Bills' McCarron suffers hairline fracture in collarbone



That's especially the case when talking about a potential quarterback switch for the Baltimore Ravens' Week 1 opponent.

McCarron, who started the Bills' second preseason game, didn't just suffer a poor performance before first-round rookie Josh Allen took over in the second quarter and submitted an impressive audition for the job.

Following the win, head coach Sean McDermott said the quarterback will undergo further tests on his throwing shoulder, but couldn't provide further details, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

And so, that means that either Allen or Nathan Peterman will likely emerge with the Bills' starting job heading into the regular season.

After years of sitting behind Andy Dalton with the Cincinnati Bengals, McCarron was finally given an opportunity to shine Buffalo this year. If even the lower end of that estimate holds true, it would put it beyond Week 1 when the Ravens and Bills play each other.

Both Peterman and Allen did well in their reserve roles against the Browns.

Allen, the No. 7 overall pick in the draft out of Wyoming, took over for McCarron and was 9-of-13 for 60 yards with a touchdown pass and added 18 yards on three carries.
