Josh Allen has proven to be a standout player in the NFL since entering the league in 2018 and has improved dramatically in recent years. His powerful arm and precise accuracy are unmatched, and he has been able to lead his team to the playoffs in three consecutive seasons.

Allen’s combination of size, speed, and athleticism make him a threat both on the ground and in the air. He is also a gifted leader and has a strong work ethic, constantly striving to improve his skills and refine his technique. He is a dual threat, able to use his arm to stretch the field and his legs to gain yards on the ground.

In 2022, Allen had yet another standout season, leading his team to the postseason again and also being named to the Pro Bowl. While things didn’t go well for the Bills in the playoffs with the team falling to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, Bills Mafia is eager to see Allen play again in the Pro Bowl… but is Allen actually playing in the game?

Is Josh Allen playing in the Pro Bowl today?

Unfortunately, Josh Allen will not be taking the Pro Bowl field today to compete in the NFL’s annual AFC vs. NFC game. Allen was voted to the Pro Bowl team, but will not be playing in the game with the AFC team instead starting alternatives Trevor Lawrence (Jacksonville), Derek Carr (Las Vegas), and Tyler Huntley (Baltimore).

Why isn’t Josh Allen playing in the Pro Bowl?

If you’re watching the Pro Bowl and wondering why Josh Allen is not playing in the game, there is an easy explanation for Allen’s absence. Allen was among a handful of players who opted out of the game due to injury.

Allen sustained an elbow injury in Week 9 which thankfully did not cause him to miss any games during the regular season or postseason. However, it’s an injury he’s still nursing and one that ultimately will keep him from playing in the Pro Bowl today as he looks to rest up now that the Bills season is over.
