Josh Allen's injury will keep him out of this week's game. Head coach Sean McDermott confirmed that at his Wednesday press conference. So how is the rookie quarterback dealing with the sprained elbow injury suffered in last week's game?
"I feel good. I feel really good," said Allen after taking in practice as a spectator.
Allen wore a brace on his right elbow that kept it from straightening all the way or bending much past 10 degrees.
"This is just to keep me from bending it or straightening it. It's just precautionary to let it heal as fast as possible."
The Bills rookie QB has no idea how long he's going to be sidelined.
"No timetable," said Allen. "I want to be back as fast as possible, but at the same time I've got to be smart and understand that the only way I can help this team is to be 100 percent healthy. Whether it's this week or the week after, there is no timetable right now. It's seeing day to day, week to week how I'm feeling. How I'm progressing. Being in the training room like heck and going from there."
Head coach Sean McDermott already declared Allen out for this week's game.
Another player who could be ruled out for this weekend's game in Indianapolis is Taiwan Jones. He did not practice Wednesday due to a neck injury, presumably sustained in last week's game at Houston. McDermott labeled Jones week to week.
