Setback for DE Allen in promising rookie season

(TSX / STATS) -- ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins rookie defensive end Jonathan Allen looked like he belonged from the moment he took the field during organized team activities in May.

A first-round draft pick, chosen No. 17 overall from Alabama, Allen spent the rest of the summer and his first six NFL games showing that initial impression was correct. But his promising first season is likely over after having surgery to repair a Lisfranc sprain in his left foot. Washington placed Allen on injured reserve Thursday, a blow to a defense that has dramatically improved against the run.

(Allen) is a young player, but he plays it like a veteran. He has got great fundamentals," Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said. "He's got a great idea of run, pass, how to get off blocks. He has got strong hands and he was getting a pretty consistent pass rush push."
