The Buffalo Bills training camp for 2023 is less than three weeks away when the team will take the practice field at St. John Fisher College for the first time this year. Entering the season, the Bills are fortunate that they not only know who their quarterback is going to be but also have one of the best in the league with Josh Allen.

The former first round pick is entering his sixth season in the league and pressure certainly seems to be mounting for him and the Bills as a whole. Looking ahead to training camp and the 2023 season, these are three big questions for the quarterback position that could be answered during training camp.

What does the offense look like with Josh Allen expected to run less?

Earlier this offseason, Josh Allen told reporters that he is probably going to have to run less moving forward as he gets older.

""I’ve always had the mindset of, I’ve been a football player first and a quarterback second," Allen told reporters Tuesday. "At some point that is going to have to switch. When that point is, I don’t know. I guess I’ll let my body tell me."

Josh Allen is one of the toughest matchups for opposing defenses because it is not only that he is mobile but he is one of the bigger quarterbacks in the league at 6'5" and 237 pounds. This gives him the size advantage on the outside against most cornerbacks and safeties.

Over the past four seasons, Allen has had at least 100 rushing attempts each season and the total has continually increased to a career high 124 rushing attempts last year. There is no question he has been effective with those carries as he has averaged over six yards per carry the past two seasons and in total has 38 career rushing touchdowns.

This is a part of the game that won't go away but if it is drastically reduced what does it do to this offense where defenses don't have to account as much for Josh Allen scrambling? It will be interesting to see what Ken Dorsey dials up this year to account for that.
