Both worked with the second team and look to get back to the first-team reps on Tuesday,LaAdrian Waddle reportedly has a torn quadriceps muscle and is done for the year but Mitch Morse was on the sideline working agility drills on Monday.Cody Ford got his second straight day as starting right guard, but he wasn’t as solid as he was Sunday, He’s easily capable of displaying his power but still needs work on his feet.Ed Oliver causing problemsSure, it’s against Russell Bodine, but Ed Oliver has been causing problems in the Bills’ backfield since the pads went on. Oliver got too close to Josh Allen on Monday and the second-year quarterback banged his throwing hand into Oliver’s helmet.Oliver played his way into the starting lineup and it’s hard to see him leave it anytime soon unless it’s to give Bodine, Allen, and company a break from the relentless beatings.Passing game back on MondayAfter poor performances the last few days, Josh Allen was accurate and decisive on Monday. His connection with John Brown was back, and the pair found each other in multiple areas of the field. Allen found Andre Roberts in the back of the end zone for a 17-year touchdown after a scramble to buy time to end practice and his arm strength was on full display with the throw. We didn’t expect Allen’s development to be a straight line up, but it’s good to see it trending back that way after a couple down days.Odds and endsIke Boettger was the second-team center with Bodine taking first-team reps. Morse was out and Long and Feliciano were limited.Josh Allen may be coming for EJ Manuel’s hard count crown. He drew Lorenzo Alexander and Ed Oliver offside during team work.Hamstrung tight ends Dawson Knox and Jason Croom were doing agility training , indicating that they could return to the lineup soon. With the upcoming game against the Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo will probably rest them until after the game as they work their way back.Devin Singletary continues to impress the media.Siran Neal received two-on-one work from head coach Sean McDermott and safeties coach Bobby Babich for 20 minutes before practice. Neal is taking over as the team’s Big Nickel safety.Duke Williams and David Sills V were “sprinkled in” with the second-team offense according to Sal Capaccio and Williams was better on Monday, says The Athletic. Still, they both have a long way to go to crack the roster.Buffalo practiced the end-of-game multi-lateral play during Monday’s practice.What can Josh Allen do to secure the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback job? Josh Allen will be making his first start as a NFL quarterback when the Buffalo Bills take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3 exhibition action on Sunday afternoon. After solid outings with reserve offensive units in his first two preseason games, Allen’s start this weekend represents the best opportunity a Bills quarterback has had so far this summer to stake his claim for the starting job.Bills fans have spent this week wondering aloud: What does Allen need to do on Sunday to win the Week 1 starting gig?What if the best answer to that question is “nothing”?Scenario 1: “The Plan” has involved starting Allen all alongSean McDermott has the final say in whether or not the Bills end up throwing Allen into the proverbial fire and starting him straight away as he begins his NFL career. McDermott is perhaps singularly known for being a process-oriented individual; if he has a plan in place, he has come across as a coach that will stick to it.McDermott has made it clear that this preseason start against Cincinnati was premeditated, and a way for the coaches to see how Allen handles the week-long process of preparing for a pro opponent as the starter. This could be a dress rehearsal for the eventuality of him becoming the starter, or it could be a final exam, of sorts, before he’s named the Week 1 starter.It would not be surprising in the least if McDermott, as well as general manager Brandon Beane, has planned to start Allen from the moment they drafted him, despite the pre-draft rhetoric that Allen was not ready for that level of responsibility, and despite the measured pace with which they’ve scooted him up the depth chart this spring and summer. There is no better teacher than experience, and while experience can be earned just by being on a NFL team, on-field experience is far more valuable.If the Bills have seen enough to plan on starting Allen in Week 1, then all Allen needs to do against Cincinnati Jeremy Kerley Jersey , in essence, is to maintain the level of play he’s shown this preseason, without falling flat on his face.Scenario 2: “The Plan” has involved sitting Allen all alongIt also would not be surprising in the least if the McDermott and Beane have planned to sit Allen from the moment they drafted him. The Bills have a challenging slate of defenses to play against early in the regular season, and in order to keep the rookie’s confidence up and his trajectory on track, it may never have entered their mind to consider starting him until he’s experienced a few weeks of real-game preparation.More importantly, for as well as Allen has played this preseason - both in terms of in-game performance, as well as technical improvements made during practices - there are still some glaring weaknesses and inconsistencies with his overall game that opponents will key on if he’s in the lineup.If the Bills are using this preseason start as a baby step in their prep-Allen strategy, and will be rolling with either Nathan Peterman or AJ McCarron in Week 1, then Allen’s charge from Scenario 1 won’t be much different here: he’ll need to maintain (but ideally exceed) the level of play he’s shown this preseason, without exhibiting the type of regression that would torpedo his confidence right before his scheduled stretch of dates with the bench.Scenario 3: “The Competition” has been legitimate all alongThis is where the conversation starts to become more interesting, even though it fundamentally relies on the idea that McDermott and Beane somehow won’t stick with their pre-determined plan of developing Allen, which could be considered a stretch of the imagination.Let’s assume, though, that the McCarron-Peterman-Allen rotation has been a legitimate, agenda-free competition for the Week 1 starting job from the moment those three first met with Buffalo’s coaches as a group.In that scenario, Allen has a leg up, for two primary reasons: he is easily the most talented quarterback of the trio Womens Vontae Davis Jersey , and he has been the only member of the trio to consistently rise up the depth chart, whereas Peterman and Allen have primarily bobbed up and down it.If this is really a final exam for Allen - his last major test from possibly-hesitant coaches facing the reality of starting him straight away - then Allen’s to-do list expands, though perhaps not by much. I would argue that, in this vacuum, Allen needs to do two things to win the starting job:Improve on his performance against Cleveland last weekOutplay Peterman by a significant marginDeadspin wisecracks aside, Peterman has distinct advantages over Allen at the moment: he has been far more consistent this summer, and especially in preseason action; and McDermott has a lot more familiarity with him, considering that both McCarron and Allen are new to the franchise as of this spring. Adding in the fact that McCarron has missed a week-plus of throwing, and it seems obvious that if this isn’t Allen’s job to lose, it’s Peterman’s. Given how well Peterman has played so far this preseason - he has been statistically better than Allen - it might take a large step forward from Allen, and a large step backwards from Peterman, for McDermott to feel comfortable pulling the trigger.Each of the Bills’ first two preseason games have told us a lot about the Bills’ quarterback situation, both at a micro and a macro level. We’re now just a few days away from Allen’s biggest test to date. Whether you believe the Bills are in Scenario 1, Scenario 2, or Scenario 3 with their rookie quarterback, there’s no denying that Allen has a significant opportunity to make one last move before whichever Week 1 fate awaits him arrives.
