Edmonton Sun - - SPORTS - — John Kryk

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.
