Source: Jets to Promote Antonio Allen

With Darrelle Revis officially put on IR, I’ve learned the Jets have decided to activate Antonio Allen from the practice squad to the active roster in his place.

This comes just days after Eric Smith hurt his knee in practice, which resulted in Rex Ryan declaring that he will be out for Sunday’s game vs. Indianapolis.

Allen, a 7th round pick out of South Carolina, was very impressive this preseason but failed to make the active roster out of camp.
