The New England Patriots didn't feel a need to sign a new punter Saturday.

That's because punter Ryan Allen is expected to participate in today's AFC championsihp game against the Denver Broncos.

Allen has a sprained shoulder.

Allen got hurt against the Indianapolis Colts and kicker Stephen Gostkowski had to step in and punt when Allen was sidelined.
