  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Placed on IR

    Allen was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Allen suffered a calf injury against the Ravens on Thursday and did not return, but it ends up the issue is a fairly serious one. Allen will likely now be done for the remainder of the season as a result.

  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Questionable to return

    Allen suffered a calf injury Thursday against the Ravens and is questionable to return.

    The Dolphins only had three safeties active for Thursday's contest -- leaving Reshad Jones and Michael Thomas as the only options left in the Dolphins' secondary. Look for more updates on Allen's status to come as the contest continues.

  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Settles lawsuit

    Allen has settled a wrongful arrest lawsuit with the City of Fort Myers, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

    The arrest happened in 2015 before Allen signed with the Raiders. Allen remains the starting safety for Miami and has 17 tackles this season but could be relegated to a backup role when T.J. McDonald returns from suspension on Nov. 13.

  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Returns to practice

    Allen (hamstring) took part in practice Wednesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Allen departed last Sunday's loss to the Jets early due to injury, but his presence on the field for the first practice of the new week suggests he's on track to suit up for the Dolphins' next contest against the Saints in London. He'll assume his usual starting role at safety and attempt to keep Drew Brees and the Saints' prolific passing game in check.

  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Suffers hamstring injury

    Allen (hamstring) left Sunday's game against the Jets and is questionable to return, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.

    Allen was Miami's starter in both its games this season, posting five tackles (three solo). He's unlikely to return to the game with little time left, so his focus will shift to being ready to face the Saints in Week 4.

  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Starts in Thursday's contest

    Allen (groin) started at safety in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles.

    Allen had been dealing with a groin injury that kept him out of practice for about two weeks, but with his participation in Thursday's contest, it looks like it's now behind him. Allen is expected to start at free safety in Miami this season.

  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Still not practicing

    Allen (groin) was absent from Wednesday's practice, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Allen has now been nursing a groin injury for about a week and a half, but neither the severity or an exact timetable for return have yet to be determined. Allen was in line to start the season at free safety for the Dolphins, plans that are now in limbo pending further updates on his health.

  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Nursing groin injury

    Allen missed Monday's practice with a groin injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Allen seemed like he was in line to be the No. 1 free safety in Miami, but this injury will likely slow confirmations on that. The severity of this injury is still undisclosed.

  • Dolphins' Nate Allen: Dealing with unspecified injury

    Allen was absent from Monday's practice due to an undisclosed injury, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Allen nursed an MCL injury for much of last season when he was with the Raiders, but since he was given a clean bill of health entering training camp, it appears a different issue could be keeping him off the field. Unless Allen remains sidelined deep into the preseason, he looks like a good bet to open the regular season as a starting safety along with Reshad Jones.
