Josh Allen,’Quarterback will miss four months due to a career-ending injury, but…..

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen isn’t planning on undergoing surgery to address shoulder pain that bothered him throughout the regular season.

Allen told reporters Monday, via Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News, that surgery isn’t expected “at the moment.” He did admit that the pain caused him to “tweak” his method of delivering the ball to receivers, though.

The 27-year-old was still able to appear in all 17 regular-season games for the Bills, as well as the team’s two playoff contests.

Allen originally sustained the injury in the second quarter of Buffalo’s 14-9 victory over the New York Giants in Week 6 after taking a hit, exiting to get evaluated for a head injury before heading back onto the field a couple of plays later.

He was able to finish the game, although he underwent X-rays after the contest. The results were considered “normal,” per Charean Williams of ProFootballTalk, and Allen didn’t miss any further time.

He injured his throwing shoulder once again during the Bills’ matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers less than two weeks later, but he wasn’t absent for a single snap. Allen described the discomfort that he was dealing with due to the injury when speaking to the media prior to Week 9.

“Obviously, unfortunate when it’s your throwing shoulder,” Allen said on Nov. 1, according to ESPN’s Alaina Getzenberg. “As a thrower, you don’t like feeling any sort of, I wouldn’t even call it pain, just discomfort in there. So, we’re just trying to stay on top of it and get ahead of it when we can.”

He was able to manage the injury well throughout the remainder of the year, delivering another impressive season despite struggling with turnovers from time to time. Allen completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 4,306 yards and 29 touchdowns to go along with 18 interceptions.
