Washington was in the news on Wednesday for re-signing one of their backup quarterbacks, and meanwhile, their other backup quarterback is seemingly progressing well in his recovery from a severe injury in 2020.

Kyle Allen went down with a dislocated ankle in Week 9 against the New York Giants and missed the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair said ankle. On Thursday a video of him doing some single leg squats was posted, and his stability on that ankle looks to be improving.

There isn’t a certainty that Allen will be on the roster in 2021, but as an exclusive rights free agent, his path back to the depth chart is more likely than being released. Depending on how the quarterback search plays out for Washington over the coming months, it’s very possible that Allen is left competing for the starting spot with Taylor Heinicke, and potentially other unnamed players.
