Josh Allen in Line to Play vs Vikings
In some rather surprising news Friday afternoon, it looks like Buffalo Bills quarterback, Josh Allen, will start vs the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Ian Rapoport (NFL Network) is reporting that Allen “will be on the field” and he’s “in line to play” on Sunday.
That doesn’t guarantee a start but it sure appears that’s where this mystery is heading.
#Bills QB Josh Allen was limited in practice on Friday, but that appeared to be enough. He's set to be on the field. https://t.co/fyeG2JDEzc— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 12, 2022
#Bills QB Josh Allen is able to grip a football and he did some throwing on Friday. That gave enough confidence to proceed without elevating Matt Barkley from the practice squad and put Allen in line to play against the #Vikings despite an elbow sprain.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 12, 2022
Keep an eye on the betting spread of this game, as we get closer to game time. After news of Josh Allen’s injury hit the internet earlier this week, the Bills went from 7.5 point favorites, down to the 3 point favorites they are today.
If Allen really is going to start on Sunday then you have to think that spread starts to get larger pretty quickly. If more news comes out, this blog will be updated.
