BILLS NOW LOOKING TO BARKLEY
buffalo bills quarterback Josh allen remains in the concussion protocol after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit in sunday’s loss to New england.
at his Monday afternoon news conference bills head coach sean Mcdermott said the team is starting the week under the assumption backup Qb Matt barkley will start sunday’s game at Tennessee.
“until we know more, that’s what we have to do — and that’s make sure Matt is ready to go,” Mcdermott said.
Mcdermott quite pointedly expressed his disappointment following the game sunday that Patriots defensive back Jonathan Jones did not get ejected for the tackle. He refused to address the incident in any way on Monday, saying he and the team have moved on.
Perhaps that decision came about after he dissected reviews of the play, in which it appears Jones actually was in the process of turning his own head sideways and furthermore did not leap toward allen nor lower his head into allen. If anything, replays show allen lowered his helmet into Jones’.
unsurprisingly, Patriots coach belichick on Monday said he agreed with the decision to not eject Jones.
