Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen delivered a wild, nifty pass on Sunday afternoon in the Bills’ 30-23 victory against the Las Vegas Raiders, and appears to have narrowly escaped a potentially brutal injury in the process.
Allen left the game in the second quarter briefly holding his wrist in pain after delivering an incredible toss to Stefon Diggs as he was taken down.
Josh Allen’s incredible pass, shoulder injury
On a third down late in the second quarter, Allen scrambled through the pocket while trying to find a target to keep Buffalo’s drive alive.
Raiders cornerback Keisean Nixon caught up to Allen and started to come up with what looked like a sure sack. As Allen was falling to the field, though, he somehow pitched the ball up and out to a waiting Diggs along the sideline to complete the play.
Diggs ended up just shy of the first down, which resulted in the Bills settling for a field goal to give them a 17-6 lead.
The tremendous toss left Allen in pain.
Allen hit the field hard on his left arm, and he was seen holding his left wrist before walking off to the sideline. He went to the medical tent, but quickly returned to the sideline with what the Bills called a shoulder injury before reentering the game just before halftime.
Allen finished the first half having completed 15 of 20 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns, including a deep 26-yard toss to Gabriel Davis in the first quarter. He finished the game 24-of-34 for 288 yards and two TD passes.
