Anderson (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Anderson continues to progress in his recovery from a concussion sustained in Week 8. With Matt Barkley having led the Bills to a 41-10 win over the Jets and rookie quarterback Josh Allen (elbow) nearing a return to full health, it appears unlikely that Anderson will start another game this season. It's possible the veteran could remain in Buffalo as a depth option and educator for the two other younger quarterbacks in the room, but Anderson could realistically be a candidate for release when healthy.
Anderson (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Anderson was sidelined with his concussion at the Bills' first two practices of the week, and the team has decided he will not be able to make enough progress in the concussion protocol to play Week 10. Head coach Sean McDermott did not reveal his starter for this week at his Friday morning press conference, but according to Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com, he left the door open for any of Josh Allen (elbow), Nathan Peterman or Matt Barkley to get the nod.
Coach Sean McDermott made it clear Anderson (concussion) is ahead of Nathan Peterman in the pecking order at quarterback, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Not that there was really any doubt, but McDermott confirmed Anderson will start against the Jets in Week 10 if he's cleared from the concussion protocol and Josh Allen (shoulder) still isn't ready. The team may want to play it safe with the rookie Allen ahead of a Week 11 bye.
Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Anderson remains in the concussion protocol, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports. McDermott also said the team has received no indication from doctors whether Anderson is likely to clear the protocol, leaving his status for Sunday's game against the Bears questionable at best. Nathan Peterman would start at quarterback in Week 9 should Anderson ultimately be ruled out, with the newly signed Matt Barkley serving as the backup.
Anderson (concussion) wasn't spotted on the field for Thursday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports. Anderson will go down as a non-participant for the second straight day of practice, which further supports the notion that the veteran signal-caller won't be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Bears. The Bills are expected to start Nathan Peterman in the Week 9 contest, with the newly signed Matt Barkley on hand for backup duties while Anderson remains stuck in the NFL's concussion protocol.
