Allen (foot) will not return this season.
Coach Jay Gruden had originally said back in November that the plan was to bring Allen back before the end of the year, but the team is electing to take a cautious route with the 2017 first-round pick and hold him out for the remainder of the season. The former Alabama standout appeared in just five games for the Redskins during his rookie season, recording 10 total tackles and one sack.
Coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Allen (foot) is still on course to return off injured reserve in Week 15, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Allen was placed on injured reserve in mid-October after undergoing surgery for a Lisfranc sprain in his left foot, but recovery appears to be going well for the rookie defensive end and he should be on the field for the final three games of the regular season. Expect another update on Allen to come once he officially return to the practice field.
Allen (foot) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Allen, who underwent surgery earlier this week to address a Lisfranc sprain in his left foot, is expected to require 6-to-8 weeks to recover. It was initially expected that Allen would be sidelined for the rest of the season, and while that could still end up being the case, the Redskins aren't ruling him out as one of their two designated players to return from IR. The team will monitor his progress carefully in the weeks to come, but if the timetable holds true and Allen is close to 100 percent at some point in December, the defensive lineman could get clearance to play before 2017 concludes.

Allen, who suffered a Lisfranc injury in his left foot during Sunday's victory over San Francisco, will require surgery to have a screw placed in his foot and is facing a three-month timeline for a recovery, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. We expect him to be placed on injured reserve.
Allen (foot) sustained a Lisfranc sprain in Sunday's win over the 49ers, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
The preliminary timetable for Allen's expected absence is about a month, but Lisfranc injuries can often present a more complicated recovery. The rookie first-round pick will be evaluated further later in the week, which should provide a bit more clarity on the injury.
