Allen leaves game vs. Giants after suffering awful-looking ankle injury

Football Team

Kyle Allen's game against the Giants, and very possibly the rest of his season, is done after the quarterback suffered a really awful-looking injury in the first quarter of the Week 9 matchup.

The team announced shortly after that he would be out of the game.

In trying to avoid a blitzing Jabrill Peppers during one of Washington's early possessions on Sunday, Allen went to roll out to the right, but as Peppers was tripped up by a cut block, his leg came around and hit Allen's left calf/ankle hard. 

Here's video of the sequence. It's not pretty at all, just to warn you:

Immediately after the collision, one of the officials motioned over to the Washington sideline that Allen needed attention. He was eventually carted off:

Alex Smith took over for Allen, and no one needs a reminder on why that is significant.
