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.
