The Buffalo Bills' day went from bad to worse in Week 9 when quarterback Josh Allen appeared to injure his elbow late against the New York Jets. Allen said after the game he didn't think it would be anything to worry about, but that didn't quiet the concerns.

Now it appears the injury will impact his preparation for next Sunday's game.

Allen is expected to be limited in practice in this week due to the elbow issue, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It doesn't sound like there's a strong chance of him missing the contest, but this situation is certainly something to monitor closely in the coming days.

The MVP candidate had far from an ideal day against the Jets, posting a season-low 205 passing yards and zero touchdowns through the air. He also tossed two interceptions, one of which led to an important touchdown during New York's 20-17 comeback victory.

Hopefully Allen's additional testing comes back normal and he's not forced to miss any time. The Bills will certainly need him as they prepare to take on the 7-1 Minnesota Vikings in Week 10.

Buffalo enters that contest as a 7-point favorite, according to Fanduel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
