Allen (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Allen managed to practice in a limited capacity all week and was initially listed as questionable following Friday's practice, but the rookie signal-caller evidently isn't healthy enough to start Sunday's game, or at least the Bills don't want to put their franchise quarterback at risk with a bye coming up. This opens the door for the recently-signed Matt Barkley to make his first NFL start since 2016. Nathan Peterman is expected to act as Barkley's backup while Allen will aim to return to action Week 12 against Jacksonville.
