Our thoughts and prayers go out to Josh and his family. We talked yesterday before meetings last night, I called Josh and just asked him where he was on it. I expressed my sympathy to him as well as his family. He said he wanted to play, we just felt like he was going to have to compartmentalize for the better part of 24 hours in order to get through the game and that’s what he did and then he was emotional after the game. It’s not an easy thing to play through
After hearing the news of the death of Allen’s grandmother, Bills fans started donating $17 in Allen’s honor to Oishei Children’s Hospital, a charity he has frequently worked with in the past.
