Bills may turn to Barkley

The London Free Press - - SPORTS -

Bills rookie quar­ter­back Josh Allen’s sta­tus re­mains un­cer­tain. Derek An­der­son is out. That means it might be Matt Barkley time for Buf­falo. Barkley is sud­denly in the mix to start against the New York Jets on Sun­day, some 10 days af­ter Buf­falo signed the jour­ney­man to serve as an emer­gency backup. Coach Sean McDer­mott on Fri­day backed off his pre­vi­ous com­mit­ment of hav­ing turnover-prone Nathan Peter­man start against the Jets if Allen and An­der­son can’t play. Jets quar­ter­back Sam Darnold was listed as doubt­ful for Sun­day, mak­ing it highly un­likely he will serve as Josh McCown’s backup. Davis Webb is likely to be signed from the prac­tice squad to pro­vide in­sur­ance.
