Tyrod Taylor felt “explosive” in first post-surgery workout

The Bills were one of two teams to start their offseason workouts on Monday and that meant quarterback Tyrod Taylor was doing football activities for the first time since having groin surgery in early January.

Taylor was declared medically cleared in late February, but there was no way to put that to the test in a team setting. Monday’s workout was hardly a full-scale practice, but it did give Taylor the chance to do some things he hasn’t done since the surgery and he said it all went well.

“That was my first time actually sprinting and going out there and doing full-movement things,” Taylor said, via the Buffalo News. “But I feel great since the surgery. The doctors here and the training staff here have done a great job of getting me back to 100 percent, so I feel real good. I feel very explosive.”

The workout was also Taylor’s first since the hiring of coach Sean McDermott and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, who was on the Ravens’ staff when Taylor was in Baltimore. Taylor said that led to some familiarity when he first reviewed a playbook that he describes as player-friendly because it takes “advantage of each player’s strength.”

  1. If the Bills try to build around Taylor they will fail. Time to draft and develop a QB. Buffalo has only spent 2 picks on QB in the first two rounds in the last 20 years.

    Time to stop shopping for QB’s at the discount bin.

  2. Good job, Ball-Joint!

    Always liked you since your days at Va. Tech and hope you continue to improve in the NFL.

  3. No one ever questioned your explosiveness Tyrod. You’re a scat RB playing quarterback and have done fairly well in 2 seasons as a starter.

    Now lets start working on going through progressions, working the middle of the field and throwing WR’s open and trusting them to make plays.

  4. Explosive – LOL – here we go again. Just be careful not to restrain it while listening to yourself and other Bills’ reports yet again inevitably climaxing into another offseason victory.

  5. I am excited to see what Taylor brings to the field this season. His whole Offensive Line is back again, so hopefully the familiarity contributes to his game and we see a much more confident Tyrod… especially his short to medium passing game. If he takes the next step in that part of his game then watch out, because the rest of his work is strong. He excels in deep passes, throwing on the run & running the ball. It will also help his game to have other familiar faces in the huddle… Clay, Watkins, McCoy & Gillislee. I can’t wait for the season opener!

  6. The inconsistency he had last season is to be expected from a first year starter. If we judged Peyton Manning in his rookie season the way we do first year QB starters now, he never would have seen the field again. It’s a process. Certainly deserves another year as a full time starter to make more progress.

    Um..What? This is his 2nd year starting. Typical Bills fan, full of inconsistencies and completely inaccurate, just like this guy. Dude has 8 – 8 written all over him…if he is lucky. One trick, one read QB.

  8. I can’t believe how blind people are to this guy, he’s average at best.

    Just another year with no playoffs for the Billdo’s.

  9. I can’t believe how blind people are to this guy..

    YOU RIGHT, better then any of you clowns will think… GO BE A BROWN FAN
