NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Bills QB Josh Allen is expected to miss "at least 2 or 3 games" with the sprained UCL in his throwing elbow. Allen is dealing with a partial tear in the ligament and doesn't need surgery. This doesn't sound like a long-term concern, but the Bills figure to play it safe with their 1st-round rookie. We'll see whether they turn to Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson against the Colts this weekend.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Bills QB Josh Allen has been diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right (throwing) elbow. The team is sending MRI results to Dr. James Andrews for a 2nd opinion. We don't have an official timeline for Allen's return, but former NFL head team Dr. David Chao considers the rookie "week-to-week" and believes "a good outcome for the Bills would be a return by Allen some time in November." Buffalo recently signed veteran QB Derek Anderson. We'll see if they roll with him or QB Nathan Peterman, but neither guy is a fantasy option.

Bills QB Josh Allen injured his right elbow or forearm in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Houston. We'll look for an update on his status. Nathan Peterman is in the game for Buffalo.

UPDATE: Allen is officially questionable to return with an elbow injury.

The Bills have named QB Josh Allen their starter for Week 2, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That's no shock after Nathan Peterman's indefensibly bad start against the Ravens in Week 1. If Buffalo's willing to insert its 1st-round pick into that environment, why not go ahead and kick off the Allen Era officially against the Chargers? This, of course, remains a hands-off fantasy situation. Allen, though, brings much more fantasy upside than Peterman with his combo of arm strength and rushing ability. The latter, in particular, makes the Bills rookie stash worthy in 2-QB leagues. Allen's skill set also looks like a better fit for WR Kelvin Benjamin, though we'd like to see Benjamin actually do something before using him in fantasy lineups. Benjamin managed 1 catch on 7 targets at Baltimore.

Bills QB Josh Allen will start the team's 3rd preseason game against the Bengals on Sunday. The rookie has been surprisingly competent through 3 exhibitions, completing 18 of 32 passes (56.2%) for 176 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. None of that has come against 1st-team defenses, though. So Sunday will be Allen's biggest test yet. If he passes it, he'll likely be under center for Buffalo in Week 1 against the Ravens. In other Bills QB news, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that additional testing revealed QB A.J. McCarron did not break his collarbone in the 2nd preseason game and will return to practice "soon."
