Colts Release P Ryan Allen From Practice Squad

The Colts announced on Monday they have released P Ryan Allen from the practice squad. 

Starting P Rigoberto Sanchez is back and healthy after surgery to remove a cancerous tumor, so the Colts didn’t need another punter. 

Indianapolis’ practice squad now includes: 

  1. DB Andre Chachere
  2. DT Kameron Cline
  3. G Jake Eldrenkamp
  4. TE Farrod Green
  5. C Joey Hunt
  6. T Carter O’Donnell
  7. DT Chris Williams
  8. DT Robert Windsor
  9. RB Darius Anderson
  10. S Ibraheim Campbell (COVID-19)
  11. DB Will Sunderland
  12. WR Daurice Fountain
  13. RB Paul Perkins
  14. OT J’Marcus Webb
  15. LB Chris Covington

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 two games for the Colts. He’s averaged 48.6 yards per punt on 14 attempts with a long kick of 65 yards, two touchbacks and two kicks inside the 20.
