Cardinals' Zach Allen: Monster performance against Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen posted 11 tackles and a sack in Sunday's 33-26 win over the Eagles.

Allen held down the edge in Week 14 against the Eagles' tandem of quarterback Jalen Hurts and tailback Miles Sanders. He piled up 11 stops as a result, shattering his previous career high of four tackles in a game. The second-year defensive end also notched his first sack since Week 1.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Returns from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

The 23-year-old landed on injured reserve with the ankle injury in late October, but he's back on the active roster in time for Week 12. Allen totaled 11 tackles and one sack in seven games before suffering the injury.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Designated to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (ankle) was designated to return from injured reserve Tuesday, opening the 21-day window for him to be activated, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Allen has missed the requisite amount of time on injured reserve and is eligible to return as soon as Sunday's game against the Patriots. The Cardinals could sorely use Allen back in the lineup, as defensive ends Jordan Phillips (hamstring) and Leki Fotu (ankle) have both gone to IR in the past two weeks. Allen should be an immediate starter once he returns to action.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals placed Allen (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

The Cardinals believe Allen has a chance to return after a minimum three-week stint on IR, which would mean he could play Week 11 against the Seahawks -- a Thursday night contest. The 2019 third-round pick has started two games this year and maintains a consistent role on the team's defense, but until he returns to action, Leki Fotu, Jordan Phillips (hamstring) and Angelo Blackson should handle expanded roles.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Limps off early on SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen limped off the field and into the medical tent after sustaining a leg injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Urban adds that trainers were looking at Allen's ankle or knee following a noncontact injury. Allen's return should be considered questionable at this time, and Leki Fotu will likely slide into his spot at defensive end. Allen's injury has been clarified as an ankle injury, and he's officially questionable to return.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Likely to start in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) is likely to be a starter at defensive end for Arizona in 2020, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

The 2019 third-round pick started one of four games to begin last season, but he missed the final 12 games of the year with the neck injury. Allen is eager to get back on the field after an offseason with no on-field activities due to the pandemic, and he's expected to fill a prominent role on Arizona's defensive line.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals placed Allen (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Allen has sat out six straight games, and the Cardinals chose to shut down their rookie third-rounder for the remainder of the year. The defensive end finished his rookie campaign with eight tackles (six solo) and no sacks. The Cardinals will roll with Jonathan Bullard, Rodney Gunter and Michael Dogbe at defensive end for now.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Out for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Allen was unable to practice in any capacity this week, indicating that he may still be a ways away from playing. Jonathan Bullard figures to continue seeing an increased role until Allen is able to return to game action.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Fourth straight game on sidelines
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

This will be Allen's fourth straight missed game, and the rookie still hasn't returned to practice. Jonathan Bullard is the primary beneficiary of Allen's absence, but Clinton McDonald figures to continue slotting in as well.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Still out Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Allen will miss his third straight game after suffering the neck injury Week 4 against the Seahawks. The 22-year-old didn't practice again this week so his status for Week 8 also remains murky.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Unable to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Allen will miss his second straight game. He was a non-participant in Friday's practice, so it appears he'll have an uphill battle to getting ready for Week 7's game against the Giants. Expect Jonathan Bullard to start at defensive end in his place.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) did not practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Allen's has trended down each day this week, going from full to limited to no participation in three consecutive days. As such, the defensive end's status could come down to a game-time decision. If Allen sits out, Jonathan Bullard is in line to take over his starting role for the Cardinals.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Unable to log full session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) was limited at Thursday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Allen was able to practice in full Wednesday, making his limitation Thursday concerning. It is unclear what the reasoning for the downward trend is, but Allen's Friday practice designation will likely be a good indication of his Week 6 availability. Jonathan Bullard is in line to take over for Allen at defensive end if he is unable to suit up.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) was a full participant for Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Allen suffered the injury in the team's Week 4 loss to Seattle, and was forced to miss last week with the injury. As evidenced by this news, the rookie appears to be ready for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Once officially announced active, expect Allen to resume his usual starting role as one of the team's defensive ends.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Won't play Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bengals, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The rookie third-round pick hurt his neck in last week's game versus the Seahawks, and he was unable to practice all week. It's still uncertain how serious this injury is, but Allen now will shift his focus to getting healthy for Week 6's game versus the Falcons.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen won't return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks due to a shoulder injury, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear how the rookie picked up the injury, but, as evidenced by this news, it will cost him the rest of Week 4. With Allen sidelined, look for Clinton McDonald and Johnathan Bullard to see increased reps for the remainder of the game. It's likely the team provides an update on Allen's status following the game or in the coming days.

Cardinals' Zach Allen: First pick of third round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals selected Allen in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 65th overall.

A highly productive player at Boston College, Allen recorded 100 tackles as a junior in 2017 and kept it up as a senior by living in opposing backfields, notching 15.0 tackles for loss. Allen is long-levered with 34 6/8-inch arms and an excellent motor. He will be an asset in run defense, but his lack of explosiveness off the ball limits his pass rushing upside.
