Nate Allen (knee) was activated from the injured reserve-designated to return list Saturday, Vic Tafur of the San Fransico Chronicle reports.
Allen, who has been out since Week 1 after injuring his knee, will be activated prior to Sunday's game against the Vikings. While the Oakland Raiders have yet to make an official announcement, it seems likely the team will allow Allen a chance to regain his starting strong safety job from Larry Asante, who has yet to record a turnover since taking over the job.
It was thought that Allen may have suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's loss to the Raiders, but it appears his setback is not as severe as thought, and he will have a chance to return to action later this season.

"We're planning on winning now," Allen told the Oakland Tribune. "We're not rebuilding."
