Patriots TE Dwayne Allen To Miss Time

Patriots tight end Dwayne Allen suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s loss to the Titans, Mike Giardi of (on Twitter) hears. Fortunately, Allen does not need surgery, but he is expected to miss a few weeks.

The Patriots have their bye this week, so Allen has a bit of extra time to rest up. They also expect to have Rob Gronkowski in the lineup for their Nov. 25 game against the Jets, so they don’t necessarily have to make a move.

Still, even with Gronk, the Pats could arguably use a blocking tight end in the mix. Backup Jacob Hollister suited up on Sunday after healing up from a hamstring injury, but he lost weight during his recovery and no longer profiles as a prototypical blocker, as Doug Kyed of NESN tweets.

    SMH Pats haters are funny. A loss in November and throwing stones. Come January will be back again in AFC championship game with another shot at a title. Not saying they win it all but in the end they are always in it.

      Well of course they are always in it….who wouldn’t be with divisional doormats like Buffalo and the Jets to feast on each season?

    Simply pressure Brady and the Pats are dead in the water. A quarterback that can’t handle pressure is not even close to a top QB… The Pats play in the softest division with the easiest schedule…
