Allen injured his elbow on the final series of the team's 20-17 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday. He said after the game he felt "slight pain", but that he would get through it.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport tweeted on Monday that Allen's injury is expected to keep him limited in practice this week, but that more tests would be conducted.

"We all know how competitive Josh is," said McDermott during his Monday press conference with the media. "I would never count him out," when asked if he feels the injury would keep the quarterback out of practice or even the team's next game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

"The medical piece we are still evaluating."
