The New England Patriots believe there is a possibility that injured punter Ryan Allen will be able to play in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, depending on how his shoulder responds to aggressive treatment over the course of the week, according to sources. The plan with Allen, while fluid, reflects why the Patriots have not had any free-agent punters in for workouts as of 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Allen suffered a sprained AC joint, sources said, when he was tackled by multiple Indianapolis Colts players while running down a high snap in the second quarter of last Saturday’s AFC divisional round playoff game.via - NFL Nation
