by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jeff Allen: Reaches injury settlement with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (undisclosed) agreed to an injury settlement with the Texans and was released from the team's physically unable to perform list Friday, Sarah Bishop of ESPN reports.

Allen landed on the PUP list in May due to an undisclosed injury, though it's possible he could still be nursing the concussion that caused him to miss the final two games of the 2017 campaign. The 28-year-old will immediately become an unrestricted free agent after agreeing to the injury settlement, and he should have a decent market for his services after starting 26 games for Houston over the last two seasons.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen has been placed on the physically unable to perform list with an undisclosed injury, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Allen missed time last season due to a concussion, but it doesn't appear as though that is the same issue that is preventing him from practicing currently. A starter when healthy, Allen has missed six games over the past two seasons with Houston. Look for Zach Fulton and Senio Kelemete to operate as the starting guard tandem while Allen is out.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Won't return Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Allen will finish the 2017 season with two straight inactives after suffering the concussion in the team's Week 15 loss to Jacksonville. Rookie Julie'n Davenport should receive another start at left tackle for the Texans.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Remains in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen remains the NFL's concussion protocol and has been ruled out for Monday's game against Pittsburgh, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Filling in for Allen at left tackle will be Julie'n Davenport, a rookie lineman from Bucknell. Houston's offensive line has been in flux all season due to injuries, which has slowed down the rushing attack. Fantasy owners of running back Lamar Miller need to scale back expectations given the poor state of the line.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Suffers concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen won't return to Sunday's game against the Jags with a concussion, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

In Allen's absence, Chad Slade will likely slot in at right guard.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Questionable to return to Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen suffered an ankle injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Sarah Barshop of ESPN reports.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle) participated fully in Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Allen had missed the last two games due to an ankle sprain, but appears ready to return Sunday against the Titans. His return should offer needed help to an offensive line that's allowed a league-worst 15 sacks on the campaign.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Ruled out for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Allen did not practice this week and could reportedly miss a couple of more games, so this was to be expected. The 27-year-old's status beyond this week remains unconfirmed, but considering he hasn't practiced since sustaining the injury in the season opener, his chances for Week 4 are likely not optimistic either.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Could miss a few more games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle) did not practice again Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Allen has not practiced since sustaining the injury in the Texans' season opener and now reportedly could be out a few more games as well. It has yet to be confirmed by the team, but the 27-year-old doesn't seem likely to play against the Patriots on Sunday.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle) did not participate at the Texans' practice Wednesday.

Allen has not practiced since injuring his ankle in the season opener against the Jaguars. The 27-year-old could still practice the latter half of this week, but at this point his status for Sunday's game against the Patriots is in doubt.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Could miss a few games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle) will not play in Thursday's game against the Bengals and could miss a few more contests, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Allen did not return to Sunday's game after leaving with an ankle injury, and it appears as though it could be a serious one. In Allen's absence, Greg Mancz is expected to fill in at right guard.

September 10, 2017 04:48 PM
Texans' Jeff Allen: Hurts right ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

If Allen doesn't return Sunday, he'll have to recover quickly since the Texans' next game is Thursday in Cincinnati. For now, Kyle Fuller will fill in at right guard.

Texans' Jeff Allen: Hoping to bounce back after injury-plagued 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is looking to return to form this season after a disappointing 2016 campaign, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Allen took a step back in his first season at Houston due to lingering injuries and a position change. However, after undergoing offseason ankle surgery, the 27-year-old is aiming for a bounce-back year. In addition to noting that his ankle feels better, Allen has spent the offseason changing his diet, which has helped him lose over 20 pounds. The veteran is very optimistic that he'll be able to bolster the Texans' ground game in 2017.
