Despite elbow injury, Josh Allen will play against the Vikings.

Josh Allen has been the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback without fail since Week 12 of his rookie year. Sunday won’t see a change in that.

Josh Allen, the quarterback for the Buffalo Bills, has an ulnar collateral ligament damage in his right elbow, but he will play and start against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Officials with the Bills had been coy about his situation all week because they wanted to keep it under wraps until the NFL revealed its list of active and inactive players on Sunday. The organisation was reassured that Allen is not at danger to make the injury worse if he plays Sunday against the Vikings, according to sources, who noted that Bills executives spent a lot of time this past week relying on the opinions of their physicians and other arm specialists.

Tre’Davious White, a cornerback, sits out for the second straight game despite being healthy and on the active roster as the Bills continue to ease him back from an ACL tear.

Allen had limited participation in Friday’s practise, as seen by his practise jersey and bare right arm. After missing Wednesday and Thursday of practise, he has only taken part in one day.

Coach Sean McDermott said on Friday, “We are really in an hour-to-hour scenario here just looking at how he’s going to move through the day.” And when he has these various medical examinations, making sure that he can check the appropriate boxes in a progression will allow us to determine whether we can move on with this throughout the day.

On the last drive of the New York Jets game last Sunday, Allen was hurt. Since missing four games in 2018 due to a second UCL injury to his right elbow, he has not missed a game.

Allen has been responsible for the greatest percentages in the league of the Bills’ offensive yards (82%) and touchdowns (92%).
