Allen took a big hit to the head and has since been taken to the locker room for evaluation.
Allen is considered questionable to return with an arm injury.
Earlier in the day, Jason La Canfora reported that Washington hopeful Smith would be able to take over the starting job in a few weeks. However, looks like he’ll get an opportunity to show what he can today.
Smith, 36, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2005. After seven years in San Francisco, Smith was traded to the Chiefs in 2013.
Smith was in the fourth year of his five-year, $76 million contract that includes $45 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $10.8 million for the 2018 season when he was traded to Washington.
Washington and Smith later agreed to a four-year, $94 million contract that included $55 million fully guaranteed.
In 2018, Smith appeared in 10 games for Washington and completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 2,045 yards to go along with 10 touchdowns and five interceptions. He has also rushed for 168 yards and a touchdown.
