Top Dakota Allen News

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Inks tender

    Allen signed his exclusive rights free agent tender with the Jaguars on Thursday, per the NFL's official transaction report.

    Allen logged a career-high 13 tackles with Jacksonville last season, and he'll get a chance to continue his development with the team heading into the 2021 campaign. Of course, it's difficult to envision him having a path to IDP fantasy value.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Evaluated for concussion

    Allen will be evaluated for concussion after suffering a head injury during Sunday's game, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    While the extent of the injury is unclear, Allen will need to be evaluated for a concussion after he was injured during Sunday's game against the Colts. Joe Giles-Harris likely will resume linebacker duties if Allen is unable to rejoin the Jaguars.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Ready to go

    Allen (ankle) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game versus the Titans, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

    Allen will return to the lineup after missing just one game. He logs most of his playing time on special teams, but Allen could handle more work on defense if Kamalei Correa (hamstring) can't play this week.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Remains out Sunday

    Allen (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Minnesota, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

    The 25-year-old aggravated the ankle injury last week against the Browns and will be sidelined for at least one game. The Jaguars will have to look elsewhere to fill Allen's role on special teams.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Out with ankle injury

    Allen won't return to Sunday's game against the Browns due to an ankle injury.

    Allen didn't record a tackle before picking up the injury and being ruled out during the second half. Kamalei Correa and Joe Giles-Harris are Jacksonville's remaining reserve options at linebacker.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Ready to play Sunday

    Allen (ankle) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Teresa Varley of Pittsburgh's official site reports.

    Allen hasn't suited up since Week 7 due to his lingering ankle injury, but he's now on track to return against Pittsburgh. The second-year pro usually plays most of his snaps on special teams.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Missing another game

    Allen (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game in Green Bay, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

    Allen's ankle issue will cause him to miss a second straight contest. With Kamalei Correa (hip) also questionable to face the Packers, both Quincy Williams and Myles Jack could be called upon to handle even more than their usual starting allotments of defensive snaps.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Out Week 9

    Allen (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

    The 25-year-old suffered the ankle injury Week 7 against the Chargers, and he needs additional time to recover coming out of the bye. Quincy Williams should see the bulk of the snaps at outside linebacker with Allen sidelined.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Allen (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Allen hurt his ankle in Week 7 against the Chargers, and the bye week didn't provide enough time for the linebacker to heal. He'll likely need to get in at least a limited practice over the next two days to have a realistic chance of suiting up Sunday against the Texans.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Exits Sunday's contest

    Allen was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Chargers with an ankle injury, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

    Allen started Sunday's game at strong-side linebacker but left early in the first quarter. He was initially considered probable to return but downgraded to questionable after going to the locker room. Myles Jack (ankle) is inactive Sunday as well, so Kamalei Correa and Quincy Williams should be every-down linebackers for the time being.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Ready to play

    Allen (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

    This news is a bit surprising, as the Texas Tech product will suit up despite not suing up for any practice time this week. In his past two games in spot-start duty, Allen has racked up 13 tackles (seven solo) while playing in 100 percent of his team's defensive snaps last game. Now healthy, he'll assume his usual starting role as the team's starting strongside linebacker.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Questionable versus Detroit

    Allen (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

    The 24-year-old sat out practice the first two days of the week with the foot issue, but he showed enough Friday to earn the questionable tag. Allen had seven tackles and played every defensive snap as a fill-in starter Week 5, but even if healthy he should return to a reserve role against the Lions with Myles Jack (ankle) clear of the injury report.

  • Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Dealing with injury

    Allen (foot) was a non participant during Wednesday's practice.

    Allen filled in as a starter last week for the injured Myles Jack (ankle), racking up seven tackles (five solo) in the loss to Houston. Now it appears Allen is dealing with the foot issue, leaving the linebacking corps thin at the moment. If both Allen and Jack are forced to miss Week 6, Cassius Marsh and Kamalei Correa would be in line for starting roles at linebacker.
