Despite a concerning injury that was the talk of the NFL this week, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen will be active Sunday despite his ulnar collateral ligament injury, as the Bills take on the Minnesota Vikings, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Allen was limited in Friday’s practice, when he was seen with a practice jersey on and no sleeve on his right arm, and the belief is that he will start against Minnesota.
The organization spent intensive time this past week leaning on and listening to their doctors and other arm specialists, and concluded that Allen is not at any added risk to make the injury worse if he plays Sunday against the Vikings
“We are literally in an hour-to-hour situation here just looking at how he’s going to progress through the day,” Bills head coach Sean McDermott said on Friday. “And as he goes through these different tests, medically, making sure that he’s able to check the boxes in a progression to where we can see if we can proceed through the course of the day here.”
