Kyle Allen will compete with Taylor Heinicke to be the No. 2 quarterback in Washington this season behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. Most likely, Allen will be No. 3 on the depth chart, and he's not worth drafting in any leagues. In 2020, Allen appeared in four games, and he scored 20 Fantasy points in Week 7 against Dallas.
Allen (ankle) is still not 100 percent in his recovery from a broken ankle suffered last October, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. Allen said that he has been happy with how his rehab has gone to this point, but there are still other hurdles for him to overcome. The goal is for him to be able to be a full-go by the time training camp starts up. Allen played solidly at times last season, but will likely be third on the depth chart heading into the 2021 campaign behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Taylor Heinicke.
Allen (ankle) signed his exclusive rights free agent tender with Washington on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The club extended the tender to Allen on Mar. 10, and the signal-caller's 2021 commitment to Washington becomes official with Thursday's transaction. Newly-signed free agent addition Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to head up Washington's quarterback room this fall, while Allen ranks third in the pecking order directly behind Taylor Heinicke (shoulder). As the team's starter Weeks 5 through 9 of last season, Allen posted a 1-3 record while throwing four touchdowns and committing a pair of giveaways.
Washington extended Allen (ankle) an exclusive rights free agent tender Wednesday, NFL.com reports. Allen started four games for the Football Team in 2020 before suffering a season-ending dislocated ankle. He's expected to make a full recovery from the injury by April, and with Alex Smith having been released, Allen and Taylor Heinicke (shoulder) enter Washington's offseason program as the top quarterbacks on the depth chart. Of course, the team could also add more competition in free agency or through April's draft.
Allen (ankle) should be healthy by April, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Allen dislocated and fractured his ankle in Week 9, requiring season-ending surgery. He made four starts (but played only two full games) prior to the injury, completing 69.0 percent of his passes for 7.0 YPA, with four TDs, one interception and one lost fumble. Allen isn't scheduled for free agency until 2022, but his future in Washington appears uncertain, as the team recently signed backup Taylor Heinicke (shoulder) to a two-year extension and now figures to pursue upgrades for the starting spot. It isn't clear how Allen and Alex Smith (calf) fit into Washington's picture for 2021, but both should at least be healthy if they're still around come training camp.
Allen will undergo surgery to repair his dislocated/fractured left ankle and won't return this season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Allen's injury isn't as bad as it was initially feared, but he'll need surgery to repair the dislocation, which is expected to require a four-month recovery. Alex Smith will start under center Week 10 against the Lions, while 2019 first-rounder Dwayne Haskins serves as the backup for the time being. Allen's final stat line for the season reads 610 passing yards, four touchdowns and an interception, plus 26 yards and a touchdown on the ground. The 24-year-old quarterback is expected to make a full recovery for the 2021 season, and he'll be an exclusive-rights free agent in March.
