Medical Corps Sees Possibilities for Allen to Play Panthers
BUFFALO, New York – Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has a sprained left foot and will be considered on a day-to-day basis, coach Sean McDermott said Monday.
Josh Allen suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Buffalo’s 33-27 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.RELATED

“We’ll see how he responds to treatment,” McDermott slipped. “We’ll see what Sunday looks like as we go through the week.”

Allen didn’t miss a single snap, but he limped for the rest of the game. He was 36 of 54 for 308 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed for 109 yards and a rushing touchdown on 12 carries, marking the third time in his career that he has rushed for more than 100 yards in a game. All three of those games have been losses.
The Bills’ backup quarterback is Mitchell Trubisky, a second overall pick for the Chicago Bears. He landed in Buffalo after Chicago didn’t choose his fifth-year option. Trubisky hasn’t had significant playing time yet, but he has at the end of virtually won games.
Allen hasn’t missed a game due to injury since his rookie year in 2018.
“We’re going to take it one day at a time here and see where it goes,” McDermott said. “I spoke to the medical team and he has a chance. I spoke to Josh as well and he’s in a good mood.”
Buffalo will face the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
