NFL injury updates, latest league news from Wednesday, Dec. 15

Hobbled Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen will have limited participation in a Wednesday walkthrough, according to coach Sean McDermott.

The star quarterback is dealing with a left foot sprain as well as a mild case of turf toe. He played through the ailments in a 33-27 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, delivering an impressive second-half performance to lead a failed comeback effort. He was in a walking boot following the game, and McDermott said Monday that his status for practice would be day to day. Allen has compiled an impressive season thus far with 4,055 total yards (3,524 passing, 531 rushing), but the team has faltered with four losses in its last six games after a 4-1 start.

The Bills face the visiting Carolina Panthers on Sunday, and Allen's availability is crucial as the club tries to maintain playoff position with a 7-6 record.

"I'd love to play," Allen said, adding that he feels notably better. "I guess we'll have to reevaluate things in a couple days. As of right now, I feel pretty good."

Allen, defensive tackle Star Lotulelei (foot) and defensive end Jerry Hughes (foot) were officially listed as limited while receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee) did not practice.
