    It's being reported tharvBills QB AJ McCarron did not suffer a fracture in his collarbone, so he should be okay.

    I have heard the rookie is starting the third preseason game. We shall see how he does against 1st teamers for the first time.

    That was their plan from week 1 - each QB gets a start in the first 3 games. Glad that AJ is okay - it keeps Buffalo from bringing in another QB, which would have put him on IR.

    The list is pretty long in terms of can't miss QB's with big arms ending up outside the league.
    One only has to look at Andrew Luck to see how difficult the league can be on young QB's. He is playing in a dome vs. outside in Buffalo NY. We can wait and see.

    This just in - Buffalo's o-line is still horrible. Allen is getting mauled in this game.

    They're currently credited for -11 yards in the passing game - since Allen's five sacks count against the passing total.

    AJ's looking pretty good right about now, I'd think.
    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    The Bills will get the first pick in the draft in 2019. Maybe that will be an offensive lineman?

    He might be better off not playing and protecting his body - with that O-line!

    That is my thought. He should ask them to take another x-ray to make sure it wasn't broken because it might be since the line is so bad.

    The O-line is why I think he will start now. I would also look for the Bills to pick up a couple of linemen from the waiver wire, because that line is horrible. Didn't make a lot of sense to trade a solid left tackle away to draft a qb, did it?

    The good: Played the whole game. Led a 24 point comeback, and had 3 tds

    The Bad: He really wasn't impressive. Yeah he led a good comeback but this is a preseason game. Most of his balls were underthrown, and he made a lot of dumb mistakes. Granted injury and a horrible line could play a huge factor in it.

    The UGLY: He had 2 picks, and was a 38% passer

    Was going to ask if anyone watched after seeing his stats.

    The line had to be bad if he had 5 sacks along with 6 rushes. For his sake, I hope that was a contributing factor in going 13-34.
