Bills may turn to Barkley
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.
