Bad news for the Washington Redskins.
Jonathan Allen suffered a lisfranc injury in Sunday's win against the San Francisco 49ers. Originally, the injury was suppose to keep him for 3-4 weeks.

Through five games, Allen racked up 10 tackles and only 1 sack. Despite that, Allen showed that he did not miss a step from Alabama as had his share of QB hurries.
Allen was a risk coming into the draft because of shoulder injuries he dealt with in his senior year. With these two injuries under his belt, there must be a concern for the Redskins.
Given his potential, Redskin fans will be clamoring for his return next season.
