Washington Redskins defensive lineman Jonathan Allen will miss the rest of the season after suffering a Lisfranc injury in his left foot during Sunday’s win over San Francisco, a source said Wednesday.
Allen underwent surgery Wednesday on the foot, a source said, and had multiple screws inserted into it. The recovery period will be at least three months.
It’s a crushing blow for a defense that had been improving, in part because of Allen’s performance.
Daily Norseman would like to remind you that the Minnesota Vikings aren’t out of this yet:
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Allen will visit with noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to determine the severity of the injury. Gruden said Allen would hopefully miss only three to four weeks, though they’ll know more about his absence after he visits Anderson.
The Patriots, for all their warts, are clearly the class of the division and their two losses have come against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Panthers, that have a combined record of 7-1 against non-Patriot teams in 2017. They’re good opponents that had good days, while the Patriots defense struggled to find its footing.
Buffalo Rumblings begs to differ about the Patriots:
He transformed from functionary to human being, and when he was asked a question about grieving — a question that somehow seemed utterly appropriate — Zimmer paused and looked down. After a deep breath, he looked to the sky as his lower lip quivered. My wife passed away seven years ago, he said. It was a tough day. The sun came up the next day, the world kept spinning, people kept going to work. That’s what we’re going to do.
