The Buffalo Bills know they need Josh Allen to be at his best if they want to stand a chance to win a Super Bowl this season.
With that in mind, some thought they would take things slowly and be extremely cautious with their quarterback’s health.
Allen is reportedly dealing with right shoulder soreness, and it was bad enough to make some people think he would miss Sunday’s game vs. the New England Patriots.
That’s why Bills HC Sean McDermott was quick to dismiss that narrative, letting it be known that he fully intends to participate and partake in Wednesday’s practice (via Ian Rapoport).

It doesn’t sound like the MVP candidate is at risk of missing the divisional clash, and he also told reporters that he felt quite well and had no concern about that being a long-term injury or ailment.
The Bills went through a walk-through practice on Wednesday, so it’s not like he had a lot to do on the field anyways.
Buffalo also lost RB Damien Harris to an injury, but they might not need a lot of help getting past a 1-5 Patriots team that has barely been able to put up points over the past three weeks, with Mac Jones failing to throw for a single touchdown pass.
The Bills continue to march atop the AFC East Division, but with the New York Jets’ recent surge and the Miami Dolphins’ explosive offense, they might not want to take any risks against a beatable Patriots team, and that also makes sense.NEXT: Josh Allen Sends Clear Message On His Health
