The Dolphins and Bills are set to face off for the second time this season Saturday night, when several outlets are projecting heavy snow to fall on Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York. It would mark Tua Tagovailoa's first time playing in the snow in his NFL career, but he said apart from spending time in the cold tub last week while the team practiced in Los Angeles, he hasn't put much thought into Saturday's playing conditions.
While a game in heavy snow will be fun to watch, those with fantasy stock in the game and owning Bills and Dolphins players may want to think about their lineups. It's always tough to remove players like Tua and Allen from your lineups in the playoffs, but ugly weather can sometimes mean a hit to the passing game, even though slippery conditions does favor the offense. It will be something to keep an eye on heading into the weekend. The game is scheduled to be played Saturday night.
As we reported Tuesday, Allen didn't make the injury worse playing in Week 10 and it's safe to assume he'll be back on the field for Week 11. HC Sean McDermott said the team will continue the regimen from last week and will evaluate him each day and determine his practice load.
Head coach Sean McDermott said on Monday that there was no further issue with Josh Allen's elbow.
McDermott said Allen’s elbow is in a “good spot” coming out of the game and that the team will determine his practice schedule for the week. Offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey added that the game plan on Sunday was not limited by Allen’s injury, the story said. It also added there weren't many throws that were off the table in terms of play calling. Allen should be good for Week 11's game. The Bills host the Browns.
Allen did not practice this week with an elbow sprain but did some throwing on Friday and is able to grip the football. The Bills seem to feel comfortable enough with how Allen looks and them not elevating Barkley shows the Bills look like they’ll roll with Allen, considering the only other quarterback on their active roster is Case Keenum.
