Draft Scout Antonio Allen News
08/12/15 - S Antonio Allen (torn Achilles) was waived/injured by the Jets Friday and was placed on reserve/injured the following day after clearing waivers. Allen was injured in practice Thursday. Allen, a seventh-round draft pick in 2012 who played cornerback and safety last year, was projected as a backup to Marcus Gilchrist and Calvin Pryor this season before he was injured on a non-contact play.
Allen had 118 tackles, 13 passes defended and 2.5 sacks from 2012 to 2014.
"It's a tough break for him," Jets coach Todd Bowles said. "He was having a good camp. He's a guy that comes to work, practices hard and he plays hard. Just a freak accident."
