While Washington Redskins defensive end Jonathan Allen admits to making progress, he's not sure he'll be ready for a full workload when Organized Team Activities begin in a few weeks.
Allen recorded 10 tackles and one sack in five games during his rookie season before being placed on injured reserve with a Lisfranc foot injury.
"I'm going to be honest, the OTAs they start like end of April, and this will be my first time, so I would like to think so, but I mean, honestly, there's no way of telling at this point," Allen said, via the team's website. "I feel like I'm going to be in a good spot come OTAs, so I'm excited for that, and right now, I'm just taking it day by day just trying to grind."
Allen, who was the 17th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft out of Alabama, did note that he sees improvement with his foot, however.
"I'm out there running, getting off the ball, cutting back," Allen told said. "And there's definitely a balance because you don't want to rush back so early, but I feel really good right now. I'm excited about how much progress I made, and I'm looking forward to getting started."
