Bills QB Barkley in the mix to start against Jets

The Oklahoman - - SPORTS -

Buf­falo Bills coach Sean McDer­mott is back­ing off his pre­vi­ous com­mit­ment of hav­ing quar­ter­back Nathan Peter­man start against the New York Jets if rookie Josh Allen isn't cleared to play.

And that puts Matt Barkley in the mix to start Sun­day.

McDer­mott re­versed course Fri­day af­ter he ruled out Derek An­der­son and said Allen's sta­tus re­mains un­cer­tain four weeks since sprain­ing his right throw­ing el­bow. Asked of the pos­si­bil­ity of Peter­man start­ing, McDer­mott sidestepped the ques­tion by say­ing he pre­ferred to keep the fo­cus on Allen. A per­son fa­mil­iar with sit­u­a­tion told The As­so­ci­ated Press that Barkley is be­ing con­sid­ered ahead of Peter­man, but a fi­nal de­ci­sion hasn't yet been made.
