Jonathan Allen, arguably the heart and soul of the Washington Football Team defense was injured on Sunday morning here at practice during a team drill.
On the play, Allen, a defensive tackle was going against the No. 2 offense and quarterback Kyle Allen, who threw a contested interception to Greg Stroman.
Allen went down and remained there for a minute or so. He had to be helped off the field by medical personnel and was struggling to put any pressure on what appeared to be his left leg.
After the incident, he appeared to be getting medical attention on a cooler behind a wall of players before trainers put what appeared to be a knee brace on his leg.
Head Coach Ron Rivera said that Allen "got rolled up on" and that the injury "doesn't look serious." Rivera said that Allen tried to get back into practice but they stopped him out of precaution.
