Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen delivered a wild, nifty pass on Sunday afternoon in their matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders, and appears to have narrowly escaped a potentially brutal injury in the process.

Allen, after delivering an incredible toss as he was taken down to Stefon Diggs in the second quarter, left the game briefly holding his wrist in pain.

Josh Allen’s incredible pass, wrist injury

Allen, on a third down late in the second quarter, scrambled through the pocket while trying to find a target to keep their drive alive.

Raiders cornerback Keisean Nixon caught up to Allen, however, 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 sidelines to complete the play.

Diggs still 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.

Yet 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 sidelines. He went to the medical tent, but quickly returned to the sidelines with what the Bills called a shoulder injury before reentering the game just before halftime.

Allen finished the first half having thrown 15-of-20 for 152 yards and two touchdowns, including a deep 26-yard toss to Gabriel Davis in the first quarter.
