Anderson signed a one-year contract extension with the Bills on Monday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports. Buffalo previously extended top backup Matt Barkley earlier this month, so the decision to re-sign Anderson indicates the team at least tentatively plans to proceed with three quarterbacks on the roster in 2019. Though he underwhelmed across his two appearances with Buffalo this season, completing 42 of 70 passes for 465 yards, no touchdowns and four interceptions, the 35-year-old was a positive resource for rookie Josh Allen, who displayed signs of growth down the stretch. So long as Allen and Barkley are both healthy next season, Anderson will continue to offer most of his value as a mentor to the younger signal-callers.
Anderson is once again inactive Sunday against Detroit, despite having cleared concussion protocol. Anderson could be available if Buffalo needed him on the active roster, but the team will instead roll with Josh Allen as the starter and Matt Barkley as the primary backup.
After several weeks, Anderson has cleared the concussion protocol, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Anderson suffered the concussion all the way back in Week 8, but he's finally received full clearance for all football activities. Unfortunately for Anderson, Matt Barkley looks to have passed him on the QB depth chart, and he may even be a healthy scratch this week against Detroit.
Anderson remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and will be limited at practice Wednesday, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports. Anderson's continued involvement in practice is a good sign, though he will have to graduate to full participation to rejoin the action Sunday. He still has a couple of days ahead to make that jump, which could position him as a backup option for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Anderson (concussion) practiced on a limited basis for the third straight day Friday and was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets. Matt Barkley will continue to serve as the backup to Josh Allen, while the Bills seemingly have no intention to get Anderson back on the field in 2018. At this point he's around to serve as a good, veteran sounding board for the promising Allen.
