  • Brian Allen: Back from COVID-19 list

    Allen was removed from the practice squad COVID-19 list Monday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Allen had been on the list for five days, and he has cleared the necessary protocols to return to team activities. Cornerbacks Mackensie Alexander and LeShaun Sims are both in concussion protocol, while Darius Phillips (groin) is on IR for two more games, so Allen's services could be useful this week against Washington.

  • 49ers' Brian Allen: To get first career start Week 5

    Allen is slated to start against the Dolphins on Sunday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old hasn't appeared in an NFL game since suiting up for the Steelers in 2018, but San Francisco finds itself in dire need of secondary help heading into a matchup against Miami's 20th-ranked pass offense. The 49ers are dealing with a cluster of injuries to the back end of the defense, with K'Waun Williams (knee-ACL), Richard Sherman (calf), Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) and Dontae Johnson (groin) all unavailable for Week 5. Allen was on San Francisco's practice squad as of Saturday morning, but with a seemingly strong week of practice, he has been activated and moved ahead of Ken Webster on the CB depth chart.

    Allen signed with the Bills on Friday.

    Allen spent most of the 2019 season on the Seahawks' practice squad, but he does have some game experience with 16 contests between 2017 and 2018. He'll simply add depth in the Bills' secondary, and his best chance to make the roster is via special teams.
