Allen cleared from Concussion Protocol, expected to play in Tennessee

Shannon Shepherd

The biggest question surrounding week five for the Buffalo Bills was whether or not their starting quarterback Josh Allen would play.

He will.

After taking a hit to the head in Buffalo's 16-10 loss to New England, Allen was immediately placed in the NFL's concussion protocol .

Allen remained in the protocol all week - only partaking in individual drills at practice, before the team announced Saturday afternoon that he was cleared to play.

Through four weeks this season, Allen has thrown for 903 yards and three touchdowns. 

He is coming off his worst outing - throwing three interceptions against New England. 

Allen wasn't the only Bills player in the Concussion Protocol - safety Dean Marlowe and fullback Pat DiMarco were also working their way back to the field. They have also been cleared and are expected to play vs. Tennessee. 

The Bills (3-1) visit the Titans (2-2) at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
