UPDATE: Not surprisingly, Allen has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen has injured his ankle and Alex Smith is going to replace him late in the first quarter of Week 9. New York Giants defensive back Jabrill Peppers came rushing the quarterback and as Allen tried to spin away, Peppers effectively leg-whipped Allen.

Smith started warming up and Allen was taken off the field on a cart with an air cast around his left lower leg. Allen was 5 of 7 for 62 yards before the injury.
