Josh Allen's elbow injury was a hot topic shortly after he sustained it in Week 9, but over time, it faded into the background.

Allen said Monday that the discomfort associated with the ailment followed a similar progression, explaining he felt he was possibly "trying to throw it a little differently mechanically" until a couple of weeks ago. Most importantly, it appears he won't need offseason surgery to address the issue, Nick Shook of reports.

"We don't think an operation is necessary at this time. Obviously rest and recovery is going to be really good for it," Allen said, via the team's official site.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott echoed Allen on Monday, telling reporters the quarterback's elbow needed more attention initially but eventually it wasn't a concern. What was concerning to McDermott upon reviewing Sunday's Divisional Round loss to Cincinnati was the performance of Buffalo's players up front on both sides of the ball.

"We've got to look at that," McDermott said of the play of his team's offensive and defensive lines.
