Jaguars Rookie Josh Allen Sits out OTAs with Knee Injury; No Long-Term Concern

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Josh Allen missed Thursday's practice after suffering a bruised right knee in organized team activities.

"If he was going to be back tomorrow, I wouldn't say anything and it would be fine," Jaguars coach Doug Marrone told reporters. "We're going to be cautious. It's the time of year where you can be. You don't need to rush anyone back.

"He's in shape. He's strong. He's done everything we've asked. Any other player, we'd be doing the same thing. But just because it's him, I think you need to make sure that you set everybody straight so no one goes conspiracy theory.
