Josh Allen’s status still up in the air on Friday ahead of Vikings matchup

The Buffalo Bills will take their quarterback question right down to the wire.

Ahead of facing the Minnesota Vikings (7-1) in Week 10, Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott jumped on his weekly segment with the Bills’ radio partner, WGR-550. There, McDermott said Allen’s status is still up in the air regarding his ability to play for the Bills (6-2) on Sunday.

So far this week, Allen has not practiced. However, the coach said Allen will see if he can do so on Friday. If all goes well during warmups and in the early portions of the workout, Allen might practice.

The coach has said all week the team is taking things “day-by-day.” Now he admits it’s an “hour-by-hour” situation.

“We’re going to see how the lead into practice goes,” McDermott said.

Late during Buffalo’s 20-17 loss to the New York Jets last week, Allen’s elbow was caught by a defender. It caused a sprain and possible tear.

The QB originally downplayed the issue.

Without Allen, the Bills would turn things over to backup Case Keenum.

Keenum previously played for the Vikings.

Bills Wire will continue to bring all updates to Allen status up until kickoff. Check back.
