Josh Allen’s injured elbow is bigger concern for Bills than Jets loss

Josh Allen reached for his right elbow after his forearm was bent backward in the crossfire of a strip sack on the Buffalo Bills’ final drive in their loss to the New York Jets on Sunday. 

As if it weren’t bad enough the Bills fell to 6-2 and 0-2 in the AFC East after their 20-17 defeat to the Jets at MetLife Stadium, Allen’s elbow could be a major concern moving forward.  

“There’s some slight pain, but I’ll get through it,” Allen said after the game, in which he scored two rushing touchdowns in the first half, but finished 18 of 34 passing for 205 yards with two interceptions.

The Bills franchise and loyal fanbase will surely keep an eye on Allen’s arm and the progress he makes in practice this week before Buffalo’s next game at home against the Minnesota Vikings (7-1).

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen (17) tried a 4 down and 21 pass but it was incomplete to ice the game for the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

“As far as I know, he’s still being evaluated,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said of Allen after the game.

Back to the bigger picture for the Bills: Allen nearly had three interceptions against the Jets, and it was a discouraging performance when you consider he had two interceptions in their lackluster second half in a win against the Green Bay Packers last week.
