ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 10 (UPI) -- It seems like quarterback Tyrod Taylor is one of the few healthy players for the Buffalo Bills during training camp.

So when coach Rex Ryan saw Taylor flipping through the air for a practice-session touchdown Monday, he was not too pleased. Taylor scrambled inside the 10-yard-line before hurdling defenders and flipping in for six at St. John Fisher College.

"Are you kidding me?" Ryan told reporters Monday. "Please don't do that....He's got to take care of himself."

Ryan told WKBW's Joe Buscaglia: "I literally held my breath when Tyrod dove through the air."

Buscaglia also said that a Bills teammate yelled "Ty! What are you doing?"

Taylor missed two games last season after suffering a sprained MCL. 2015 was Taylor's first season as a full-time starter. He completed 242-of-380 passes, for 3,035 yards, 20 touchdowns, and six interceptions.

The Bills drafted Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

According to CBS' Jason La Canfora, the Bills are discussing a two-year, $30 million "bridge deal" with Taylor. The 27-year-old is due $2 million, with a $1 million playing time bonus, in the final year of a three-year contract.

On Aug. 1, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that there was "plenty of optimism" that the team and Taylor could reach a long term deal before the season.

The Bills face the Indianapolis Colts in its first preseason game Saturday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
