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.
