Derek Anderson likely to start for Bills with Josh Allen out

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.

Jose Mourinho vows to be on best behaviour at Stamford Bridge
The forward, who has scored eight goals in 10 games this season, is yet to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge and has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

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.
