Bills QB Josh Allen delivered 330 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs in Sunday’s OT loss to the Vikings. 84 rushing yards put him over the top as a high-end QB1. All in all, his right elbow looked fine in this one, and it didn’t limit his downfield opportunities. Allen went 3 of 6 (with 1 INT and 1 drop) on passes of 20+ air yards. His decision-making failed him at times, though. On the bright side, Allen managed to escape this one without a setback. Week 11 turns up a fine home matchup with Cleveland.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) will start today's game vs. the Vikings, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's nice to have confirmation after earlier reports that Allen wasn't on the field for the start of warmups. The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia reports that Allen was under center when Buffalo went to 11-on-11s. Allen carries more risk than usual playing through that elbow injury, but he still belongs in the vast majority of fantasy lineups. DraftKings sports book has Allen's passing yardage prop set at 252.5.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (groin, heel) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He carries some risk after putting in just 1 limited practice this week but is available for IDP use.

11:31am EST 11/13/22

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is officially active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. He got in just a limited practice on Friday and carries elevated risk in Week 10 fantasy lineups. But there’s still plenty of upside here. See where Allen sits in the QB Rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) "likely" to start today's game vs. the Vikings. That jibes with NFL Network's Ian Rapoport's Saturday report. "Bills officials spent intensive time this past week leaning on and listening to their doctors and other arm specialists, and the team was reassured that Allen is not at any added risk to make the injury worse if he plays," a source tells Schefter. We'll get Buffalo's inactives around 11:30 am ET, but Allen can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is "in line" to start Sunday's game vs. the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. QB Matt Barkley was not elevated from the practice squad on Saturday, leaving only Allen and QB Case Keenum on the active roster. "Allen is able to grip a football and he did some throwing on Friday. That gave enough confidence to proceed without elevating Matt Barkley from the practice squad," Rapoport adds. Allen certainly carries more risk than usual in Week 10 fantasy lineups, but it'd be tough to bench him unless you for some reason also own Patrick Mahomes or Jalen Hurts. Playing Justin Fields or Tua Tagovailoa over Allen wouldn't be crazy. We just updated our Bills projections.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (groin, heel) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He put in just a limited Friday practice this week. LB Matt Milano is off the final injury report after finishing the week with a pair of full practices.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. He put in a limited practice on Friday after missing the previous 2 days. HC Sean McDermott described Allen as "hour-by-hour" on Friday morning, so Allen's status might come down to how that elbow feels on Sunday. We'll continue to look for updates on Allen and will get Buffalo's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. QB Case Keenum will start if Allen can't.

The Bills have ruled out S Jordan Poyer (elbow) and EDGE Greg Rousseau (ankle) for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Jaquan Johnson figures to start next to Damar Hamlin again in Poyer's absence.

Bills HC Sean McDermott said in a Friday morning radio appearance that QB Josh Allen (elbow) has not been ruled out for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. Of course, there's no reason for Buffalo to rule out Allen at this point of the week. McDermott continues to describe Allen as "day-to-day," so we're expecting him to be listed as questionable on the final injury report later today. We're still projecting Allen to miss Sunday's game, but we'll continue to keep you updated on his status.

Bills LB Matt Milano (oblique) returned to full practice Thursday, which should put him on track to return for Sunday's game against the Vikings. LB Tremaine Edmunds (groin, heel), S Jordan Poyer (elbow) and EDGE Gregory Rousseau (ankle) remained out, however. That bodes ill for their Week 10 chances. We'll see what Friday brings.

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 Tremaine Edmunds (groin, heel), S Jordan Poyer (elbow) and EDGE Gregory Rousseau (ankle) all missed practice Wednesday. HC Sean McDermott called Edmunds and Poyer day-to-day afterward but deemed Rousseau week-to-week. That indicates Rousseau isn't likely to play Sunday against the Vikings. We'll see about the other 2. McDermott added that whether CB Tre'Davious White (ACL recovery) will be ready to play this week also remains a "day to day" situation.

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 RB Devin Singletary led the backfield with 8 carries (for just 24 yards) in Sunday's loss to the Jets and tied for 2nd on the team in targets (5). He caught 4 balls for 24 yards on a tough day for the passing offense. Rookie James Cook added 2 catches for 18 yards among 4 targets, plus a 4-15 rushing line. Nyheim Hines played just 3 offensive snaps and watched his lone target sail past him on a downfield route. Singletary dominated playing time, garnering 47 snaps to Cook's 14. We'd certainly bet on a playing-time increase for Hines as he gets more time in the offense.
