Allen (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, the Falcons' official site reports.
Allen emerged from the Falcons' Week 3 tilt with a knee injury, which held him out Sunday against the Texans. Following back-to-back limited showings to start this week, though, he's on pace to return to action for this Sunday's game versus Washington. If he suits up, he'll assume free-safety duties, as he looks to augment his 17 tackles (15 solo) and one interception from the first three contests.
Falcons running back Tevin Coleman (ribs) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
During media availability Thursday, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said that the Falcons hope that Coleman will be cleared to play Sunday against Washington, which would mark his first appearance since Week 2. If he fulfills that hope, the Falcons haven't revealed his workload, but Devonta Freeman's impressive showing sans Coleman will likely contain the rookie to a complementary role.
Hankerson has prospered working opposite Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) and even tallied his first 100-yard effort this season Sunday against the Texans. A thumb injury could hinder his ability to catch, but Hankerson's situation should provide fruitful as the season progresses.
Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jones didn't reach 100 receiving yards in Week 4 for the first time this season -- four catches for 38 yards on six targets -- but the blowout nature of the game spurred the Falcons to burn clock via the run game rather than continue to air it out.
He should return to normal Sunday against a Washington defense that has conceded 13.7 yards per catch and six touchdowns to wide receivers this season.
Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Levine Toilolo will likely step in as the primary tight end in an offense that mostly ignores the position. Tamme has eight catches and 11 targets in three games, after Toilolo caught just 31 passes on 54 targets as a 16-game starter last year.
White (personal) returned to Thursday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
After tending to a personal matter Wednesday, White was back in his normal capacity Thursday. Seeking to turn around a slow start to the season -- 13 targets, while earning 80 percent of the offensive snaps -- his output could depend on opposing defenses limiting both Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) and Leonard Hankerson (thumb) going forward. In the short term, White could return to relevance Sunday against a Washington defense that has given up 13.7 YPC and six touchdowns to wideouts this season.
Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes (knee) will not practice Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Grimes sprained his MCL during Sunday's London loss to the Dolphins. The 32-year-old cornerback has started every game for Miami since signing with the team back in 2013, but that streak appears to be in jeopardy with Wednesday's latest practice designation.
More information should be available later in the week, however if Grimes is unable to go Jamar Taylor could get the start in his place.
Dolphins tight end Dion Sims has been ruled out for the Sunday clash in London, reports Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post.
Sims hasn't played since sustaining a concussion in Week 1. And considering he didn't make the flight to England, it's clear he won't play against the Jets. Jake Stoneburner (three catches for 31 yards and a touchdown in two games) will once again fill in behind Jordan Cameron.
