Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) missed practice again on Thursday. We're currently projecting Allen to miss Sunday's game vs. the Vikings, leaving QB Case Keenum as Buffalo's starter. We'll see if Allen practices on Friday and then how he's listed on the final injury report.

Bills LB Matt Milano (oblique) put in a limited practice Wednesday. That at least gives him a chance to return this week after missing Sunday's loss to the Jets. We'll watch his status this week, both for IDP purposes and matchups for the Vikings offense.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) won't practice on Wednesday, HC Sean McDermott said. "He's day to day," McDermott added. "And the next question is, 'is he going to play?' We'll see." Although it sounds like Allen avoided a serious injury, he's genuinely questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Bills QB Josh Allen's status for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings is "up in the air." Rapoport confirms that Allen is dealing with a sprained UCL in his throwing elbow. "Not considered to be a major, major injury," Rapoport adds. "The belief is it's something that he can play through." Allen is expected to be limited in practice to start the week -- and then monitored each day leading up to Sunday. Rapoport also describes the injury as a "functionality issue," rather than a pain-tolerance thing. "Sometimes, with this injury, it affects the grip of the football," Rapoport explains. We'll continue to keep a close eye on Allen's status. QB Case Keenum is Buffalo's backup.

Bills HC Sean McDermott didn't give much of an update on QB Josh Allen's elbow injury on Monday. "We're going through it. We're evaluating. We'll see where it goes," McDermott said. "I'll probably be able to check in with you guys on Wednesday." The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia notes that "we're evaluating" is a common line from McDermott on Mondays and says, "I wouldn't draw any conclusions, either good or bad, from just those answers today." ESPN's Chris Mortensen, meanwhile, reports that Allen's injury is to his ulnar collateral ligament and related nerves. That's notable because Allen missed 4 games as a rookie back in 2018 with a UCL injury. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Bills QB Josh Allen's right elbow injury is "considered a situation to monitor rather than an ailment that would keep him out" of Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. Allen is still undergoing tests on the elbow to get a more concrete diagnosis. We'll continue to keep you updated on his status.

Bills EDGE Gregory Rousseau suffered an ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Jets and is considered week to week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That puts Rousseau in doubt for Sunday's game against the Vikings. We'll keep an eye on his status this week.

Bills QB Josh Allen endured a poor passing performance in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He threw for just 205 yards on 18-of-34 passing (52.9%), taking 5 sacks and flinging 2 INTs. Allen salvaged his fantasy line with 86 yards and 2 TDs rushing, though. That marked his largest rushing total since Week 14 of last season and 6th career game with multiple ground scores. WR Stefon Diggs posted a 5-93 receiving line on 10 targets as the only Bill with more than 33 receiving yards. WR Gabriel Davis hit that total on 2 catches among 5 targets. TE Dawson Knox caught 3 of 4 looks for 25 yards. Allen and his receivers get a softer Vikings defense back home in Week 10.

Bills EDGE Gregory Rousseau left Sunday's loss to the Jets with an ankle injury. We'll see about the severity this week.

Bills QB Josh Allen appeared to injure his right (throwing) elbow near the end of Sunday's loss to the Jets. “There was some slight pain, but I’ll get through it," Allen said afterward. We'll obviously keep a close eye on the situation this coming week. The Bills host the Vikings next Sunday.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Colts. RB Kevin Harris is a healthy scratch, leaving RBs Pierre Strong and J.J. Taylor behind workhorse Rhamondre Stevenson.

11:30am EST 11/6/22

As expected, Bills LB Matt Milano (oblique) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. Rookie Terrel Bernard is expected to start in his place.

Bills LB Matt Milano (oblique) is not expected to play today against the Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That would leave rookie Terrel Bernard starting in his place. Milano's absence is good news for Jets RB Michael Carter and TE Tyler Conklin. He is Buffalo's best LB, especially in coverage. We have removed Milano from our Week 9 IDP rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Patriots RB Damien Harris "unlikely" to play vs. the Colts today due to his illness. It's a bit of a surprise after Harris was able to return to a limited practice on Friday -- but Schefter almost never misses on these early-Sunday reports. Harris' absence would put RB Rhamondre Stevenson back in a workhorse role. He racked up 19 carries and 5 targets when Harris missed Week 6.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. We’re expecting him to play on Sunday, but it’s certainly possible that his volume and/or effectiveness is impacted. Harris is a TD-dependent fantasy play. Rhamondre Stevenson should lead the backfield in touches again.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. Players almost always play through illnesses -- but we just saw Raiders WR Davante Adams struggle playing through the flu last week. We'll get another update on Harris tomorrow.

Bills rookie RB James Cook played his 2nd most snaps of the season and garnered his 2nd largest touch count in Sunday night's win over the Packers. he ran for 35 yards on 5 carries and caught a 41-yard pass while playing 25% of Buffalo's offensive snaps. The only game that has seen more snaps or touches for Cook was the 41-7 Week 2 win over Tennessee that allowed him to clean up in garbage time. RB Devin Singletary operated as the clear backfield leader, posting a 14-67 rushing line and adding a 16-yard catch while playing nearly 3 times as many snaps as Cook. RB Zack Moss was active but did not see the field. There's room for Cook to pick up some touches over the 2nd half of the season, especially in games that find the Bills jumping to large leads. He also looks like the clear #2 now, should anything happen to Singletary. Cook should be rostered in most fantasy football leagues of 12+ teams. He's available in 74% of ESPN leagues as of this writing.

Bills QB Josh Allen had an uncharacteristically mediocre passing night in Sunday's win over the Packers. He completed just 13 of 25 passes (52%) for 218 yards, throwing 2 TD and 2 INTs. The 2nd was particularly bad. Allen was clearly trying to throw the ball away into the ground but put it at the feet of Green Bay's top corner, Jaire Alexander, allowing him to make a diving INT near the Packers goal line. Allen nearly made up for it on the ground, with 49 yards on 6 attempts but came up short of the end zone on a 1st-quarter run that preceded TE Dawson Knox's TD catch. Buffalo gets the Jets, Vikings, Browns and Lions ahead of a Week 13 visit to New England.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) is off the final injury report for Monday night's game against the Bears. That should mean he's ready to split the carries with Rhamondre Stevenson once again. New England heads into the game as an 8-point favorite, so there should be plenty of rushing work to support both backs in fantasy football lineups. We'll see if the split gets back to what it was before Harris' injury.

Raiders WR Mack Hollins (heel) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. We haven't heard any concern about his availability for that one, but you'll need to check back around 2:30 pm ET on Sunday for Vegas' inactives if you're hoping to use Hollins.
