Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Getting fifth-year option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington is picking up the fifth-year option on Allen's rookie contract, Kevin Sheehan of The Team 980 reports.

After missing 11 games his rookie season, the 2017 first-round pick is coming off back-to-back campaign with at least six sacks and more than 60 tackles. Allen spent the past three years playing defensive end in a 3-4 scheme, but he'll likely move to defensive tackle as coach Ron Rivera and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio transition the team to a 4-3 base alignment. With Allen, Daron Payne and Matthew Ioannidis providing interior push while Chase Young, Montez Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan come off the edge, Washington has potential to sport a dominant pass rush in 2020. Allen's fifth-year option for 2021 will be guaranteed for injury only.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Overcomes knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen compiled 68 tackles (46 solo), six sacks and a fumble recovery in 15 games during the 2019 season.

Allen suffered a knee sprain Week 1 and missed the next game, but he played in 14 consecutive contests to close out the season, averaging 51.1 defensive snaps per week. Coming off back-to-back seasons with 61 or more tackles and six or more sacks while playing in a 3-4 scheme, the 2017 first-round pick is an excellent bet to receive the fifth-year option on his rookie contract. Allen will head into 2020 with a new head coach (Ron Rivera) and a new defensive coordinator (Jack Del Rio).

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Ready for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (toe) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Giants.

Allen began the week as a limited practice participant, but he practiced fully Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 24-year-old should work in his typical starting role at defensive end this weekend.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Dealing with toe injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen has a toe injury and was a limited participant at practice Wednesday.

Allen saw his typical workload in Sunday's loss to the Eagles and recorded a season-high nine tackles, but he apparently didn't finish the contest unscathed. However, the fact the 24-year-old is practicing in some capacity to begin the week puts him on track to play this weekend.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Forces fumble in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen logged five tackles (three solo), half a sack and a forced fumble in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Lions.

Allen played a season-high 65 snaps a week after seeing just 10 on special teams. He's made at least three tackles in every game since Week 3 and is up to 4.5 sacks on the year.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Good to go Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle/knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Lions.

Allen began the week not practicing but put in a full session Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 24-year-old has 38 tackles (24 solo) and four sacks through nine games and should see a heavy workload again Sunday.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle/knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday.

Allen was a surprise DNP on Wednesday's injury report but was already back out there Thursday. He is trending the right direction for Sunday's tilt with the Lions.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Battling two injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle/knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

Allen logged a season-high 59 defensive snaps during this past Sunday's loss to the Jets, so it's unclear how he sustained these issues. The 2017 first-round pick's status for this Sunday's matchup against the Lions will be in doubt unless he can get onto the practice field in some capacity.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Tallies fourth sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen had seven tackles (three solo) and a sack in Thursday's loss to Minnesota.

Allen led the Redskins' defensive ends with 57 defensive snaps and brought down Kirk Cousins on third down in the second quarter to hold the Vikings to a field goal. The 24-year-old had a slow start with zero sacks through the first four weeks of the season -- including one absence due to a knee injury -- but he now has four sacks and 22 total tackles over the last four games.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Hunting opposing QBs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen finished Sunday's 17-16 win over the Dolphins with three tackles, including a pair of sacks.

It was a productive afternoon for Allen who, despite a season-low 37 snaps, twice brought down the opposing quarterback and now has three sacks in five games. He remains a risky option in IDP formats because of a limited role, but Allen could soon see more opportunities if he keeps up this level of play. The 24-year-old defensive end is certainly a player to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Sack on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen recorded five tackles (four solo) and a sack across 58 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Allen notched his first sack of the season, taking down Tom Brady late in the first quarter. Allen missed the majority of the first two weeks of the season with a MCL sprain, so there's a good chance he sees his reps increase as he continues to return to full strength.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Active versus Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) is officially active for Monday's tilt against the Bears, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Allen was initially listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Bears, but he appears to have succeeded in shaking his knee injury. The 2017 first-round pick looks set for his usual starting role along Washington's defensive line.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Redskins have officially listed Allen (knee) as questionable for Monday's game against the Bears.

Allen saw his workload increase each day at practice week, and even went as far as to deem himself ready to play. Although the team still opted to label him questionable, he appears on track to make his season debut. Allen recorded eight sacks in 2018, so his presence would certainly be beneficial to a Washington defense that has gotten to the quarterback just twice through two games.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Deems himself ready
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) was a limited participant in Friday's practice but said he'll play Monday versus the Bears, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Allen dropped eight pounds to help his injured knee, and he said he feels great. Coach Jay Gruden isn't as certain about Allen's status, saying Allen "looked good" but he still needs a solid practice Saturday to be confirmed as ready. The Redskins' defense has only made two sacks this season, so having Allen (eight sacks in 2018) back could rejuvenate the unit.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) hasn't returned to practice and head coach Jay Gruden said Thursday that the team is "just making sure he's going to be okay before he starts individual drills and practice," Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports.

Allen originally sustained the sprained knee in Washington's season opener and missed last Sunday's matchup with Dallas because of it. Gruden expressed hope that the 2017 first-round pick would be able to fully practice this week, but it has yet to come to fruition. With the Redskins not facing the Bears until Monday, Allen will have another day to rest and hopefully be prepared for the contest.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Individual drills on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) is expected to participate in individual drills this week, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Allen is managing an MCL sprain suffered during Washington's season opener. He has not participated in practice since suffering the injury, so even being limited to individual drills would be a step in the right direction. Allen will have the benefit of an extra day to get healthy heading into Monday's tilt against the Bears.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Won't play Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, The Team 980 reports.

Allen suffered the left MCL sprain in the season opener and was a non-participant at practice Wednesday and Thursday, so it's not a major surprise he won't be playing Sunday. Treyvon Hester figures to see an increased role in his absence, especially if Caleb Brantley (ankle) is also ruled out.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.

Allen also wasn't present on the team's rehab field, so they're clearly taking precautions with the third-year defensive end. The Redskins' pass rush clearly will take a hit in Sunday's game versus the Cowboys if he can't play, especially since Caleb Brantley (ankle) is also hurting. Treyvon Hester likely will start if Allen or Brantley can't go.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Injury not serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) is not expected to be out long-term after suffering an MCL sprain in the Redskins' season opening loss to the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Allen does not have a concrete time frame for a return at this point, so consider him week-to-week. He has yet to be officially ruled out for Week 2, but it seems likely he will be at this point. Caleb Brantley (ankle), Treyvon Hester and even T.Y. McGill should all be in line for bigger workloads assuming Allen sits out.

Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Unlikely for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is considered week-to-week with an MCL sprain and isn't expected to play in Washington's Week 2 game versus the Cowboys, Grant Paulsen of The Athletic reports.

Allen played just seven snaps in the season-opening loss to Philadelphia before leaving with the injury. The Redskins' pessimism about Allen's availability seven days in advance of their next game suggests the defensive end could be in line to miss multiple contests. With Caleb Brantley (ankle) also hurting, reserve Tim Settle could move into the starting lineup for Sunday afternoon's matchup with Dallas.
