It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.
Allen, 30, wound up signing on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech back in 2013. Allen had one year remaining on his rookie contract when he and the Patriots agreed to a new three-year extension back in 2015.
Allen re-signed with the Patriots last year only for the team to cut him loose during the preseason. The Falcons signed him to a contract a few months later and he was on off of their roster throughout the season.
Atlanta brought Allen back on a one-year deal this past February before releasing him in August. He spent some time with the Titans before recently signing on to the Colts’ practice squad.
In 2020, Allen has appeared in one game for the Titans and totaled 404 yards on eight attempts (50.5 YPA).
