A.J. McCarron signed with the Buffalo Bills in the off-season on a one-year deal. Just two games into his preseason career with the team, he suffered an injury.
McCarron suffered a hairline collarbone fracture on Friday night in the Bills 19-17 win over the Cleveland Browns. He went 3-of-6 for 12 yards before leaving with his injury.
He was brought in to provide veteran leadership to the quarterback depth chart. However, with this injury, it has likely ended any potential chance that he potentially had of being the team’s starting quarterback to begin the season.
It is not known how long McCarron will be out with his injury. However, it could potentially be a week or several weeks, before he’s able to return to the field. By that time, he likely lost the starting position.
The competition will now be between rookie first-round draft pick Josh Allen and second-year quarterback Nathan Peterman.
In last night’s game, Peterman went 8 of 10 for 113 yards with a touchdown. Allen also went 9 of 13 for 60 yards and a touchdown.
The 27-year-old McCarron is 2-1 in three career NFL starts, all in 2015. In 11 career games, he has gone 86 of 133 for 920 yards with six touchdowns and two interceptions.
The 24-year-old Peterman is 1-1 in two career NFL starts. He has gone 24 of 49 for 252 yards with two touchdowns and five interceptions in four career games.
