DE - JAC
Week 17 Outlook
The Jaguars placed DL Josh Allen (knee) on injured reserve.
It was believed that Allen's knee injury wasn't serious, but that isn't the case. The edge rusher will now miss at least three games, which is bad news for a Jacksonville D that was already struggling to generate pressure.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the knee injury Jaguars DL Josh Allen suffered in Week 11 "is not believed to be serious based on the initial diagnosis."
Rapoport adds that Allen is expected to miss some games, "but nothing long-term." Of course, this will be a blow to an already struggling Jacksonville defense.
DE Josh Allen (knee) will not play in Sunday's contest against the Lions.
Allen (knee) was questionable heading in Sunday's contest against the Lions, but was ultimately ruled out. The Jaguars' star DE will miss his second consecutive game. His absence only helps Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense. Allen will need additional time to recover from a knee injury and will look to return Week 7 against the Chargers.
DE Josh Allen (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Allen was inactive for Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Texans. He missed his first game of the season due to a knee injury. Allen was able to practice this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. If Allen is ruled out Week 6, his absence only helps Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense.
Jacksonville Jaguars star defensive end Josh Allen was able to practice on Wednesday after being an early rule out for Week 5.
Allen returning to the field will be a big boost for a defensive unit that was only able to muster one sack on Deshaun Watson in Week 5. Allen continues to boast DL1 upside for IDP leagues but has not been as consistent as one would like. Allen should be cleared to play this week after practicing on a Wednesday, but as last week's surprise inactives of Myles Jack and C.J. Henderson taught us, anything is on the table for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
