Dolphins planning to put Will Allen on injured reserve
by: Ethan J. Skolnick September 5th, 2010 | 2:19 PM

The Dolphins have decided to put veteran cornerback Will Allen on injured reserve, ending his season, according to a source.

Allen, a starter for the Dolphins since 2005, had major surgery on his left knee and missed the last 10 games of the 2009 season. The knee bothered him during training camp, so he had it cleaned up on Aug. 12.

While he would not be ready to play in the season opener at Buffalo on Sunday, he had been targeting the third game against the New York Jets for his return. Sean Smith has struggled in a starting role in training camp and in the preseason and so, even with the addition of nickel cornerback Benny Sapp, Allen was expected to see significant playing time.

It is possible that Allen and his agent Drew Rosenhaus could attempt to negotiate his release.

More to come……

Sounds like poor management.
(see Joey Porter, Jason Taylor, Eric Green, Josh McCown, Ernest Wilford situations)

If he cant play why take up a spot?

As far as doing it before and keeping Ness, maybe they were waiting to see who else got released...

Ness wasnt exactly lighting it up this pre season...

What the hell is going on? I thought he was shakey for week 1 but was going to be close. PUP would have killed him?

Wasn't eligible for PUP anymore.

That's a huge loss. Devastating.

omg... this is ridiculous. There is no way that injury last year would keep him out all of this year. Bad management on somebody's part. Will Allen was "the guy" for our CB corps.

Wether you homers want to believe it or not; Will Allen > Sean Smith.

This is a huge & costly blow.

I knew it was a bad situation as Omar reported he was a shell of his former self ... but I thought he'd be back this season.

BTW, it didn't take up a roster spot ... just for a moment while we churned our roster ... once moved to IR, the spot opens back up for 'churnees' & we've even re-churned since.

Why play a guy if his knee is blown out? Have you guys seen him play this preseason? No?

Well there...how is this a huge blow? Because you were holding out hope for a player that tore his ACL last year? Some guys never recover....so the same should go for Patrick Cobbs as well.

Don't freak out if Miami cuts Cobbs.

What is the possibility of us trading him to another team now? Is he still elgible to play for someone else if we find a trade partner???

I'm not really sure what we were thinking on this one?
:???

I don't get this. I thought any player could be eligible for the PUP if they're injured. Gives the team 6 weeks of leeway.

You have to be put on it at the beginning of camp. Can't put somebody there right before the season starts.
