Bills QB Allen week-to-week after elbow injury

With Josh Allen in doubt for Sunday after injuring his elbow, Bills coach Sean McDermott said the team will "work through" whether Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson gets to replace the rookie.

Bills CB Tre'Davious White tweeted about Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins after Buffalo's 20-13 loss Sunday, writing, "Damn they hiding a all pro receiver in the back field to getting away from me now … 2 catches for like 30 some yards and a lot crying to the refs smh .. [lock emoji].” Hopkins finished with five catches for 63 yards and a touchdown against White, but White later clarified in a tweet that he meant Hopkins only made two catches against him and the others in the slot. White later deleted both tweets.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin described a report from WHAM before Sunday's 20-13 game that he declined to run routes pregame with QB Josh Allen as "misinformation." Benjamin said he felt ready for the game when Allen asked him if he needed more routes and that he wanted to "conserve his energy" and get an IV before kickoff. "It wasn't a question of, 'Do you want to run routes?' and I declined," Benjamin said. "That's just somebody trying to take something and run with it, try to get their name out there. Pregame is the player's choice to warm up to get ready for the game."

After throwing two more interceptions, including a pick-six, to seal the Bills' 20-13 loss Sunday to the Houston Texans, QB Nathan Peterman said he will look to his "true identity in Christ" to overcome his latest stumble. "Being a child of God, basically," Peterman said. "Not finding my identity in football. Just trying to find it in who I really am. Again, I love this game and I put everything I have into this game but I can't let it define me either."

Bills rookie QB Josh Allen did not speak to reporters following Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Texans, but was noticeably favoring his injured right arm while changing clothes. Allen left in the third quarter with an elbow injury and was listed as questionable to return. At one point, trainers put a wrap around Allen's right arm but he remained on the bench while Nathan Peterman threw two game-sealing interceptions.

Another chapter was written Sunday in the tragic novel that is Nathan Peterman's career after Peterman threw a pick-six and another interception to give the Texans a 20-13 win over Buffalo after rookie Josh Allen suffered an elbow injury. As soon as newly-signed Derek Anderson is ready, the Bills must make him their No. 2 quarterback and possibly start if Allen remains out.

Bills rookie QB Josh Allen suffered an elbow injury late in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans. Allen was hit after throwing a 39-yard completion to Kelvin Benjamin, shaking his right hand as he ran to the next huddle. After throwing an incompletion, Allen took a knee and called for trainers. He was replaced by Nathan Peterman; Allen is listed as questionable to return.

The Bills were held to 53 total yards of offense in the first half of Sunday's game at Houston, the fourth-fewest by any NFL team in a first half this season. Buffalo trails, 10-0, thanks to special-teams miscues (a blocked punt and muffed punt return) and to a Josh Allen-led offense that has scored only one touchdown and two field goals in its last 33 possessions dating back to Week 3.

Sources: Bills unlikely to trade McCoy to Eagles

A trade that would reunite Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy and the Philadelphia Eagles looks increasingly unlikely because of the spots that both teams are in, league sources tell ESPN.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bills listed all of their injured players without game statuses on their Friday injury report, meaning all are expected to play Sunday in Houston, including cornerback Tre'Davious White (left ankle) and safety Micah Hyde (groin).

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott said cornerback Tre'Davious White (ankle), safety Micah Hyde (groin) and safety Rafael Bush (shoulder) were limited in Thursday's practice. "They'll remain day-to-day," he said. "They all got some work in today. We've got to continue to move that thing forward as we go through the week here." McDermott said White "inflamed" his ankle in practice Wednesday. White declined to speak to reporters Thursday.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Thursday of Bruce Smith addressing the team at practice, which had been planned over the past month: "An honor for us. We understand the tradition here, and that's part of it, is connecting our players to the past, and in particular the early 1990s. He's arguably the best pass rusher of all time, so he's certainly done something right over the years. Anytime those guys come around, love having them connect with the team."

Hall of Famer Bruce Smith addressed the Bills early in Thursday's practice before having a long talk with coach Sean McDermott afterward.

Bills CB Tre'Davious White was limited in Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury. White was seen walking off the field after practice with his shoes off, accompanied by a member of the training staff. Safeties Micah Hyde (groin) and Rafael Bush (shoulder) were also limited in practice.

Bills running back LeSean McCoy generally did not address trade rumors Wednesday, saying, "I heard about it. I kind of just stay focused on the job, the task at hand. I'll let that stuff work itself out. We'll see what happens." McCoy said he would let his agent (Drew Rosenhaus) and the "guys upstairs" handle it, adding he did not ask the team about it. McCoy did say, "I should have never gotten traded [from Philadelphia in 2015] anyway. I was killing stuff, you know?"

McDermott won't throw shade on McCoy report

The Bills obtained running back LeSean McCoy in a trade with the Eagles in 2015 and could be sending him back to Philadelphia, according to a report that head coach Sean McDermott didn't dismiss at his news conference Wednesday.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills coach Sean McDermott unprompted at the start of his news conference Wednesday addressed a report from WIVB that the Eagles had contacted Buffalo about a trade for LeSean McCoy. McDermott: "We're just looking forward to the Houston Texans. We get calls all the time. Incoming calls happen all the time. [General manager] Brandon [Beane] and I talk a lot. I won't get into any more detail than that." McDermott pushed back against any further questions, saying he would give the same response.
