Allen (groin) was reverted to the Broncos' injured reserve Wednesday, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.
Allen was initially waived/injured by the team on Tuesday but reverted to IR after clearing waivers. It's unlikely that the Broncos look to bring Allen back once he's off IR.
Allen (groin) was waived/injured by Denver on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Allen has missed the last two years after suffering a foot injury during his final year at Alabama and now he'll miss even more time. The 25-year-old is undoubtedly talented, as he racked up 48 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks as a two-year starter in college. If Allen clears waivers, he's expected to be placed on Denver's injured reserve.
Allen injured his groin during Saturday's preseason victory against the Rams, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.
After signing with the Broncos as an undrafted rookie in 2022, Allen spent all of last season on injured reserve due to a preexisting foot issue. With injuries impacting the team's pass rush -- Baron Browning (knee) is on the active/PUP list, and Aaron Patrick still is recovering from last October's torn ACL -- Allen was vying for a Week 1 role. Allen's prognosis likely will determine whether or not he's available for the season opener.
Allen (foot) is expected to compete for a depth spot at outside linebacker ahead of the coming season, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Allen has been held out with a foot injury since his last season of college football in 2021, but it seems like he's since moved past the issue. This foot problem was the main reason the talented linebacker went undrafted in the 2022 NFL draft. In two seasons as a starter at Alabama, the 24-year-old led the SEC in tackles for loss with 17.5, while also tallying 48 tackles and 6.5 sacks.
