“He got out of some stuff [against the Raiders]. They had him dead to rights one time. But some how, some way, he squeaked out of there and ran for a first down. It was unbelievable how he did it. But again that’s instincts taking over. We’re going to tell you when you get close to the sidelines, throw it away, run out of bounds, slide. All those things. We talk to him daily about it.”
Tight end Dwayne Allen suffered a hip injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s game. He stayed in for several plays after he was hurt before going to the sidelines for the rest of the game.
He was hurt after falling awkwardly while attempting to make a catch. Allen, who had missed most of training camp and all of the pre-season as he recovered from a foot injury, caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.
Pagano said Monday that Allen’s magnetic resonance imaging test came back negative, which is good news. The second-year tight end from Clemson will undergo treatment today and may be able to practice on Wednesday. The coach remains hopeful that Allen will be able to start this week’s home game with Miami.
Inside linebacker Pat Angerer, meanwhile, is continuing to undergo the NFL-mandated concussion protocols. His status for the Dolphins game remains unresolved.
Inside linebacker Kavell Conner (ankle) and wide receiver David Reed (concussion/quad) may be cleared to resume practicing this week.
