Washington QB Allen says ankle surgery successful

Washington Football Team quarterback Kyle Allen said Saturday he has undergone successful surgery on his left ankle after suffering the season-ending injury in Week 9 against the New York Giants.

Allen, who is out for the year, used Instagram to say he’s optimistic that he will make a full recovery and be ready for next season. Allen was replaced in the starting lineup by Alex Smith, who will start for Washington (2-6) against the Lions (3-5) on Sunday in Detroit.

Allen, 24, has thrown for 610 yards, with four touchdowns and an interception. He’s completed 69 percent of his passes and Washington is 1-3 in his starts.

Allen replaced Dwayne Haskins as the Washington starter prior to the team’s Week 5 home loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Allen, a third-year pro, appeared in 15 games, with 13 starts, over 2018-19 with the Carolina Panthers.

Haskins, who Washington picked in the first round (15th overall) out of Ohio State in 2019, threw for 2,304 yards with 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while appearing in 13 games over the last two seasons. Washington had a 3-8 record in his 11 starts.
