Josh Allen, most Bills starters will not play in preseason finale

If you plan on watching the Buffalo Bills’ final preseason game on Friday night against the Carolina Panthers, expect to see mainly second and third-team players on the field.

Before Wednesday’s practice, head coach Sean McDermott announced that quarterback Josh Allen, along with many of the team’s starters, will not suit up.

“I want to give us the chance to thoroughly evaluate through three preseason games some of the other guys on the roster,” McDermott said.

The Bills are 2-0 this preseason and have not lost a preseason game since August 26, 2018. The kickoff for Friday’s game is slated for 7 p.m. on CBS.
