Safety Nate Allen Demoted; Won't Start Against Redskins

It’s no secret that the Eagles haven’t gotten much production from either safety position this season. In fact, they’ve been terrible. The combination of Kurt Coleman and Nate Allen has been nothing short of abysmal this season.

When the Eagles evaluate their roster this offseason, both safety spots will need to addressed, and if there was any thought that Nate Allen might play his way back into the mix because he was a 2010 second-round draft pick, well, you can likely dismiss that notion.

Andy Reid announced Wednesday afternoon that Special teams ace Colt Anderson will remain in the starting lineup with Coleman taking Allen’s spot. All three are expected to play, according to Reid.
