Washington spent the 17th overall pick on DL Jonathan Allen. The Alabama alum had been mocked into the top 5 plenty of times, but concerns about his shoulders obviously pushed him down the board. Washington's defense could get a nice boost if he stays healthy and pans out. There's IDP upside in a 3-4 DE spot.
Commanders DT Jonathan Allen left in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Browns with a knee injury and has been ruled out for the day. We'll see about his status heading into Week 18.
Washington has placed DT Jonathan Allen on the COVID list. Allen has actually seen fellow DT Matt Ioannidis pass him in snaps the past 2 weeks. A narrow Week 13 edge gave way to Ioannidis playing 66 snaps to Allen's 46 in Sunday's loss to Dallas. Allen still delivered 1 of his most productive stat lines of the season and would be a significant loss if he can't make it back for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Washington also has 3 DEs already on the COVID list. The return of Montez Sweat could particularly soften the blow of missing Allen. We'll see where the D-line sits heading into the weekend.
Washington believes DE Jonathan Allen suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Allen is headed for an MRI but is expected to miss some time. That not only takes an IDP option away for however long he's out but hurts a Washington run defense that already stunk the past 2 years.
