Bills' Allen, Edmunds practice; Anderson still out


Buffalo Bills first-round draft picks Josh Allen and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds each practiced on Wednesday, giving both a chance to return Sunday at the New York Jets.

Allen was limited again like he was on Friday, his first practice since spraining his right (throwing) elbow in Week 6 against the Houston Texans. Head coach Sean McDermott said the rookie quarterback has had no setbacks and "has done a good job so far." Allen told reporters he's felt good while throwing for the first time in weeks.

"We're still taking it day-to-day," Allen said. "Just trying to work through if there's any soreness or stiffness, just trying to get back in the swing of playing football again."

McDermott admitted the team's Week 11 bye will be a consideration in deciding when Allen will return to the starting lineup. If Allen misses his fourth straight game on Sunday, he would have two extra weeks to get healthy before a Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Veteran backup Derek Anderson, who was concussed late in a Week 8 loss to the New England Patriots, did not practice on Wednesday and remains at least two steps away from clearing concussion protocol.

With Anderson out last week, Nathan Peterman made his second start of the season and threw three interceptions, bringing his career total to 12 picks on 130 attempts. Peterman finished 31 of 49 for 189 yards, the lowest yardage total with at least 30 completions in a game in NFL history.

Meanwhile, Edmunds returned to a limited practice on Wednesday, his first session since sustaining a concussion against the Patriots. Barring a setback, Edmunds should clear protocol in time to face the Jets.

Edmunds, 20, leads the Bills in tackles (62) and passes defensed (seven) despite missing last week's game. He also has a sack, four QB hits and a pair of forced fumbles this season.
