Josh Allen is being shut down.
The Bills quarterback is expected to miss at least two to three games with an elbow sprain he suffered in a Week 6 loss to the Texans, according to a report from the NFL Network. Allen will be considered “week-to-week” from that point forward. The injury will not require surgery.
#Bills QB Josh Allen received a second opinion on his sprained elbow from Dr. James Andrews, and while he won’t need surgery, the expectation as of now is Allen will miss at least two or three games, then be week-to-week from there, source said.

Allen remained in Sunday’s game for one play before heading to the sideline and being replaced by backup Nathan Peterman, who threw a pair of fourth-quarter interceptions, including one that was returned for Houston’s game-winning touchdown.
Allen, 22, has thrown for 832 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 155 yards and three scores in his rookie season.
The Colts are slated to host the Bills at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
