The Bills' quarterback competition is still unsettled. Their defense showed signs of looking lost in giving up a touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage against Cincinnati.

And Buffalo's patchwork offensive line is getting manhandled.

These are not encouraging signs less than two weeks before the Bills open the regular season at Baltimore.

"It's a wake-up call for all of us Warren Sapp Jersey ," center Ryan Groy said Monday, a day after the line was pushed around in giving up five sacks in the first half of a 26-13 preseason loss to the Bengals. "We couldn't get anything going. Hurt ourselves pre-snap. Didn't protect the quarterback. Did pretty much of everything on the do-not-do list."

The level of concern was no different on defense after Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton burned Buffalo's defense for 180 yards passing and two touchdowns on five series 鈥?including a 57-yarder to John Ross on the opening snap.

"We couldn't stop them, man," cornerback Tre'Davious White said. "We weren't able to do anything yesterday. They were able to pick their spots and they were able to exploit them."

As for quarterback, coach Sean McDermott is still not ready to name the Bills' season-opening starter, never mind which of his three quarterbacks will start in Buffalo's final preseason tuneup at Chicago on Thursday.

"No further quarterback developments," he said.

Rookie first-round pick Josh Allen's steady progress took a considerable step back against the Bengals. In his first preseason start , he completed 6 of 12 passes for 34 yards, was sacked five times for 39 yards and managed just three first downs over seven-plus series before being pulled to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

Allen was cleared to return for the start of the second half, but remained on the sideline while Nathan Peterman mopped up.

Peterman, Buffalo's returning backup Doug Martin Jersey , has put up the best numbers this preseason, though he's had just two series against an opponent's starting defense.

As for AJ McCarron, the offseason free agent addition was cleared for practice Monday, some 10 days after being sidelined by a bruised right throwing shoulder during a 19-17 win at Cleveland.

The Bills are a work in progress at best a little over eight months after sneaking into the playoffs to end a 17-year postseason drought, which had been the longest active streak in North America's four major professional sports.

The current struggles reflect a roster still in the midst of being overhauled entering McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane's second seasons on the job.

Only 15 players are left with two or more years of experience in Buffalo.

Though the depth chart is not yet set, there is a chance the Bills will feature as many as seven starters with one or fewer season of NFL experience. And that includes the possibility of Allen or Peterman starting at quarterback.

Difficult as Allen's outing was against Cincinnati, McDermott considered it a valuable learning experience for the strong-armed, yet raw quarterback in getting his first opportunity to face a starting NFL defense.

"I know the numbers didn't really show a great performance necessarily, but then again, there's a lot of things that go into that as well," he said.

"I did like his poise in the pocket to an extent. I thought he got us in and out of the huddle for the most part and managed some of the highs and lows Sammy Watkins Jersey ," McDermott added. "That's all part of playing that quarterback position and leading a football team."

CB COMPETITION: McDermott said the starting cornerback spot opposite White is still up for grabs between veteran free agent additions Vontae Davis and Phillip Gaines. Davis, a nine-year veteran, has struggled. He slipped while attempting to cover Ross on the opening play.

SEEING YELLOW: McDermott is frustrated by the Bills being flagged 32 times for 257 yards in three preseason games. That includes 13 penalties for 125 yards against the Bengals. "It's unacceptable," he said.

HONORING McCAIN: The flags in front of the Bills headquarters remained at half-staff Monday in honor of Sen. John McCain, who died of a malignant brain tumor on Saturday. The team also held a moment of silence before kickoff Sunday.

INJURED: LB Julian Stanford is listed as week to week after hurting his nose against Cincinnati.
Andrew Luck should be back in his old spot when the Indianapolis Colts open training camp next week.

Yes, he’ll be behind center. Yes, he’ll take some extra days off. And, no, he may not play the usual preseason rotation.

But when he’s on the field, general manager Chris Ballard expects to see the same old Luck -throwing passes without limitations for the first time in more than 18 months.

”He’s good to go,” Ballard said Friday during a media tour of the team’s new camp site at Grand Park Sports Campus in a northern Indianapolis suburb. ”Like (coach) Frank (Reich) and Andrew talked about at minicamp Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , we’ll try to mimic it like a regular season week. He’s going to have days off. He’s not going to throw seven days a week.”

Players were not available for interviews Friday.

Luck’s return is the best news yet for a team trying to rebound from a 4-12 season and a third consecutive year without a playoff appearance.

Luck said he played through a sore right shoulder in 2015 and eventually opted for surgery on the partially torn labrum in January 2017. He missed all of last season as he tried to rehab.

Two weeks after Luck started to throw in October, he was shut down after complaining of lingering pain. In early November, he was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list and didn’t resume throwing publicly again until last month’s three-day mandatory minicamp.

He’s spent the last five weeks working out in California.

”I haven’t been with him, but I’ve seen enough throws that I know he’s throwing the ball pretty well,” Ballard said before reflecting on his thoughts from last month’s throwing sessions. ”I thought the first day there was one ball on a swing pass, `OK, there you go, he really let it go.’ The next day, there were four to five balls he really let go. I think that’ll be the case when you get to camp.”

The plan calls for Luck to throw about four days per week at camp – simulating his regular-season routine.

But nobody can say with certainty when, or if, the No. 1 overall pick in 2012 will regain his Pro Bowl form.

”I think we’ll get questions until he lines up and plays again Trent Brown Jersey , and plays high-level football again,” Ballard said. ”I can see the panic the first time he throws an interception. It’s just part of what we do. He understands it. He gets it.”

Ballard acknowledged Luck needs to take ”live reps” during camp and indicated Luck would likely see some preseason action. How much time is still to be determined, and Ballard declined to say whether Luck would play in Indy’s preseason opener, Aug. 9 at Seattle.

Luck isn’t the only player who will be watched closely.

Starting safeties Clayton Geathers and Malik Hooker are both expected to open camp on the physically unable to perform list next week. Geathers had offseason knee surgery – what Ballard described as a ”clean-up” procedure – while Hooker is rehabbing from torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee.

Left tackle Anthony Castonzo and left guard Jeremy Vujnovich also could be placed on PUP. Castonzo pulled a hamstring while working out last week. Vujnovich, who started all 16 games last season, is recovering from a pulled calf muscle.

The Colts report to camp Wednesday and will work out in Westfield through Aug. 18.
