Nathan Peterman is getting another shot.

The Bills quarterback is expected to start Sunday against the Bears after Derek Anderson suffered a concussion in Monday’s loss to the Patriots, coach Sean McDermott announced Tuesday.

Peterman previously started the first game of the season for Buffalo but quickly lost the job.

Anderson was sacked by Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy with just over a minute remaining in Monday’s game and had to be helped off the field. Anderson took over under center in Week 7 after rookie Josh Allen suffered an elbow sprain.

With Allen still out and Anderson in concussion protocol, Peterman is the only healthy quarterback on Buffalo’s roster.

Peterman, 24, was selected by the Bills in the fifth round of the 2017 draft. He has completed just 40.6 percent of his passes for 108 yards with a touchdown and four interceptions this season.

Peterman will likely have a new target when he takes the field in Week 8, as free-agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor is expected to sign with the Bills after visiting the team and being offered a contract Monday.

The Bills (2-6) are slated to host the Bears (4-3) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
