Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen will be a full participant in practice Monday and is in line to start for their Week 12 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Bills coach Sean McDermott said per Mike Rodak of ESPN.
Allen has missed the Bills’ past four games due to an elbow injury. McDermott adds that they are still taking Allen’s injury “one day at a time”
Allen, the No. 7 pick in this year’s draft, has completed 54 percent of his passes for 832 yards with two touchdowns and five interceptions in six games (five starts) thus far this season.
The Bills had three different starters at quarterback in Allen’s absence. Veteran Derek Anderson started the first two games, but he has missed the last two games due to a concussion. Nathan Peterman got the start in Week 9’s 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears and was subsequently cut.
And in Week 10, Matt Barkley got the surprise start. He went 15 of 25 for 232 yards with two touchdowns to lead the Bills to a 41-10 win.
Allen looks set to make his return against the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars, who lost their sixth game in a row on Sunday after surrendering a 16-point second-half lead to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
If Allen does play, he'll go up against Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who called the young quarterback “trash” during an interview in the offseason.
