The Buffalo Bills were back on the practice field Wednesday but the focus was on quarterback Josh Allen. The franchise quarterback suffered a foot injury during the Week 14 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
He was in a walking boot after the game but on Monday head coach Sean McDermott didn’t appear overly concerned and said was an injury that was ‘day-to-day’.
The Bills were back on the practice field Wednesday but it was only a walkthrough practice. McDermott said the reasoning was due to the extra snaps for the team playing an overtime game against the Bucs, according to Sal Capaccio.
Heather Prusak also tweeted from McDermott’s press conference that Allen is working through the injury and there is still some soreness.
Josh Allen: “If I can go, I will go”
After Wednesday’s practice, Josh Allen met with the media and provided his own update on the foot injury. According to Dan Fetes, he said that the foot is feeling much better compared to Sunday.
Allen also said that “If I can go, I’m going to go.”
There is no question that having Josh Allen on the field is going to be a huge boost for this team. He is without question the best player on the roster and is moving into the discussion as a Top 5 quarterback.
While Mitchell Trusbisky is one of the better backups, he is no Josh Allen and Brian Daboll will need to make significant changes to the game plan if Allen is not able to play.
The Buffalo Bills will have two more practices this week before they have to officially announce on Friday injury designations for players in Week 15. The fact that Allen was able to get onto the practice field on Wednesday, even in a walkthrough, is a great sign about his availability for this weekend.
