Fowler went on to say the team won't know if Allen is out for the year until later, but it seems to be trending that way. The injury seems to be paving the way for Smith to potentially start the remainder of the season, according to sources. Haskins is also available but the team doesn't seem to want to go back to him. Smith is worth picking up in deeper leagues or in two-QB leagues for those in need at the position.
The initial diagnosis for Washington QB Kyle Allen's injury is a dislocated ankle and only a small fracture.
Still an unfortunate injury, but definitely better than what some may have originally thought, just based on seeing the injury live. So, fortunately, no compound fracture. Still, it's a significant injury. Alex Smith is now in at quarterback and likely will be going forward, perhaps for the rest of the season, unless Dwayne Haskins gets inserted back in at some point during the second half of the season.
Washington QB Kyle Allen suffered a gruesome lower-body injury during Sunday's game against the Giants.
Jordan Raanan of ESPN compared the injury to that of Dak Prescott, which we know was not good. Very unfortunate for Allen. In his place is the quarterback that just recovered from his own horrific injury from 2018, Alex Smith. We wish all the best to Kyle in his recovery.
