NFL: Buffalo Bills-Training Camp Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

As the Buffalo Bills have continued training camp, it has come to appear that the team is in no rush to start quarterback Josh Allen. His work with the first-team offense has been limited, and Allen has worked exclusively with the third team over the last four practices. This should be expected for a rookie whom many felt needed time to develop. On Tuesday, Sean McDermott spoke about the quarterbacks, and publicly stated that he was not going to rush the rookie. This coverage is available below, including plenty of updates on the Corey Coleman trade and more.
