Allen (groin) was absent from Wednesday's practice, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Allen has now been nursing a groin injury for about a week and a half, but the severity or an exact timetable is yet to be determined. Allen was in line to start the season at free safety for the Dolphins, but they may be on hold, pending how his recovery goes.
Allen missed Monday's practice with a groin injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Allen seemed like he was in line to be the No. 1 free safety in Miami, but this injury will likely slow confirmations on that. The severity of this injury is still undisclosed.
Allen was absent from Monday's practice due to an undisclosed injury, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Allen nursed an MCL injury for much of last season when he was with the Raiders, but since he was given a clean bill of health entering training camp, it appears a different issue could be keeping him off the field. Unless Allen remains sidelined deep into the preseason, he looks like a good bet to open the regular season as a starting safety along with Reshad Jones.
Allen spent the past two seasons in Oakland but was merely a reserve option behind first-round rookie Karl Joseph in 2016. He also dealt with a bad MCL injury throughout the year and didn't participate in the Raiders' lone playoff game due to a concussion. However, with The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reporting Allen has returned to full strength, look for the former second-rounder to compete for a starting gig now that he's with the Dolphins.
Allen suffered a concussion in the regular-season finale against Denver and hasn't cleared protocol.
