Nathan Peterman Expected to Start for Bills Sunday; Anderson Suffering From a Concussion

Bills quarterback Derek Anderson is suffering from a concussion sustained in their Monday night loss to the Patriots. Nathan Peterman is expected to start Sunday at quarterback against the Chicago Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

“We’ll see where things stand as we go through the week with Derek,” McDermott said. “Then we’ll take it from there.”

McDermott ruled out rookie quarterback Josh Allen for Sunday’s game, meaning he will miss his third consecutive contest after spraining his right elbow in an Oct. 14 loss to the Houston Texans. McDermott said Allen remains week-to-week and is “making good progress” in his recovery but has yet to resume throwing.

Anderson was escorted off the field after he was sacked by New England Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy with 1:25 remaining in the Bills’ 25-6 loss Monday night. Anderson completed 22 of 39 passes for 290 yards but threw a fourth-quarter interception to Patriots safety Devin McCourty that was returned 84 yards for a touchdown.

Wide Out Terrelle Pryor Set to Ink with the Bills

Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor intends to sign with the Buffalo Bills, a source told Josina Anderson of ESPN.

Pryor visited the team on Monday and the team made had made a contract offer. He is traveling back to Buffalo on Tuesday intending to sign a deal, the source said.

The New York Jets released Pryor earlier this month. The wide receiver had a tear in his groin at the time of his release but apparently is healthy now.

The former Ohio State quarterback caught a touchdown pass in each of the Jets’ two games before his release, against the Broncos and Colts. He has 14 receptions for 235 yards on the season.

Bills QB Josh Allen “Week-to-Week” with Elbow Injury

Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Monday that rookie quarterback Josh Allen was “week-to-week” with an elbow injury and was noncommittal as to whether Allen would start in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts according to Mike Rodak of ESPN.

Allen took a big hit to his elbow when was sandwiched between two defenders as he delivered a deep pass to Kelvin Benjamin in the third quarter. He stayed in for another play, but he grabbed his throwing arm after that throw and headed to the sideline. Allen was replaced by Nathan Peterman, who threw a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter that put the Bills up 13-10 in the fourth quarter but then threw an interception in overtime that the Texans returned for a game-winning touchdown.

McDermott did not name his starter for Week 7 should Allen be unable to suit up. His choices are Peterman, who has now thrown nine interceptions in only 79 career attempts, or veteran Derek Anderson, who was just signed last week and was inactive for the Texans game.

Bills Ink CB Dontae Johnson; Dump DE Nate Orchard

The Bills have signed cornerback Dontae Johnson to shore up an injury-depleted secondary.

Buffalo freed up room on the roster by releasing defensive end Nate Orchard on Tuesday.

Johnson is a fourth-year player and opened this season with Seattle. He was placed on injured reserve on Sept. 8 because of a groin injury and released by the Seahawks last week.

Johnson was selected by the 49ers in the fourth round of the 2014 draft. He spent his first four seasons with San Francisco, where he returned two interceptions for touchdowns in 22 starts over 63 games.
