Josh Allen, Bills starters will play vs. Packers in preseason finale

After not seeing the field in his team’s first two games, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen will be playing in Week 3 of the preseason.

Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott announced on Thursday that his team will be playing starters in their final exhibition game this summer.

That contest is scheduled against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday in Orchard Park.

“Some of the starters won’t play, some will play, a majority will play anywhere from… one play, and this is not a cop out, I’m just trying to give you my mindset right now, one play to coming out of the locker room at half after halftime there in the third quarter.

“Where that falls for each and every individual? I think that we’d get choppy and this would be a 30 minute press conference here,” McDermott said.

McDermott went on to specifically say Allen is amongst the starting players who will suit up.

So far this preseason, Allen is among notable NFL starting quarterbacks that haven’t taken a single snap through the first two weeks of the exhibition season.

The Packers have yet to announce how many of their starters will play vs. Buffalo. However, along with Allen, another one of those starting QBs to not play a single snap in the preseason thus far is Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers.

But worth noting, other big-name quarterbacks have played this summer in exhibition games. Those include Kansas Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady.

In fact, Brady was sacked in the preseason, so Allen playing isn’t shocking, but it is surprising considering he sat out the first two games.
