Bills coach Sean McDermott said earlier Monday that doctors still are evaluating quarterback Josh Allen’s injured throwing elbow.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Allen’s elbow injury is to his ulnar collateral ligament and related nerves.

Allen’s status for Sunday’s game is uncertain, but he likely won’t have full practices this week.

The injury did not affect Allen’s arm strength Sunday.

His final pass, an incompletion to wide receiver Gabe Davis, was the farthest pass thrown in the NFL the past six seasons.

The NFL has a microchip in every football for tracking through its Next Gen Stats, and those stats showed that the pass Allen threw to Davis traveled 69.3 yards in the air.

  1. You know what Tom Brady didn’t do after tearing his ACL?

    he didn’t run the fastest 40 the league had seen in 6 years.

    Josh will be fine.

    No one wants to play Baltimore in January.


    I’m not that worried about it.

  3. I’m not even that big of a Josh Allen fan but this guy is really really good for the game. The NFL needs home grown draft picks that can turn a franchise around. This guy is remarkable to watch. Hope is injury is something minor. Hope Josh is ready come playoff time.

    Josh Allen meet Tommy John


    Tommy John surgery is an internal breakdown from overuse/abuse or your arm can’t handle it.
    Josh Allen had an external injury. He might have damaged it. He might need surgery to repair whatever damage was done but they won’t be using another part of his body to rebuild his arm.

  5. Patrick Mahomes is the luckiest QB in NFL history with the ref help and the breaks he and Chiefs get.

  6. Sounds like the same injury Matthew Stafford had. The Bills need to start using more of the running game.

  7. Elbow surgery is a big deal. A very big deal. If he needs it on any level he’s done for the season. That’s the big if. If he needs it. Therapy is a very good possibility and very likely the answer. Hopefully surgery is not necessary. If so, especially his throwing arm, his season is over.

    Unfortunately, he is thier running game.

  9. Typical treatment for this injury is Tommy John surgery. Allen can try to play through it for the remainder of the season but ultimately will need Tommy John and a downtime of 9-12 months.

  10. I hope he can play Sunday and I’m a Vikings fan. If not super weird to play against the Miracle duo.

  11. If every ball is microchipped, why are they still using “the chains”? How do they not know when the ball breaks the plane of the goal line?

  12. Josh Allen is a beast and a lot of fun to watch. I wish him well on his recovery and hope to see at full strength soon. Go Bills.

  13. Tell me the Bill’s couldn’t have used Hunt in the backfield instead they got a collection of below average RB’s they can’t run the ball and that probably will keep them from wining a SB. For a measley 4th pick that position would have been so much stronger the GM is clueless brining in washed up Hines.

  14. Wait a minute! Are you telling me that maybe, just maybe, all the Buffalo fans who insisted there was no risk and that it was cool when Allen would take on linebackers in meaningless games with huge leads…

    That just maybe they were wrong?
