  • Cardinals' Zach Allen: Undergoes ankle surgery

    Allen recently had ankle surgery, per his Twitter account Friday. Allen noted that he toughed out "a torn-up ankle" all season, but his two absences during the 2021 campaign were attributed to a stay on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The third-year pro had a career season, with 48 tackles, four sacks, four pass defenses, three fumble recoveries (including one for a touchdown) and one interception in 15 games. As he enters the final year of his rookie deal, Allen will look to set himself up for a nice payday with a productive 2022.

  • Cardinals' Zach Allen: Designated to return

    Allen (ankle) was designated to return from injured reserve Tuesday, opening the 21-day window for him to be activated, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Allen has missed the requisite amount of time on injured reserve and is eligible to return as soon as Sunday's game against the Patriots. The Cardinals could sorely use Allen back in the lineup, as defensive ends Jordan Phillips (hamstring) and Leki Fotu (ankle) have both gone to IR in the past two weeks. Allen should be an immediate starter once he returns to action.

  • Cardinals' Zach Allen: Shifts to IR

    The Cardinals placed Allen (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. The Cardinals believe Allen has a chance to return after a minimum three-week stint on IR, which would mean he could play Week 11 against the Seahawks -- a Thursday night contest. The 2019 third-round pick has started two games this year and maintains a consistent role on the team's defense, but until he returns to action, Leki Fotu, Jordan Phillips (hamstring) and Angelo Blackson should handle expanded roles.

  • Cardinals' Zach Allen: Done for day

    Allen won't return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks due to a shoulder injury, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports. It's unclear how the rookie picked up the injury, but, as evidenced by this news, it will cost him the rest of Week 4. With Allen sidelined, look for Clinton McDonald and Johnathan Bullard to see increased reps for the remainder of the game.
