Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Exits Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Chargers with an ankle injury, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Allen started Sunday's game at strong-side linebacker but left early in the first quarter. He was initially considered probable to return but downgraded to questionable after going to the locker room. Myles Jack (ankle) is inactive Sunday as well, so Kamalei Correa and Quincy Williams should be every-down linebackers for the time being.

Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

This news is a bit surprising, as the Texas Tech product will suit up despite not suing up for any practice time this week. In his past two games in spot-start duty, Allen has racked up 13 tackles (seven solo) while playing in 100 percent of his team's defensive snaps last game. Now healthy, he'll assume his usual starting role as the team's starting strongside linebacker.

Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Questionable versus Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

The 24-year-old sat out practice the first two days of the week with the foot issue, but he showed enough Friday to earn the questionable tag. Allen had seven tackles and played every defensive snap as a fill-in starter Week 5, but even if healthy he should return to a reserve role against the Lions with Myles Jack (ankle) clear of the injury report.

Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (foot) was a non participant during Wednesday's practice.

Allen filled in as a starter last week for the injured Myles Jack (ankle), racking up seven tackles (five solo) in the loss to Houston. Now it appears Allen is dealing with the foot issue, leaving the linebacking corps thin at the moment. If both Allen and Jack are forced to miss Week 6, Cassius Marsh and Kamalei Correa would be in line for starting roles at linebacker.

Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Filling in as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is expected to start at weakside linebacker for Sunday's game against Houston, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

With Myles Jack (ankle) missing Sunday's game, Allen will step in for the start. The 24-year-old finally saw action on defense after playing strictly on special teams this season, racking up six tackles (two solo). Allen will hope to top that output in Week 5, as he'll be tasked with slowing down the powerful David Johnson and the Texans' run game.

Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Good to go Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Allen was considered questionable due to the hamstring injury but is ready to suit up for the season finale. The 24-year-old should work in his usual role on special teams against Indianapolis.

Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Managing hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts due to a hamstring injury.

Allen worked as a limited practice participant this week and appears to have a decent chance of playing Week 17. The 24-year-old has exclusively played special teams since signing with the Jaguars earlier in December, so his availability is unlikely to impact the defense in the season finale.

Jaguars' Dakota Allen: Signs with Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen signed with the Jaguars on Tuesday, Michael DiRocco of reports.

This move comes after linebacker Jake Ryan was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Allen has bounced around a bit in his young NFL career as this will be his third team as a rookie. He'll add depth behind Donald Payne in the middle of the Jacksonville linebacking corps.

Dakota Allen: Waived by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was waived by the Raiders on Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Allen signed with the Raiders in late September and exclusively played special teams in his two game appearances. The rookie seventh-round pick was drafted by the Rams but will now look to find a new team.

Raiders' Dakota Allen: Headed to Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is signing with the Raiders, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

The Raiders are signing the 23-year-old linebacker off the Rams practice squad due to the fact that Vontaze Burfict (elbow), Nick Morrow (undisclosed) and Marquel Lee (ankle) are all currently dealing with injuries. Allen, a standout from Texas Tech, was selected in the seventh round of April's draft but failed to crack a spot on the Rams 53-man roster.

Rams' Dakota Allen: Headed to LA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams selected Allen in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 251st overall.

Allen is an undersized linebacker at 6-foot-1, 232 pounds, but he served as a starter in each of his three years at Texas Tech and offers standout quickness if nothing else (10.92 agility score). He projects as a special teams player for now.
