Bills QB Josh Allen won’t need elbow surgery

The Buffalo Bills reported to One Bills Drive on Monday morning for lockout cleanout day, and a handful of players were made available to the media, including quarterback Josh Allen.

One of the biggest takeaways from Allen’s media availability was that he will not need offseason surgery on his right elbow, which he injured in Week 9 against the New York Jets.

“We don’t think an operation is necessary at this time. Obviously, rest and recovery is going to be really good for it,” he said.


Allen said he did change his throwing mechanics a little bit following the injury and it wasn’t until two weeks ago he felt back to normal.

“There was a period obviously right after for a few weeks where it was pretty bothersome,” Allen said. “It didn’t affect me all that much. Just kind of felt like maybe I was trying to throw it a little differently, mechanically I had to change a few things, and got away a little bit from how I’m used to throwing the ball. That’s just kind of a byproduct of that. But again, it didn’t affect me too much.”

The 26-year-old threw for 4,283 yards, 35 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions to go along with a 63.3 completion percentage in his fifth year in Buffalo.
