The Buffalo Bills have three players in the NFL’s concussion protocol this week, but one of them looks to be on track to play this weekend. Quarterback Josh Allen did individual drills on Wednesday, and looks to be on track to play Sunday if he doesn’t suffer any setbacks.
Allen did individual work at practice Wednesday, indicating he’s in stage 4 of the 5-stage protocol. If he clears his baselines after practice today, he could move to stage 5 later this week, which is participating in a full-team practice with live contact. As a QB, it’s hard to think he’ll see much contact in practice.
The same can’t be said for safety Dean Marlowe, who entered concussion protocol on Sunday, and fullback Patrick DiMarco, who enter the protocol sometime after Monday’s press conference. Marlowe was a limited participant on Wednesday while DiMarco didn’t practice. That likely means Buffalo will be without a fullback on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Cornerback Taron Johnson and RB Devin Singletary are still limited with hamstring injuries. The other area of concern is for TE Tyler Kroft, who was on his way back to the lineup before injuring his ankle a coupe weeks ago. He didn’t even practice this week.
Corey Thompson is out for several weeks following ankle surgery. He is a core special teamer when healthy.
Good news for CB Tre’Davious White and WR Robert Foster, who both returned to full practices after missing some time last week during practice.
