The Bills decided to hold a walkthrough practice on Wednesday and head coach Sean McDermott explained the decision by saying he wants players “as rested as possible” after playing an overtime game off a short week.

One particular player that could benefit from that rest is quarterback Josh Allen, who is considered day-to-day after spraining his foot in the loss to the Buccaneers. McDermott didn’t offer much in the way of predictions about Allen’s status for Sunday’s game against the Panthers during his press conference.

“We just have to really take it one day at a time because, No. 1, I’m not a doctor, and I just rely on what [head athletic trainer Nate Breske] and our training staff gives me from a medical standpoint,” McDermott said. “He’s working through it, he’s a tough guy. The soreness is still there, that’s to be expected. I love his attitude and I think that’s key when you’re trying to come off any injury, the attitude and the mindset.”

Mitchell Trubisky got reps with the first team during the walkthrough session and McDermott declared the former Bears starter “more than capable” of handling the job if the Bills have to go that route this weekend.

  1. This is exactly why we had to let Matt Barkley, an excellent player and all around guy for someone like Mitch Trubisky.

    Glad we have him. It’s NVP time!!!

  2. I’m sure Allen is sore.

    He literally carried the entire offense on his shoulders for the past two games. I half expected him to block, throw the ball, and then catch it himself. Then dust himself off and run the ball on the next play. Repeat.

    Im a Pats fan but I love Josh Allen. Fight Me.

  3. With a strong finish Bills can hold off Dolphins for 2nd place in the division. A fine year for that franchise.

  4. Give Josh a week off – and let’s see if the rest of the offense can step up.

    The whole “carrying team on shoulders” thing isn’t sustainable.

  5. The Bills have a soft schedule, except the Pats away, through the end of the season.

    Josh may get extra golf time if the Pats win at home & Miami continues to roll.
