Bills QB Allen week to week with injured throwing arm

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills rookie Josh Allen is out indefinitely after hurting his right throwing arm and leaving Buffalo in a quandary at quarterback.

Without providing many details, coach Sean McDermott would only list Allen as being "week to week" on Monday, a day after Allen hurt his elbow in the third quarter of a 20-13 loss at Houston. McDermott said he will know more about the nature of Allen's injury after meeting with team doctors.

The injury to the first-round draft pick leaves McDermott having to decide between having turnover-prone backup Nathan Peterman or newly signed 12-year veteran Derek Anderson start in Buffalo's game at Indianapolis on Sunday. McDermott wouldn't provide a hint as to who would start in Allen's place.

Peterman threw two interceptions, with his first returned for the deciding touchdown with 1:23 left against the Texans.
