Jaguars' Josh Allen: Moves to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that the 23-year-old will miss "considerable time" after suffering the knee injury, so it's no surprise to see him shift to injured reserve. Allen will be eligible to return for the Dec. 20 matchup with Baltimore, but he may require additional time to recover from the injury. Rookie K'Lavon Chaisson is primed to step into the starting role in his absence.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Will miss extended time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Allen avoided ligament damage in his knee but will miss "considerable time," John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Marrone didn't elaborate on the nature of Allen's injury, but he made it sound like an IR stint could be in the works. The Jaguars won't rush their star defensive end back with the playoffs out of reach, so rookie K'Lavon Chaisson figures to get an extended look as a starting defensive end.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Encouraging injury news
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars believe Allen avoided a serious knee injury, but he'll have further tests Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Allen is still expected to miss some game time, but he may avoid an IR stint and return after just a couple of weeks. The 2019 first-round pick is enduring a bit of a sophomore slump with just 2.5 sacks through eight games after racking up 10.5 through 16 games last season. If tests reveal that he indeed will be required to miss games, K'Lavon Chaisson is expected to start at defensive end.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Knee injury ends day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's matchup against the Steelers.

Allen was initially pegged doubtful upon sustaining his knee injury at the 8:52 mark of the third quarter, but he was subsequently downgraded to out. With Jacksonville trailing 17-3 entering the fourth quarter, rookie K'Lavon Chaisson will be counted on in a more integral pass-rush role for the remainder of the contest.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Cleared for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Allen practiced in full Friday, confirming coach Doug Marrone's claim that the 2019 first-rounder is on track to suit up Sunday. He'll make his return after a two-game absence and look to build on his season total of two sacks.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: On track for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Marrone relayed Monday that Allen (knee) is on track to play Sunday versus the Chargers, John Shipley of reports.

Allen has missed two games but looks set on returning to action Week 7. The second-year defensive end recorded seven tackles and two sacks through the first four contests, and rookie K'Lavon Chaisson has filled in while Allen has been sidelined. While Marrone is optimistic, we'll have a better idea of Allen's progress when practices start up Wednesday.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Inactive against Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) won't suit up in Sunday's game against Detroit, Michael DiRocco of ESPN reports.

Allen drew a questionable tag this week after only suiting up in practice on a limited basis. It will be the second straight game missed for the Kentucky product, who has two sacks this campaign already. In his stead, look for rookie K'Lavon Chaisson to take on an increased role for Week 6.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Allen wasn't able to suit up against the Texans last week -- the first missed game of his career -- but it looks as though the star defensive end has a fair shot to retake the field versus Detroit. The 2019 first-round pick has two sacks through four appearances this season.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Able to practice on limited basis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Allen's knee injury kept him out of game action for the first time in his career last week against the Texans, but the pass rusher has taken a step in the right direction after being unable to practice in the lead-up to last week's absence. Consider Allen more likely than not to suit up Sunday against the Lions, but it's best to monitor his practice participation as the week unfolds to be sure.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Downgrades to out for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Allen will miss his first game since being selected in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The Kentucky product has been solid this season with two sacks through four games, and he'll miss out on an appealing matchup against Deshaun Watson, who has been sacked 16 times this year. Rookie defensive end K'Lavon Chaisson is expected to start in Allen's place Sunday.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Availability in question Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game at Houston, Michael DiRocco of reports.

The 23-year-old didn't participate at practice Wednesday and Thursday, and he wasn't seen during the portion of practice available to the media Friday. Allen has two sacks through four games, and his potential absence would be a big loss for Jacksonville's defensive front.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Knee injury pops up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

This is the first we're hearing of a knee injury for Allen, though he missed a Wednesday practice earlier in the season with a calf injury and didn't wind up on the final injury report that week. Allen's practice participation should be monitored ahead of Sunday's clash with the Texans, as he's a key piece on the Jacksonville defense with two sacks and seven quarterback hits through four games.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Tallies another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen had two tackles and a sack during Sunday's 33-25 loss to the Bengals.

The 2019 first-round pick didn't record a sack through the first two games of the season, but he now has sacks in back-to-back contests. Allen has only seven total tackles, so he'll need to be more involved beyond the pass rush to be a viable IDP option.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: First sack of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen had two solo tackles and one sack during Thursday's 31-13 loss to the Dolphins.

Allen had accounted for three quarterback hits on the year heading into Thursday's contest, and he managed to chase down Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second half for his first official sack of the season. The second-year pro doesn't have much help in Jacksonville's pass rush, so he may have difficulties matching last year's 10.5 sack total, but he has a favorable matchup in Cincinnati on deck for Week 4.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Ready for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (calf) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Tennessee, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Allen logged a DNP/LP/FP practice slate this week, and it looks as though he's fully recovered from the calf cramps that caused him to leave the season opener against Indianapolis early. The second-year pro should handle a full workload Sunday, making him a viable option in IDP formats.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Sidelined Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Allen was forced to exit Sunday's win against the Colts due to calf cramps, but coach Doug Marrone said he expects the second-year pro to return to practice Thursday. If Allen is indeed able to resume handling practice reps without much delay, he'll be trending in the right direction to suit up against Tennessee in Week 2.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Recovering from calf cramps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is expected to sit out Wednesday's practice due to a calf issue, Michael DiRocco of reports.

Allen was removed in the second half of Jacksonville's Week 1 win over the Colts after experiencing some calf cramping. Before leaving, the second-year edge rusher totaled two tackles (one solo) over 46 defensive snaps. Coach Doug Marrone downplayed the calf concern, saying that he expects Allen to return to practice Thursday. Assuming that's the case, Allen should be in good shape to handle a full workload in Sunday's game at Tennessee.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Primed for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (shoulder) is poised to start at defensive end in 2020 following the departure of Calais Campbell, Hays Carlyon of 1010 AM WJXL Jacksonville reports.

Campbell has been the heart and soul of the defense since joining Jacksonville in 2017, but Allen is set to take over that role after the veteran was traded to the Ravens. Allen played in all 16 games and had four starts as a rookie, and he recorded 44 total tackles and 10.5 sacks despite mostly working in a rotational role. The 22-year-old was nursing a shoulder injury at the end of the regular season, but he was able to play in the Pro Bowl and tally one sack.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Suffers shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen was forced out of Sunday's game against the Colts with a shoulder injury, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars' official site reports.

Allen had an excellent rookie campaign, as he recorded 44 tackles and 10.5 sacks to live up to his first-round pedigree. It's unsettled how severe the 22-year-old's injury is, but there doesn't seem to be concern about his status for the 2020 season at this time.

Jaguars' Josh Allen: Quiet Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen had one solo tackle and two quarterback hits during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Allen dealt with a shoulder injury at practice during the week but playing a typical 56 percent of defensive snaps Sunday. The rookie first-round pick has 40 tackles (29 solo), 10 sacks and two forced fumbles despite mostly working in a rotational role.
