It was just a few days ago that the Jacksonville Jaguars have released long-term linebacker Russell Allen after he has failed his off-season physical with the team. But now with today’s reports its understanding on why the team has decided to part ways with Allen.
According to team reports, last season during the week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills, Allen sustained a stroke on the sidelines. It was first reported as a concussion but it then turned much more serious. Russell has a dead-spot in his brain’s cerebellum which has now resulted in the end of his football career.
The former San Diego State standout joined the Jacksonville Jaguars back in 2009 where he was signed on to the team as an undrafted free agent. Allen over his six year NFL career would primarily be used as the Jaguars backup linebacker for the team. Allen finishes his NFL career with a total of 252 tackles, 2 sacks and 1 career interception.
Everybody here at The PSI Network would like to give our condolences to Russell Allen as we hope he continues his football career as a coach.
