Bills quarterback Josh Allen said he was “pretty sore” after suffering an injury to his left foot Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Allen played the full game in the Bills’ 33-27 overtime loss, but he wasn’t at full strength for a good chunk of the fourth quarter and OT. He was hurt while being tackled at the end of a 23-yard run to the Tampa Bay 15 five minutes into the fourth quarter. He limped back to the huddle and then threw a touchdown pass on the next play to cut Buffalo’s deficit to 27-17.
Trainers on the sideline retaped his foot and he continued on in the game, but he came to his postgame media availability wearing a walking boot.
He said there was no chance of him leaving the game. “There was no way I was going out,” he said sternly. He also said he was expecting to undergo tests Monday.
Allen finished the game with 36-for-54 passing, 308 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He was also Buffalo’s leading rusher with 12 carries for 109 yards and a TD.
Backup QB Mitchell Trubisky began to warm up on the sideline after Allen was hurt. He would be the first in line to take over if Allen has to miss the Bills’ Week 15 game against the Panthers at home. The former Bears starter has taken just 28 snaps this season. He is 5 for 7 for 28 yards and an interception.
