Josh Allen injury update: Bills HC Sean McDermott drops upbeat take on QB’s status amid shoulder soreness

Despite their inability to secure a berth in the NFL’s top 5-1 group, the Buffalo Bills still managed in exceeding the lofty standards of their supporters. The team’s potent offensive line, led by seasoned quarterback Josh Allen, has allowed them to win games in a row.

Nevertheless, even though they ended the evening with a convincing 14-9 victory over the New York Giants in Week 6, the team took a hit as Allen went through a horrendous injury. As concerns have been growing steadfastly and the Bills are gearing up for their next week’s battle, the team’s coach has realized the importance of revealing the latest development of his injury status.

 McDermott provides hopeful update on Josh Allen’s shoulder

Before taking a cheap shot on a Giants player, Josh Allen sustained the injury in the second quarter after Giants defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence tackled him. Fortunately, he came back, and even though he had shoulder pain, he was still able to play the entire game. The player himself expressed some optimism about his injury status after the game.

“A little bit of pain there, but we’ll be all right,” he said.

On Wednesday, head coach Sean McDermott announced that Allen was going to show up for practice, but it would only be a walk-through. McDemott urged that every injury possess a particular level of concern, hence they are allowing the quarterback to take part in the practice to learn the progress of his injury.

“I’ll know more a little bit after today and seeing how he does out there. [All injuries are] always a concern, as you said. I know we’ve been around each other enough that he’ll communicate if things raise to a certain level. Right now, it’s a one-day-at-a-time approach. So, we’ll see.”

In spite of injury, the Bill’s offense hero played with his Pro caliber, tossing 19 of 30 passes for 169 yards, two touchdowns and an interception without experiencing a sack. The match also caught attention of Tom Brady due to the players on-field brawl.

 Bills keep focus on Patriots amidst recent dominance

This Sunday, Buffalo will take on the New England Patriots, one of the NFL’s struggling teams this season, at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots enter Week 7 with a 1-5 record, while the Bills have improved to 4-2 on the season. Hopefully, Josh Allen’s availability will be excellent news. On the other hand, the Patriots’ offense is hopeless even with completely healthy starter Mac Jones.

Furthemore, Josh Allen’s team is 6-1 against New England in its past seven matchups. But all of these added advantages could not let the Bills’ head coach to sit rest and hope for a sound victory. As per NESN, McDermott expressed respect for Bill Belichick and his team for their illustrious past rather than making fun of them for their losing run. The coach also stated that the team’s primary objective is to concentrate on playing well and win.

“Well, we’ve got great respect for the Patriots and what they’ve accomplished, and they’ve got a great history of winning. That’s not easy to do in this league. Really, our focus is on this week’s game and not what’s happened in the past or what’s going to happen in the future. But our focus, our sole focus, is on this week’s game.”

If the Patriots offense continues to struggle they experience in all of their last games, Josh Allen’s gang can easily hope for a sound victory.
