Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday that with Josh Allen out due with an elbow injury, Derek Anderson will start Sunday's tilt versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Anderson had spent seven years in Carolina as Cam Newton's backup, throwing all of 168 passes in that time. He was not re-signed after last season and remained unemployed until the Bills acquired him last week. With Allen injured and Nathan Peterman healthy, Anderson is the best option on the roster.
