Bills’ Allen still not cleared

Edmonton Sun - - SPORTS -

Buf­falo Bills quar­ter­back Josh Allen re­mains in the NFL con­cus­sion pro­to­col, but the club has la­beled him as ques­tion­able for Sun­day’s game against the Ten­nessee Titans.

Allen still needs to be cleared by an in­de­pen­dent neu­rol­o­gist over the week­end be­fore he can be cleared to play. He was a full prac­tice par­tic­i­pant on Fri­day.

Buf­falo coach Sean Mcder­mott said he would be fine with start­ing Allen.

“Yes, I would be com­fort­able,” Mcder­mott told re­porters. “He’s in the pro­to­col so I can’t go into what he’s done and hasn’t done, but I would be com­fort­able.”

Allen was in­jured in the third quar­ter of last Sun­day’s loss to the New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots when he ab­sorbed a hel­met-to-hel­met hit to the head.

Matt Barkley will start if Allen isn’t cleared to play. Barkley was 9-of-16 pass­ing for 127 yards and one in­ter­cep­tion in relief of Allen ver­sus New Eng­land.
