Josh Allen day-to-day with foot sprain; has chance to play against Carolina

Bills head coach Sean McDermott also says wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is week-to-week with a knee injury

Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Josh Allen is day-to-day with a foot sprain, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

NFL Network insider Ian Rappaport reported Monday morning that Allen suffered a minor case of “turf toe".  When asked if that was accurate on his Monday Zoom call with the Buffalo media, McDermott said a “foot sprain” was the term given to him by his medical staff.

McDermott added they will see how Allen’s foot responds to treatment throughout the week before making any determinations on his playing status this upcoming Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

Allen suffered the injury on a long run in the fourth quarter of the team’s 33-27 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. He limped off the field and had his foot re-taped by trainers before re-entering the game and ultimately finishing the contest.

There were several times he still took off and ran despite the injury, finishing the game with 308 yards passing and 109 rushing, becoming just the fourth player in NFL history to eclipse 300 yards passing and 100 yards rushing in a single contest.
