just like yesterday. However, he was present on the sidelines, and he did not need the support of crutches or a brace in order to stand.

This could have meant he was still an option to play at the weekend, but the 22-year-old did leave the game against the Bengals last week on crutches. Ryan ruled him out during his press conference today

LeSean McCoy started practice in individual drills due to his hamstring but was later worked in with the rest of the running backs. The 27-year-old was looking and feeling comfortable and should be able to play this Sunday.

Then there is the intriguing situation of Percy Harvin, who hasn't travelled to London due to personal issues. However, after recent comments by Ryan in a press conference today, retirement may be on the cards.

At the moment, initial sightings point towards another Manuel start under center for the Bills.
