Bills QB Josh Allen won’t play in preseason opener

If you plan on watching the Buffalo Bills preseason opener on Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts at Highmark Stadium, don’t expect to see Josh Allen on the field.

Head coach Sean McDermott told reporters Thursday before the final training camp practice at St. John Fisher University that Allen will not play.

Veteran backups Case Keenum and Matt Barkley are the other quarterbacks and they will handle the snaps against Indianapolis.

McDermott added that the team is still trying to decide who will be playing on Saturday.

The kickoff for Saturday’s game is slated for 4 p.m. on NFL Network. The Bills have not lost a preseason game since August 26, 2018.
