Bills QB Allen resumes practice 3 weeks after elbow injury

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Rookie quarterback Josh Allen has resumed practicing for the first time since spraining his right throwing elbow, though Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott says it's too early to determine whether he can play against the New York Jets this weekend.

McDermott says Allen began testing his arm Friday, and threw about 100 passes during a workout Monday, which translates into an average workload during a normal practice.

In saying he won't rule out Allen from playing Sunday, McDermott was cautious in adding "I'm going to take it day to day at this point."

The coach is also taking into account the option of providing Allen additional time to heal with Buffalo (2-7) entering its bye week after playing at New York.

Allen has been out since being hurt during a 20-13 loss at Houston on Oct. 14, which began the Bills' four-game skid.

The quarterback position has been in flux since and contributed to a sputtering offense which has scored 20 points in its past three games.

Derek Anderson turned the ball over six times in two starts before sustaining a concussion in a 25-6 loss to New England last week. Nathan Peterman threw three interceptions in a 41-9 loss to Chicago on Sunday.

Anderson remains in the NFL's concussion protocol.
