Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen suffered a lower leg injury in Week 14 and showed up to the postgame press conference in a walking boot.

The Buffalo Bills came up short against the Tampa Bay Bucs after Tom Brady threw a 58-yard touchdown pass to Breshad Perriman in overtime to win 33-27. However, the Bills would not have even gotten to overtime if it wasn’t for the play of Josh Allen.

The Bills’ quarterback played an incredible game where he tried to carry his team to a win. After the Bills got behind 24-3 after two quarters, Josh Allen led this team and finished the game with 308 passing yards, 109 rushing yards, and three total touchdowns.

However, Allen did suffer an ankle injury in the second half after a scramble where the Bucs defender rolled over his ankle. After the game, Allen showed up to the postgame press conference in a walking boot as Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN tweeted out Sunday night.

The severity of Allen’s injury is unknown at this point but the Buffalo Bills quarterback was able to finish the game. He was even asked whose decision it was about staying in the game and he said, “There was no way I was going out” according to Julianne Pelusi of WGRZ. The Bills quarterback did also say that he was “pretty sore.”

However,  Dan Fetes of 13 WHAM also quoted Josh Allen saying that he wasn’t quite sure of the severity but that he didn’t think it was a big deal.
