Josh Allen Limped Off Field During Buffalo Bills Training Camp
The Buffalo Bills are one week into training camp at St. John Fisher University.
The first week has brought the media and fans their first real look at some of the brand new wide receivers like Trent Sherfield and Deonte Harty. Both players figure to play key components in the offense in 2023.
We also have been watching the first week of practice for rookie first round tight end, Dalton Kincaid, who has been extremely impressive so far.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen has been on point most of camp so far, but yesterday had a bit of scare after he was hit by nickel cornerback Taron Johnson during practice on Monday.
Allen was okay after a brief period of being down on the field, which was a relief to Bills fans. However, Tuesday has brought another injury scare and this one looked slightly more concerning.
Allen limped off the field, according to Josh Reed of WIVB. He was tapped up by trainers after someone kicked-stepped on his foot. He looks to be in good shape but no word yet on how lingering this will be.
Despite the quarterbacks wearing red, non-contact jerseys, they can still be inadvertently hit by defenders. This is the second straight day that Allen has taken a hit, which is not something that the Bills coaching staff wants to make a routine.
The Bills have ramped up practice this week with padded practice and 11 on 11, which is what they will have in game-action. This is the time in camp where injuries are most likely to occur, so fans should be prepared for some bumps and bruises. The hope is nobody gets seriously injured and is forced to miss game action.
