Allen will start Saturday's preseason game against Baltimore, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
With Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke held out, Kyle Allen and Steven Montez will split the QB reps. Washington will open the game with a crew of second- and third-stringers, releasing a starting lineup with RB Peyton Barber, WRs Antonio Gandy-Golden, Dax Milne and DeAndre Carter and TE John Bates. In any case. Allen should be the No. 3 quarterback if Washington keeps one.
