Derek Anderson likely to start for Bills with Josh Allen out

Elbow injury keeps Rookie Allen from facing Colts

Coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday the decision to start Anderson over Nathan Peterman was made in the best interest of the team.

The Bills are turning to veteran quarterback Derek Anderson to start against the Colts on Sunday after losing Josh Allen to an injury.

It's not clear how long Allen is going to be out of action as McDermott said he'll be reevaluated on a week to week basis, but Allen said he's going to be looking on the bright side of his unplanned absence from the lineup.

Allen suffered the injury late in the third quarter at Houston and did not return to the game.

Apple Schedules October 30 Special Event, New iPad and Mac Models Expected
In March, the company announced new education software and an update to the entry-level iPad at a Chicago-area high school. Although this time, Apple is headed to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in NY for its next product unveilings.

Peterman, 24, began the year as the Bills starter, but that only lasted a single game after throwing for 24 yards and two interceptions in a blowout loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The injury leaves the Bills (2-4) turning to the 35-year-old Anderson, preparing to make his first start in almost two seasons. He has a 20-27 record as a starter over a 12-year National Football League career. The Pittsburgh product threw for 252 yards with a pair of touchdown passes and five picks over four games last season, his rookie year in the NFL.

Peterman's inexperience and struggles led to the Bills signing Anderson last week. He last served a backup role in Carolina to Cam Newton for the first seven years of Newton's career.

While the Bills offense has been averaging the fewest amount of points per game to open the season, the Bills defense has come into form in recent weeks and their attacking 4-3 could give the Colts some fits.
