Case Keenum is the backup quarterback to Josh Allen for the Buffalo Bills. However, the 34-year-old veteran could be asked to fill in for Allen against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10.

Allen sprained his elbow in the Bills' Week 9 loss to the New York Jets.

Keenum was asked about his preparations ahead of the Vikings game. He said that he's following his usual routines and feels ready to step in for Allen.

"I'm doing the same thing I do every week, I prepare to play every week, every day, every period, every practice, every meeting, so it's the same just got a few more reps today. I feel great, feel great with the communication, the mindset of the team with Dorsey, and the communication from Sean everybody and taking it a day at a time."
