Safety Nate Allen was sidelined for Friday’s practice with a hamstring injury.
Wearing just a jersey and baseball cap, Allen looked on as the rest of the team worked under the bubble at the NovaCare Complex Friday afternoon.
This is a concerning development for the Eagles, who lack quality safety depth. Allen exited in the fourth quarter against Detroit with a hamstring injury a couple weeks back and it cost the defense. Colt Anderson, a quality special teams player but unproven at safety, replaced Allen and the unit suffered for it. If Allen can’t go, either Anderson or David Sims would replace him.
