Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills kept the good times rolling on Saturday night as they defeated their AFC East rivals, the Miami Dolphins, in snowy Orchard Park. The Bills won the game 32-29 as Tyler Bass kicked a game-winning 29-yard field goal as time expired, giving Buffalo their fifth win in a row.

The win helped them keep a hold of the No. 1 seed in the AFC with the Kansas City Chiefs, who are also 11-3 thus far. But, the Bills own the tiebreaker courtesy of their 24-20 victory in Arrowhead Stadium in Week 6.

While Buffalo is playing well, they do have some injury concerns to monitor, the most important one being that of star quarterback Josh Allen. Allen injured his elbow near the end of the team’s loss to the New York Jets in Week 9.

While Allen has not missed any time because of the injury, he did look a little shaky at times in the weeks following. He certainly looked okay while carving up the Dolphins’ secondary this past weekend, attempting 40 passes and completing 25 of them for 62.5 percent, throwing for 304 yards and four touchdowns.

While no setbacks or anything of that nature has been announced, the practice week is starting a bit concerning for Allen. He was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday because of his elbow, which is the first time that he has been on the injury report because of the ailment since the Bills headed into their matchup with the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

Buffalo could just be looking to limit his reps during the practice week to ensure that he is ready to go on Sunday when they go on the road to face the Chicago Bears. In addition to Allen, linebacker Matt Milano, defensive tackle Jordan Phillips and guard Ryan Bates were also limited participants.

Center Mitch Morse, defensive end Boogie Basham, safety Jordan Poyer and guard Roger Saffold did not participate in practice on Tuesday. Cornerback Cam Lewis and defensive end A.J. Epenesa were both full participants.
