Cortez Allen’s Knee May Be Worse Than We Think

Like many of you, when I saw that Steelers’ cornerback Cortez Allen would not play today due to a knee issue I wasn’t all that surprised. I say this because it just seems to be something we expect to hear when it comes to Allen but what I’m also hearing might be worse.
