Bills QB Watch: Nathan Peterman has rough outing on Day 2

Nathan Peterman made the two most spectacular completions in Friday's practice, but also had the toughest day of the three quarterbacks, on the second day of training camp at St. John Fisher College.

The second-year QB was just 2 for 8 passing in 11-on-11 team work. That included two overthrows and one pass behind a receiver, along with two passes that were broken up by good coverage plays.

AJ McCarron took most of the snaps with the starters, while Peterman worked with the second-teamers. McCarron has been the steadiest of the three QBs through the first two days, keeping in mind that early training camp evaluations in padless practices are not a huge deal.

McCarron was 7 for 9 in full-team work, while rookie Josh Allen was 6 for 9.

McCarron's best completion was a touch pass on a cross to Kelvin Benjamin for 18 yards. Benjamin used his huge wingspan to pluck the ball out of the air.

Allen was thrown in with the starters for one four-play segment. He hit a check-down against a blitz to LeSean McCoy, connected with Jeremy Kerley on a quick out and hit a quick throw to Charles Clay against a blitz.

Allen has shown the ability to make touch throws. He hit a nice, lofted ball to tight end Jason Croom to the sideline on a play that fooled the third-team defense. Allen also missed on two throws on which he thought the receiver was breaking off his route, but the wideout keep going vertical.

Peterman's good plays came in the 7-on-7 session. He hit Rod Streater on a 30-yard sideline completion. Then he was flushed out of the pocket to his left and heaved a 50-yard pass to the back line of the end zone, where undrafted rookie Cam Phillips outleaped cornerback Lafayette Pitts and came down with a touchdown.
