Nate Allen will be out the rest of the year, according to reports.
That would mean that the Eagles second-round pick -- the guy they took with the “Donovan McNabb pick” they got from the Redskins -- will join Eagles first-round pick Brandon Graham on the injured reserve list.
Allen hurt himself late in the first half of the Eagles-Giants game while trying to slow up on a 10-yard grab by New York's Mario Manningham. Allen was down on the turf for a couple minutes before being carted off.
Expect Allen to have surgery soon. Sources told Eskin that with this type of injury surgery needs to happen within a week.
Looking back on Allen’s season. He showed growing pains along the way but was fairly impressive at free safety. He had 48 tackles, two sacks, three interceptions and a forced fumble in his rookie campaign.
The question now will be if Allen can get himself ready in time for training camp.
