Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen will not start Sunday against the Colts because of a right elbow injury, and there is concern he will miss weeks, sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Allen was injured in Sunday’s 20-13 loss to the Houston Texans.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that Allen’s injury is to the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow. It is not considered major at this time, but his MRI will be sent to noted orthopedist specialist Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion, which has become standard operating procedure. One of the Bills’ orthopedic specialists, Dr. Leslie Bisson, completed his fellowship under Dr. Andrews.

No other specific information has been revealed, but the Bills do not want to rush him back, sources told Mortensen, to allow him to properly heal despite his competitive desire to play at less than full strength.

Bills coach Sean McDermott said Monday he and his offensive staff will “work through” whether Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson would replace Allen.

ESPN’s Mike Rodak and Chris Mortensen contributed to this report.

Tennessee Titans lose OLB Derrick Morgan (shoulder) for few weeks

Starting outside linebacker Derrick Morgan will be out for the next few weeks after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 6, Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel said Monday.

Morgan suffered a shoulder injury late in the first half of the Titans’ 21-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and was taken to the locker room before halftime for further evaluation.

The veteran outside linebacker was in street clothes when the team returned for the start of the second half.

Veteran outside linebacker Brian Orakpo will remain the starter on one side. The Titans will likely start rookie Harold Landry in Morgan’s place opposite Orakpo. They’ll also rotate rookie Sharif Finch and Kamalei Correa into the lineup.

Starting right guard Quinton Spain also suffered a shoulder injury against the Ravens and did not return. Vrabel said Spain is day to day, but the team is hoping to have him back this week against the Los Angeles Chargers in London.

According to Vrabel, the team is excited about their chances of getting starting inside linebacker Wesley Woodyard back on the field. Woodyard was ruled out last week’s game due to a shoulder injury. Rookie Rashaan Evans started in Woodyard’s place and chipped in with seven tackles.
