Oh Jason Allen, where art thou?

Maybe it's a case of not wanting to upset the apple cart or if it ain't broke...but I'm baffled why Jason Allen hasn't seen any game action since returning to practice on an unlimited basis. I really thought he'd play against the Raiders knowing how much Carson was going to chuck the ball - especially to his tight end.

In Hobson's most recent article, he discusses the revitalization of the secondary but Allen's name is stragely missing:

Plus, they suddenly picked up a No. 1 draft pick in midseason when cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick got healthy. How deep are the Bengals in the secondary? Nate Clements, who has been playing both safety and corner, played just one snap last Sunday. The Bengals have been able to balance the age back there with the 32-year-old Clements and the 34-year Terence Newman teamed with Kirkpatrick and Adam Jones. Lewis said Monday that Clements is versatile enough to appear at any moment against any offense.

The club is dealing with a physical freak in Newman. He said back in training camp he felt like he was 26 and a half and he's playing every snap. On Sunday he played 98 percent of them.

I would not sit Newman in place of Allen but I might give Clements some time off (heck, he only played one snap last game anyway.

I hope Allen doesn't become another bad signing for a team that has gotten so many personnel moves right over the past several years.
