Allen hurt his knee on a non-contact play in punt coverage. The speedy wide receiver also tore his ACL in the 2015 Rose Bowl.
In his football career, Allen has 919 receiving yards and eight touchdowns averaging 17 yards per catch. He also shined as a hurdler at Oregon, winning first place in the 2016 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field championships in the 110-meter hurdles.
Allen went on to Rio, where he competed for the United States in the event. He barely missed out on a medal, making the final heat and finishing fifth.
