Buffalo QB Josh Allen set to return vs. Jacksonville
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen will make his return to the starting lineup this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Coach Sean McDermott made the announcement on Monday. Allen missed four games after suffering an elbow injury in Buffalo's Week 6 loss to the Houston Texans. He returned to the practice field before the team's Week 11 bye but didn't play in Week 10 against the New York Jets.
Matt Barkley started for Buffalo against the Jets and provided the team with its best performance under center this season. He threw for 232 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 41-10 win on Nov. 11.
The Bills have said Allen, chosen seventh overall this spring, would return to the starting lineup once healthy.
