Bills could be without superstar Josh Allen for Week 10

The Buffalo Bills suffered a disappointing road loss in Week 9 against the New York Jets.

The Bills’ issues may extend much further than as star quarterback Josh Allen is dealing with a right elbow injury to the ulnar collateral ligament and related nerves. Allen did not practice on Wednesday, which further clouds his availability for Week 10 action against the Minnesota Vikings.

Head coach Sean McDermott voiced some uncertainty concerning the matter due to the various factors at play.

“We will see how he does,” McDermott said via ESPN. “We use common sense and, obviously, we factor a lot of things in, a medical report being one of them and our doctor’s wisdom and knowledge.”

The injury occurred during the Bills’ last drive of Sunday’s loss against the Jets after defensive lineman Bryce Huff hit Allen on his arm, which resulted in a strip sack.

The Bills are likely going to take a precautionary approach with the injury, given the sensitivity. It could lead the team to keep him out of Sunday’s game to prevent a setback or additional issues.

Allen had a similar injury to the UCL in his right elbow in his rookie campaign that forced him to miss four games. He is amid another strong campaign, putting up MVP-caliber numbers, ranking fourth with 2,403 passing yards, second with 19 passing touchdowns, and third with a 74.4 quarterback rating.

If the Bills choose to hold out the Pro Bowler, the team will turn to backup Case Keenum.
