Allen recorded 54 total tackles (38 solo) in 15 games this season.
Coming off a 2016 campaign where he racked up 90 total tackles, it's safe to say that his defensive output was a disappointment this year. He'll be a restricted free agent this offseason, so while it seems likely he'll be in a Falcons jersey next season, his 2017 performance did little to solidify that possibility.
Allen recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
Allen has now posted 16 total tackles over the last two weeks, as he looks to be returning to form after struggling production-wise for several weeks in November.
Allen has cleared concussion protocol and logged a full practice Monday, D.Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The team's bye week came at the right time for Allen, who suffered a concussion in Week 4's loss to the Bills. He now appears fully recovered from the injury and should be set to start at free safety Sunday against the Dolphins barring any setbacks.
Allen suffered a concussion in Week 3's win over the Lions, and has been unable to clear protocol. Look for Sharrod Neasman to fill in at free safety in the 25-year-old's absence, while Damontae Kazee should see an increased workload providing depth in the defensive backfield.
Allen is in the league's concussion protocol after suffering a head injury during the latter portion of Sunday's win over the Lions, Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Allen notched three tackles (two solo) during Sunday's tilt before heading to the sideline with concussion symptoms. If he's unable to clear the league's concussion protocol by Week 4's matchup against the Bills, Sharrod Neasman and Kemal Ishamel could be in line for additional snaps at safety.
