However, it is worth noting that two plays after Allen was allegedly injured, he made an incomplete pass to Gabe Davis, who flew 69.3 yards in the air, which is the longest pass attempt in the past six seasons. Does this mean Allen is 100% healthy? No. However, this nugget is at least reassuring that he won’t go off the rails by missing the ball in week 10.

Allen has the Bills sitting 6-2 on the season and taking the driver’s seat not only for first place in the AFC East, but also for first place in the conference. However, with the Chiefs and Ravens also holding six wins at the start of Week 10, every match is important, especially when the opposition is a 7-1 Vikings team.

Buffalo and Minnesota will take on Allen, likely at center, starting at 1:00 pm ET at Highmark Stadium.
