Bills rookie Josh Allen gets first team reps at practice

BUFFALO (WROC) - Bills head coach Sean McDermott says rookie quarterback Josh Allen has earned a chance to take practice reps with the first unit.

Speaking with members of the media, ahead of mini-camp practice on Tuesday, McDermott said Allen will stay with the third team, but will get opportunities for reps with the first team squad.

McDermott told reporters, "There's not an overall set depth chart this time of the team."

But, McDermott says, at some point, the team will have to pull the trigger on who will be the starting quarterback.

With the departure of Tyrod Taylor in the offseason, the Bills have three quarterbacks on the roster, Allen, AJ McCarron and second-year player Nathan Peterman, but no clear starter.

McCarron, who spent the last four years as Andy Dalton's backup, has the best chance of winning the starting job. At practice on Tuesday, however, all three quarterbacks stood in with the first team.
