Josh Allen will start against Green Bay Packers in preseason finale, along with majority of first-teamers

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen will see his first preseason action in the team’s finale this weekend, head coach Sean McDermott told the media at the final practice of the week Thursday. Allen dressed but sat out both preseason games to this point, as have a large number of Bills starters.

McDermott said the majority of Bills starters would play in this weekend’s game, but they will all be on different timelines that could be adjusted as the game goes on. That puts a lot of players in line to take game snaps who haven’t so far in 2021.

There is an extensive list of injured players for the Bills who won’t be available and a number of players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list as part of a mandatory quarantine who could also be held out Saturday.

Saturday’s Kids’ Day game will feature extended family-friendly tailgating as well as reduced price concessions inside the stadium. You do need to wear a mask in the enclosed areas of the stadium.
