It's unlikely because the UCL is not really used much in throwing a football, he would have to be hit the same way again in the same area 

 

Different sports, different throwing motions. Partial also covers a very wide range of damage, from very little to significant, it's not a one size fits all type diagnosis.

 

Want to believe this, but... on the pass before the 70-yard bomb, it sure seemed like whatever he was dealing with had clearly impacted the throw.

Y’all go decipher the latest Diggs tweet. Sorry, I don’t post that stuff, only smart a** remarks. To elaborate, I can’t get the file, I know it’s a click bait source but check out heavyonbills.com article.

How about the last pass you saw him throw?  One of the best throws of the year by any qb.

this is true. The injury is what’s hanging in the balance right now. 

It probably goes a little deeper than that, although it IS fair to say that the 2 losses came in the 2 games most egregiously impacted by injuries.

 

Maybe Allen's issues the last 3 quarters are in fact partially injury-related? He's displayed obvious issues with throws to his right, especially when moving to his right...such throws often involve poor/limited mechanics, relying primarily on the elbow-to-wrist action. Didn't Allen hit his hand on a defender a couple games ago, and now he's experienced a UCL/elbow injury? Both times we saw him react emphatically on the field. So maybe he's dinged enough that a combination of sped-up/incomplete mechanics AND diminished lower right arm strength/stability has resulted in skipped and off-target throws to the right half of the field?

Its a shame it went threw the arms of <50% catch guy.  That pass would have been highlighted for years.

 

Agree that Davis has been disappointing the last two games, most notably with his inability to bring in contested passes. But we also saw stretches last year, like right now, where he seems to just not be on the same page as his quarterback. We've seen what happens when Allen has, and does not have, that 2nd outside weapon.

Yep Davis is not who we thought he was. Beane def has to do something at WR, and McDermott has to stop messing around with McKenzie and make Shakir full time slot receiver.

I really hope they don't hold Allen out. If he can play, he needs to play. Keenum isn't winning us any games 

I think Allen has enough clout to just say he's playing and that's that.

Well F**K

I am relieved.  Elbows are tricky injuries.  This might be best case scerio.  Slightly torn UCL is manageable and treatable.  If Josh needs to rest a game or two, thats alright.  It's long season.  That's our QB.  We need him healthy for the playoffs

I'm not saying Keenum is going to win the game for us.  I am saying the Bills have mucho talent, and they can win games without Josh.  Trent Dilfer won a Superbowl

What? Care to elaborate, it's being deemed short term...granted haven't heard from Coach or Josh again.

 

I think a torn UCL even a relatively minor tear is likely to affect Josh's play moving forward. And I don't think we can win a Superbowl with a compromised Josh Allen.

 

Maybe I am being too defeatist. But to my mind our Superbowl hopes are basically done. Not saying we won't win another game or anything but he probably needs surgery and rest to be at his best and that is not happening until the offseason

Probably needs surgery? From a sprain? Don’t think that can be a logical suggestion right now.

This.  He likely won't practice this week but still play and thay will be trend for rest of year.  Limited all week play Sunday

These can be micro tears too.  Basically any inconsistencies in the UCL. Could be something that actually heals while he plays. He will need to keep swelling down but this won't impact much.
