Josh Allen, ‘Most’ Bills starters won’t play vs. Carolina

For fans of the Buffalo Bills hoping to get one last chance to watch the team’s starters before the regular season begins, head coach Sean McDermott ended any speculation on Wednesday, telling reporters that “most” of his starters will sit out the preseason finale.

Which makes sense, considering in Week 2 of the preseason Pro Bowl quarterback Josh Allen, Pro Bowl wide receiver Stefon Diggs, and most of the Bills starters made their preseason debuts during the team’s dress rehearsal game leading up to the regular season—a 42-15 drubbing of the Denver Broncos.

Who could be the next Bill(s) traded?

General manager Brandon Beane has a knack for trading players who might not make his 53-man roster and netting draft picks back in return, with the trade of offensive lineman Cody Ford for a fifth-round pick the latest example. Who could be the next member of the Bills dealt away, plus, fallout from the Ford trade and Ford expresses his gratitude to Bills fans and the franchise after he was shipped to the Arizona Cardinals.
