During the game against the Jets, the Bills quarterback Josh Allen suffered an elbow injury. It has been bothering him for the past few weeks. Many saw him wearing a brace on his right elbow during practice sessions. Recently, he was seen practicing for the first time without wearing a brace, which could be pretty great news for the Bills Mafia.

Notably, Allen has been playing with an injured elbow in the last two matches against the Vikings and the Browns, respectively. In the last two games, his performance was not up to the mark, possibly because of the injury. Before the Lions’ game on Thursday, his latest practice session will give the Bills a massive boost.
