Mike Vick had to wait until the end of August before landing a job last year. The veteran quarterback seems to understand he may be lucky if his phone rings again.

Speaking to reporters at Tyrod Taylor's annual youth camp, Vick expressed a desire to extend his pro career, but said he was content if this is the end.

"I'm 35, about to turn 36," Vick said, according to the Newport News Daily Press. "I've got one more dedicated season in my blood, if somebody needs me to come in. But I'm kind of happy where I am right now.

"I've got my health, I've got my kids, I've got my family. The game has done so much for me in terms of relationships, opportunities to take care of myself and my family. I'm just thankful. I give all the credit to God."

Fantasy Impact:

Vick appeared in five games and made three starts for the Steelers last season. He completed 40 of 66 passes for 371 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He suffered a hamstring injury in Week 6 and was eventually supplanted by Landry Jones for the backup job behind Ben Roethlisberger.

Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan expects quarterback Tyrod Taylor to be able to play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs despite a right shoulder injury that Taylor suffered late in Monday night's loss to the New England Patriots.

"We all know it’s a right shoulder thing," Ryan told WGR 550 in Buffalo on Tuesday afternoon. "I don’t know the particulars of what they call things or whatever. If we had the technical terms on it, you guys wouldn’t know it either. We’ll see how the week progresses how everything goes, but I think he’ll be ready to roll."

Fantasy Impact:

Ryan was ready to replace Taylor with backup E.J. Manuel on Monday, but Taylor told the Bills' coach that he was healthy enough to remain in the game.

Get ready for Tyrod Taylor time once again in Buffalo.

With an extra week's rest following the Bills bye week, Taylor said he's ready to reclaim his starting job after missing two games with a sprained ligament in his left knee.

"Yeah, I'm 100 percent. Feeling confident in going out there and playing on my knee," Taylor said following practice Monday. "I didn't have anything that limited me today in practice. And it felt good."

Coach Rex Ryan concurred with Taylor's prognosis, by saying: "We expect him 100 percent for this game. That's huge."

Fantasy Impact:

Taylor could get Sammy Watkins back at WR as well, however, that isn't a sure-thing just yet. It looks like he will have RB Karlos Williams back in the run game, however.

The Bills were back on the practice field Monday after having the entire bye week off last week, and they got some players back who had been injured or absent.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was back working with the offense, rotating reps during the individual portion of practice the media was allowed to watch.

Running back Karlos Williams appeared to be taking a regular amount of reps as he returned after missing three games with a concussion.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins took part in stretching with a helmet on, then walked inside the field house with a trainer to work during the individual session.

Fantasy Impact:

It's great news for the offense to get three of their stars back in the. Williams will likely still see snaps behind LeSean McCoy but was still a big part of the offense when McCoy was playing.

Bills think Tyrod Taylor returns after bye week

The Buffalo Bills have lost three of their last four games, dropping them to 3-4 on the season. They're now last in the division after looking strong to start the year, and much of that is due to the bevy of injuries they've had to overcome.

One key injury, along with LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins, the Bills have had to endure is one to Tyrod Taylor. He's missed the past two games due to a sprained MCL and the offense has suffered greatly in his absence.

Fortunately, he's expected to be back for the team's next game. Rex Ryan said this after the game Sunday.

"I'm confident Tyrod Taylor will be back after the Week 8 bye," Ryan said. "We’ll see where he’s at after we come back from the bye."

Fantasy Impact:

E.J. Manuel had a rough outing against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Sunday, tossing two interceptions and losing a fumble on three consecutive possessions -- two of which went for defensive touchdowns.
