Bills Fans Are Incredibly Worried About Latest Josh Allen Injury Update

Bills QB Josh Allen

This morning, Ian Rapoport noted that Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is likely to be limited in practice this week after sustaining an elbow injury Sunday against the Jets. 

While head coach Sean McDermott told reporters today that Buffalo will receive an update on Allen's status Tuesday, another NFL insider has just chimed in to share details on Allen's health. 

According to Chris Mortensen, Allen is reportedly being evaluated for an injury to his ulnar collateral ligament and related nerves in his right elbow. 

"Bills QB Josh Allen is being evaluated for an elbow injury to his ulnar collateral ligament and related nerves, per source. Bills coach Sean McDermott said earlier team hopes to have more info Tuesday," Mortensen said Monday. 

Contrary to what Bills' head coach Sean McDermott said earlier this afternoon, it appears Allen's injury could be more serious than initially believed in Buffalo. 

One ESPN analyst, quoting Mortensen's original tweet, appears to think that the new diagnosis matches up with the hit that caused Allen's right elbow pain.

"Looking at the mechanism of injury - where Josh Allen’s forearm was hit as he prepared to throw - this fits (UCL and ulnar nerve). Before everyone panics, let’s wait and see what the details are. There are a range of outcomes depending on severity/functionality," ESPN's Stephanie Bell said, quoting Mortensen's original post. 

As Bell noted, there seems to be a wide range of outcomes for Allen depending on the results of his evaluation. While Bills fans shouldn't panic yet, tomorrow's update on Allen will likely be very telling. 

The Bills will look to bounce back from their Week 9 loss to the Jets this Sunday when Buffalo takes on the Minnesota Vikings.
