The Eagles announced on Friday evening that defensive tackle Beau Allen passed a physical and was removed from the Active/Non-Football Injury list. He can practice with the team Sunday, which will be the Eagles' first time on the field since Thursday's win over Miami.
Allen suffered a pectoral injury back in April. Unable to practice at the start of Training Camp, Allen was placed on the Active/NFI list until today.
The 25-year-old Allen is entering his fourth NFL season. He has not missed a single regular-season game in his career. The former seventh-round pick out of Wisconsin has 78 tackles, five tackles for loss, and one sack in 48 games (five starts). An ironman in college as well, Allen set a school record with 54 games played.
Allen's return ahead of the final preseason game next week against the Jets presents an interesting challenge for the personnel staff. Defensive tackle is one of the deepest position groups on the roster with Fletcher Cox and Tim Jernigan leading the way.
Maybe Allen was able to harness the power of the solar eclipse.
