Analysis: The team made the announcement a day after the Falcons' 43-37 loss to the Saints in overtime. Allen was carted off the field in the middle of the fourth quarter. The fourth-year veteran from Purdue is the leader of the Falcons' defense. He has played both safety spots and nickel cornerback. That left a void in a unit that lost starting strong safety Keanu Neal to a season-ending knee injury in the opener.
