Josh Allen to be limited in Bills practice, Derek Anderson still in concussion protocol

The first injury update of the week for the Bills quarterbacks looks a lot like the one that ended last week.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott said at his Wednesday press conference that rookie Josh Allen will take part in practice on a limited basis. Allen practiced last Friday for the first time since injuring his right elbow in Week Six and McDermott didn’t set any expectations for what kind of progress Allen will make this week.

“We haven’t seen any setbacks in his rehab but we’re going to take it one day at a time,” Allen said.

With a bye on tap for Week 11 and Allen out of action for an extended period of time, the Bills might have designs on getting the rookie ready for the Jaguars’ visit in Week 12. If that’s the case, it may mean Nathan Peterman will be leading the offense again against the Jets this week.

Derek Anderson will not take part in practice on Wednesday, which means he still remains at a relatively early stage of the concussion protocol after getting injured in Buffalo’s loss to the Patriots in Week Eight.

    Wrong person, but at the right time.

  2. “We haven’t seen any setbacks in his rehab but we’re going to take it one day at a time,” Allen said.

    What, Allen’s talking about himself in the third-person now.

    Jimmy likes Elaine.

    If this is true, then the Bills are in worse shape than reasonably conceivable.

  3. It’s time for Matt Barkley if Allen can’t play. He’s better than Peterman but that isn’t saying much.

  4. Fire McDermott and Beane for this fiasco they created….Rex Ryan and his fat sister would be a step up from these 2 posers…

  5. this is all intentional. IF I actually thought the Bills front office was trying to win games that would be one thing. They aren’t they just can’t come out and say that.

  6. Asking for Rex Ryan instantly invalidates any credibility you may think you have. McDermott and Beane took a worse roster than what was fielded under Rex Ryan and took them to the playoffs. Hindsight is 20/20, and I’m sure neither coach or GM are pleased with the current QB situation, but they have to deal with it now. Firing them because they had 3 unknowns at the QB position and decided to stick with the 2 they knew the best is exactly what Buffalo has done the last 20 years. McDermott is the best coach the Bills have had in a long time. Beanes script has yet to be written, but his past 2 draft classes have proven he knows more than Doug Whaley.

    Seriously, if you’re a Bills fan, and crap on the Bills, you’re a moron. Plain and simple. The mess at OBD was created before either of the 2 men leading this team were offered Jobs, it falls at the feet of Whaley and Rex Ryan. Uncle buck probably bought that morons F250 with the Bills wrap.

  7. You can’t blame the Coach or GM if the best two QB’s are out with injuries. You can’t. You can blame them for not putting more work into fielding an adequate O-Line. Losing three starters and going with “next man up” doesn’t cut it in the NFL.

  8. Allen is a BUST !!!! Everyone seemed to know before he was drafted that he sucked except for Bills GM Beane & Buffalos front office. Allen is Blaine Gabbert 2.0, on the field he doesnt & has not looked anywhere near close to competent. Bill’s ownership needs to fire these clowns at the end of this season.

  9. Derek Anderson is going to stay in that tent until he’s offered an injury settlement. What a mess.
