Ron Rivera Presser: Jonathan Allen should be fine, he wanted to go back out there

Ron Rivera speaks to the media after today’s practice

The Washington Football Team held a very important practice today, and it got more intense as expected. Ron Rivera has 1 more week to evaluate his team before rosters get cut down to 53 players next Sunday at 4pm. He said there are 7 or 8 players that need to be evaluated. The team did special teams work today that will determine the fate of some of these bottom of the roster guys. Rivera said the team has more depth than coaches thought it did, and specifically mentioned the safeties.

The big news of the day was Jonathan Allen going down with an apparent left knee injury. Rivera said he got rolled up on, it doesn’t look that serious, and they had to stop him from getting back onto the field. The team has been cautious with players who get knicked up in camp, and allowed them to heal so the injury doesn’t get more aggravated. He mentioned Chase Young as someone they gave generous time to before allowing him to return to full practice. This is good news for Allen, and reporters said he was walking fine after practice.
