Bills running back LeSean McCoy is loving what he’s seeing of rookie quarterback Josh Allen.
McCoy said at Buffalo’s minicamp that he’s been blown away by Allen’s skill and savvy as a young player.
“I’ve got to be honest Womens Philip Rivers Jersey , he’s pretty good — and I’m not a big fan of rookies,” McCoy said. “A lot of guys as rookies, they’re not like him. . . . He’s good. He’s smart. He has to learn, of course Leonard Fournette Jersey Black , he throws some passes that probably shouldn’t have been thrown, but other than that, he has a strong arm, he’s very intelligent — he’s too smart Womens Ryan Shazier Jersey , I tell him sometimes. We have conversations and I say, ‘Easy. This is not like an exam. Just talk to me. You can say yo. You can say wassup.’ But as a talent level, he’s going to be really good for a lot of years, when he takes over eventually. We took him early in the draft so that’s just common sense Womens Eli Manning Jersey , but he’s special. That’s for sure.”
How soon Allen will be on the field handing off and passing to McCoy in regular-season games remains to be seen. Allen will have an adjustment period in the NFL, and he may not beat out AJ McCarron for the starting job. But if McCoy is right, the Bills finally have their franchise quarterback.
No investigation or federal case needed this time. The NFL says a bad football used in a preseason game Thursday night was simply defective.
The league said in a statement Friday that a ball was removed from play during the third quarter of the Steelers-Eagles game in Philadelphia and will be sent back to manufacturer Wilson for review.
Questions about an underinflated football flared among fans online after the preseason opener when a sideline radio reporter tweeted that he saw a ball looking "VERY deflated" after an incompletion thrown by Pittsburgh rookie Mason Rudolph.
That immediately brought back reminders of "Deflategate," the scandal caused when New England Patriots superstar Tom Brady used underinflated footballs during the 2015 AFC championship game. Brady was ultimately suspended four games in 2016 for his role in a case that climbed all the way to a federal appeals court.
The saga prompted the NFL to change how it handles footballs before and during games.
NFL officials say all the proper procedures were followed during the game Thursday night.
