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."

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

Taylor, who was repeatedly grabbing at the area under his shoulder pad during the fourth quarter, was not made available to reporters after the game.

The Bills are not expected to have defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee) available for Sunday's game, and Ryan told WGR 550 on Tuesday that rookie guard John Miller (high ankle sprain) and wide receiver Marcus Easley (concussion) are not expected to play Sunday after leaving Monday night's game with their injuries.

Ryan believes it's "too early to tell" if defensive end Mario Williams (foot) will be able to play.
