Rams' Brian Allen: Nearing clearance from COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) tested positive for coronavirus in March but is expected to be fully cleared sometime this week, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports.

The 24-year-old becomes the first known NFL player to test positive for coronavirus. The Rams were reportedly made aware of his positive test three weeks ago, but Allen is now free of symptoms and should receive full clearance within days. Allen is also recovering from an MCL injury that landed him on injured reserve in November, but coach Sean McVay previously said the offensive lineman is on track to be ready for the start of the 2020 season.

Rams' Brian Allen: On track for season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay said Thursday that Allen (knee) is expected to make a full recovery in time to kick off the 2020 regular season, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

Allen is recovering from a significant MCL injury sustained early November, the severity of which caused him to sit out the remainder of the 2019 season on injured reserve. While it remains to be seen whether Allen will be cleared to participate in OTAs in April, it's certainly positive to see that he's not in danger of missing the start of the 2020 regular season.
