Allen injured his ankle in practice Saturday, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear yet how severe the injury is and whether it has any relation to the broken ankle Allen suffered last October and had surgically repaired. Allen's currently third on Washington's depth chart behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke, and he can ill afford to miss much time if he wants to surpass at least one of those alternatives. He'll try to heal up in time to participate in Washington's Aug. 12 preseason opener.
