Bills say QB Matt Barkley expected to start against Jets

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have ruled out rookie Josh Allen and announced that Matt Barkley is expected to start against the New York Jets on Sunday.

Barkley gets the nod instead of turnover-prone Nathan Peterman despite having just two weeks of practice experience in Buffalo. He was signed Oct. 30 and will become the fourth quarterback to start for the team this season. It will be his first start in two years.

Allen will miss his fourth straight game since spraining his right throwing elbow in a 20-13 loss at Houston on Oct. 14. The first-round pick practiced on a limited basis this week and will get additional time to recuperate with Buffalo entering its bye week after playing the Jets.

Veteran backup Derek Anderson had already been ruled out with a concussion.

Barkley is on his sixth team in six seasons, and has a 1-5 career record as a starter, all with the Bears in 2016. He was cut by Cincinnati in September after hurting his knee in a preseason game.

Peterman has thrown seven interceptions in four appearances this season, including three in a 41-9 loss to Chicago last weekend.
