Allen, who suffered a concussion in the team’s third preseason game against the New York Giants, was wearing a red (non-contact) jersey when the Jets last practiced Friday, so it’s certainly a positive development as he looks to return from injury.
The Jets begin the 2014 regular season against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
The only reason Allen, who has played safety his entire career, was moved to corner is because New York’s secondary is extremely depleted.
CB Dee Milliner (ankle) did some light jogging and agility work in the rehab area and is unlikely to play on Sunday.
TE Jeff Cumberland (Achilles) took a while to warm up, but was participating in position drills during the open portion.
