Allen out "at least 2 or 3 games" | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

The Bills have signed C Mitch Morse. He'll get over $11 million per year, according to NFL Network's Mike Garofolo, making Morse the league's highest-paid C. The former Chief missed 14 games over the last 2 seasons with a foot injury and concussion but ranked 13th among 38 Cs in Pro Football Focus' 2019 grades.

Bills QB Josh Allen has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Jets. The team announced that Matt Barkley will start in his place. Barkley gets the nod over Nate Peterman, who’s tossed 7 picks — vs. 1 TD — on just 49 attempts. Barkley was signed on October 31st and doesn’t project as much of an upgrade. The Jets D/ST remains an elite option.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jets after a limited week of practice. QB Derek Anderson has been ruled out with his concussion. HC Sean McDermott wouldn’t say on Friday whether Nathan Peterman or Matt Barkley will start this weekend if Allen can’t. Regardless, avoid the Bills passing game in fantasy lineups and start the Jets defense.

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.
