Allen (knee) was downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.

Allen progressed to full practice participation Friday but was unable to travel with the team to Miami. Rob Gronkowski and Jacob Hollister are the Patriots' remaining available tight ends, though fullback James Develin could also be utilized if needed as Allen will miss his third consecutive game.
