The Bills signed Joe Webb on Monday in a move that gives them a quarterback option in the event neither Tyrod Taylor nor T.J. Yates is cleared from the concussion protocol in time for Sunday’s game against the Jets.
Webb would back up Nathan Peterman if that’s how things play out and starting the fifth-round pick in the first game of the year certainly isn’t how anyone in Buffalo drew things up. On Monday, though, coach Sean McDermott said that he thinks Peterman is ready to handle the job.
McDermott said Peterman could start if needed and he's ready to go if it comes to that. The team is still holding out hope Taylor will be able to play, but as the story said, they will reach a point this week where they will have to make a choice.
