Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor suffered what appeared to be a significant injury during Sunday’s wild-card playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Taylor took a hit and was down for some time on the field during the end of the fourth quarter. Bills and Jaguars players can be seen taking a knee around him.

The extent of the injury is not known. However, Taylor appears to have hit his head on the way down, and was being treated for a concussion, his coach said, according to NFL.com.
