Bills QB Josh Allen tossed 4 TDs in Monday night's demolition of the Titans, finding WR Stefon Diggs for 3 of them. Allen targeted Diggs on 14 of his 38 pass attempts (36.8%), with TE Dawson Knox (5) and RB Devin Singletary (4) the only other Bills to top 3 looks. Allen finished with 317 yards, while adding 10 rushing yards on just 1 attempt. He didn't turn the ball over and took just 1 sack.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Titans tonight, "barring a surprise," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "Team has held out hope but playing was considered an uphill battle since Saturday's injury," Fowler tweets. We'll see if Davis can make it back for this coming Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. His absence figures to mean WR Khalil Shakir's debut, although the rookie is really only an option in DFS. Stefon Diggs, Isaiah McKenzie, Jamison and Dawson Knox are candidates for extra targets with Davis out.

Bills beat writer Jay Skurski has “concern” over the team’s O-line situation. “I hate to say it, but [Josh] Allen’s ability to be healthy and play 17 games might be at stake here,” Skurski admits. Buffalo’s projected starters along the O-line have yet to practice together due to injuries (Rodger Saffold, Mitch Morse, Ryan Bates and Spencer Brown) and an absence for personal reasons (Dion Dawkins). We’re not adjusting projections, as this unit should all be together come Week 1. But that matchup — on the road against Aaron Donald and the Rams — might lead to a rocky start.

Bills QB Josh Allen gave an update on the offense under new OC Ken Dorsey. “It doesn’t feel like we’ve missed a step,” Allen said. “Obviously, it’s a different voice in the headset, a different mind, calling the plays. The verbiage is still the same. The protections are still the same. We’ve switched up a couple things here and there with concepts and thought processes, but we’re able to call the same play and understand our players know this play like the back of their hand and it’s just our job to go out there and execute.” Continuity was always the biggest benefit of promoting Dorsey, and it sounds like that’s bearing out. Allen is rightfully coming off the board 1st among QBs in early fantasy drafts.

Bills beat writer Jay Skurski believes there should be “minimal growing pains” in year 1 with OC Ken Dorsey. The former college football star just served as Buffalo’s QB coach/pass game coordinator, so there’s desirable continuity. Dorsey, who’s never called plays at any level, is taking over for new Giants HC Brian Daboll. Skurski mentions the possibility of using more 2-TE sets and throwing to RBs more frequently — obvious dot-connecting following the arrivals of O.J. Howard and rookie James Cook. Allen remains an elite QB1.

The Bills have promoted QBs coach Ken Dorsey to OC. The Giants reportedly made a run to reunite Dorsey with new HC Brian Daboll, but Dorsey will instead stay with QB Josh Allen in Buffalo. Dorsey has been with the Bills since 2019. He has no OC experience at any level -- but at least there will be some continuity with the Bills offense.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis has been placed on the COVID list. So both Davis and WR Cole Beasley will miss Sunday's pivotal game vs. the Patriots. That leaves Stefon Diggs and Emmanuel Sanders as Buffalo's top 2 WRs, with Isaiah McKenzie likely handling #3 duties. TE Dawson Knox should also play an even bigger role than usual. It's a tough spot for QB Josh Allen against a strong New England defense.

Bills QB Josh Allen (foot) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play vs. the Panthers on Sunday. That’s a negative matchup, and Allen won’t be at 100%. But he still sits comfortably inside our top 10 QBs for Week 15.

Bills QB Josh Allen (foot) remained limited in Thursday's practice. All signs continue to point toward him playing vs. the Panthers this weekend, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Bills QB Josh Allen (foot) will be limited in Wednesday's walkthrough, HC Sean McDermott said. It's a good sign that he'll be out there at all this early in the week. Allen seems to be trending toward playing vs. the Panthers on Sunday, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on him.

Bills HC Sean McDermott told the media Monday afternoon that QB Josh Allen has been diagnosed with a foot sprain. He made no mention of a toe injury. McDermott also said that Allen has a "chance" to play vs. the Panthers on Sunday, so it sounds like his availability is in some doubt. QB Mitchell Trubisky is Buffalo's backup. We'll keep you updated on Allen's status all week.

Bills QB Josh Allen is believed to be dealing with a "mild case" of turf toe, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Allen is scheduled for additional testing on Monday. He was able to play through the issue in Tampa Bay and didn't seem too worried about the injury after the loss. It sounds like Allen will be able to play vs. the Panthers this weekend, but we'll keep you updated.

Bills QB Josh Allen will get an MRI on his left foot and ankle on Monday, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports. Allen appeared to injure that foot late in Sunday's loss to the Bucs. He didn't miss any snaps but looked a bit hobbled. We should get an update on his status on Monday. "The Bills are hopeful but expect Mitchell Trubisky to get some reps in practice," Mortensen adds.

The Bills signed QB Josh Allen to a 6-year extension through the 2027 season, per ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. The deal carries a total value of $258 million and gives Allen more guaranteed cash ($150 million) than Patrick Mahomes ($141 million). It’s only striking because Allen has just 1 season of high-end production to his name. Of course, Buffalo’s all-in on the 25-year-old — and fantasy drafters are, too. He’s coming off the board 2nd among QBs in all FFPC formats.

Bills QB Matt Barkley is expected to get "meaningful snaps" in today's game against the Dolphins, according to NFL Network's Michael Giardi. It's sure looking like Buffalo will rest a bunch of starters in this one. QB Josh Allen notably needs 40 passing yards to break the team's single-season record, so we might see him stay in just long enough to get there. We're expecting WR Stefon Diggs to be pulled early, too.

The Bills have made CB Tre'Davious White, DE Jerry Hughes and DE Mario Addison healthy scratches vs. the Dolphins today. That points to the team planning to rest starters in general over playing for the win. Keep that in mind if you've been planning to start QB Josh Allen or WR Stefon Diggs in a season-long lineup.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs was knocked out of Saturday's game against the Broncos in the 4th quarter with a foot injury. We'll update his status as soon as we know more. Diggs had a huge game before exiting, catching 11 of 13 targets for 147 yards. If he misses time, it'd mean more targets for WRs Cole Beasley, Gabriel Davis and John Brown, who seems set to return from his ankle injury next week.

Update: Per NFL Network's Kim Jones, Diggs was back on the sideline late in the game, "smiling and talking with teammates." That suggests that he avoided a serious injury.

Bills WR John Brown (ankle) has been activated from IR. That makes him eligible to return for Saturday's game against the Broncos, although it's still unclear if he'll be ready. We'll keep an eye on his progress over the next few days.

The forecast for today's Patriots-Bills game calls for a chance of rain and 20 mph sustained winds with gusts over 30. That certainly puts a damper on the passing games. New England figured to go run-heavy anyway, so the bigger impact is on Josh Allen and Co. We'd also avoid both kickers in this game.
