Tight end Dwayne Allen is in a walking boot nursing a turf-toe injury he sustained two weeks ago.

Though the injury is undoubtedly painful, Allen has been able to play through it and has caught 11 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown the last two weeks. It appears that as of now the toe will affect his practice performance more than his gameplay, barring any further aggravation of it. Allen has 33 receptions for 432 yards and 5 TDs on the season.

Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen hauled in two balls for 66 yards and a touchdown against Presbyterian Saturday afternoon.

No Clemson wide receiver has stepped up through two games now, and Allen should continue to benefit from this ineptitude.  He's a borderline TE1 play next weekend at Auburn.

Tight end Dwayne Allen caught three passes for 81 yards in Clemson's spring game on Saturday.  "(He) has the ability to be a superstar," coach Dabo Swinney remarked.

Clemson tight ends weren't much of a factor pre-Dabo Swinney.  But the Tigers threw the ball to the tight ends 54 times last season and with the graduation of Michael Palmer, Allen should see the bulk of the looks in 2010.

With the departure of Clemson tight end Michael Palmer (43-507), Dwayne Allen tells The Post and Courier he's ready to assume the starting role: "I'm a starter and I'm looking forward to playing."

That fact that Allen is excited about more playing time isn't really fantasy news-worthy; however the fact that Clemson loses so many pass catchers from a season ago means that Allen will have plenty of opportunities to snare passes from Kyle Parker.
