    Allen (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, The Team 980 reports.

    Impact

    Allen suffered the left MCL sprain in the season opener and was a non-participant at practice Wednesday and Thursday, so it's not a major surprise he won't be playing Sunday. Treyvon Hester figures to see an increased role in his absence, especially if Caleb Brantley (ankle) is also ruled out.

    News

    Allen (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

    Impact

    Allen also wasn't present on the team's rehab field, so they're clearly taking precautions with the third-year defensive end. The Redskins' pass rush clearly will take a hit in Sunday's game versus the Cowboys if he can't play, especially since Caleb Brantley (ankle) is also hurting. Treyvon Hester likely will start if Allen or Brantley can't go.

    News

    Allen (knee) is not expected to be out long-term after suffering an MCL sprain in the Redskins' season opening loss to the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

    Impact

    Allen does not have a concrete time frame for a return at this point, so consider him week-to-week. He has yet to be officially ruled out for Week 2, but it seems likely he will be at this point. Caleb Brantley (ankle), Treyvon Hester and even T.Y. McGill should all be in line for bigger workloads assuming Allen sits out.

    News

    Allen is considered week-to-week with an MCL sprain and isn't expected to play in Washington's Week 2 game versus the Cowboys, Grant Paulsen of The Athletic reports.

    Impact

    Allen played just seven snaps in the season-opening loss to Philadelphia before leaving with the injury. The Redskins' pessimism about Allen's availability seven days in advance of their next game suggests the defensive end could be in line to miss multiple contests. With Caleb Brantley (ankle) also hurting, reserve Tim Settle could move into the starting lineup for Sunday afternoon's matchup with Dallas.

    News

    Allen suffered a sprained left knee during Sunday's game against Philadelphia and is considered week-to-week, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    Impact

    This isn't great news for the Alabama product who was coming off a breakout season in 2018. Expect the team to update his status as necessary, but at this point, Allen should be considered no better than questionable for Week 2 against Dallas. As long as Allen is sidelined, Caleb Brantley should see an increase in snaps at defensive end.
