NFL: Josh Allen absent once again from training

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen sat out the media practice game for the second straight day with a right elbow injury.

Allen walked out of the team locker room briefly wearing a sleeve that covered his right arm and he was not wearing practice gear. Allen didn’t participate in Wednesday’s practice at all, but was on the field with the team during the closed-to-media game.

“He was always joking and laughing and pranking the guys and asking crazy questions,” Von Miller said Wednesday. He was exactly the same Josh he always was. »

Allen is suffering from an injury to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and related nerves, sources told ESPN on Monday. His status remains uncertain for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Allen was being tested daily and said, “We’ll see,” when asked if the quarterback would play against the Vikings. Allen hasn’t missed a game since 2018, when he once again struggled with a right elbow injury.

Former Vikings quarterback Case Keenum would start the game in Allen’s place if he couldn’t play. Keenum won two games with the Cleveland Browns last year.

Allen was hurt last series in the 20-17 loss to the New York Jets when defensive lineman Bryce Huff hit the quarterback’s arm, causing a sack.

After the hit, Allen was seen holding his right elbow and trying to shake his arm.

Two plays later, Allen threw a 69.3-yard pass to Gabe Davis — his longest attempt in the last six seasons, according to NFL Next Gen stats.
