Bills quarterback Josh Allen still in concussion protocol

AP

It’s looking more and more like Bills quarterback Josh Allen will miss this week’s game against the Titans.

Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters than Allen remains in the concussion protocol, as he’s been since taking a shot to the head from Patriots cornerback Jonathan Jones last week.

Allen has done some work in practice this week, but exercising without symptoms is part of the protocol process. He still has to be cleared by an independent neurologist.

If he’s not cleared, Matt Barkley will start for the Bills this week.

  1. I get supporting your QB… but before the criers hit the page I’d like to say there we no intent in the hit from Jones. Allen went HEAD FIRST to try to make a first down. This is on his inexperience and/or lack of coaching.

  2. They’re saying he could play this Sunday.

    Like someone said earlier, if he comes out throwing INT’s then you know he’s feeling fine.

  3. Seeing how Josh Allen is the 43rd ranked QB and has 3TD to go with his 6 INT’s this is probably great news for Bills fans. They’d be better off with Kurt Cousins (31st)

  4. You can tell when people are biased and refuse to see the truth when it’s right in front of them. Either that or they just listen to people talk or they refuse to watch the videos because it will destroy what they believe to be true.

  5. So I guess the folks that think it was a clean hit think as long as you are leaning forward while being tackled, hitting someone in the head with your head and forearm is acceptable. It isn’t which is why there was a penalty called on the play.

  6. It’s crazy he wasn’t taught to slide long before now. Seems like that would have been one of the very first things they worked on with him during his rookie year. You don’t help the team much when you’re missing games hurt.

  7. False Narrative. “as he’s been since taking a shot to the head from Patriots cornerback” Allen initiated contact. The crown of Allen’s helmet hit the side of Jone’s helmet. McDermott should coach his QB to slide or suffer the consequences.

    =====================
    The penalty was getting called regardless if it was a legal hit or not. That’s the nature of the NFL that we have to suffer with now. Even the ardent supporters of it being a clean hit realize that. The line in the sand is ejecting a player on a hit that’s borderline legal\illegal.
