Peterman was drafted by the Bills in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott has announced that Nathan Peterman will start at quarterback for the Bills when they head on the road to take on the Los Angeles Chargers this Sunday afternoon. It's unclear what changed in a 24-hour period, as the coach emphatically stated on Monday that Taylor would remain Buffalo's starting QB going forward.More news: Flydubai orders 175 Boeing jets, purchasing options for 50 more
The unproven Peterman will get at least one opportunity to see if he can provide better production behind center, but if he falters Sunday, it wouldn't be surprising if McDermott turned the reins of the offense back over to Taylor.More news: Kim Kardashian Accidentally Blurts Out Gender Of Her Baby On 'Ellen'
McDermott in August squashed speculation that Peterman could be the starter by standing by Taylor after he completed 48 percent of his passes for 100 yards, two interceptions and a 27.9 passer rating in three preseason games. He also ran for 12 touchdowns.
