Against the Broncos, he displayed his second-lowest total of the season, managing to record only 177 yards and just one touchdown.

This season, Allen has displayed solid performance with 246 completions and 19 touchdowns. However, he hasn’t been able to fully lead his team to its true potential. While there’s no official report on when Allen will regain full fitness, this uncertainty adds to the Bills’ struggles. Nevertheless, there’s no indication that he will miss any games despite the injury.
