Bengals' Brandon Allen (knee) active for Week 16

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Brandon Allen will play Sunday in the team's Week 16 game against the Houston Texans.

What It Means:

Head coach Zac Taylor never officially named a starter for the contest, but given Allen's recovery from a knee injury, it's expected he'll get the nod against Houston. That would mean Ryan Finley reverts to a backup role.

Our models project Allen for 246.9 passing yards, 1.4 touchdowns, 0.7 interceptions and 16.0 FanDuel points.
