Bengals release CB Jason Allen, who played only 4 games last season because of injury

The Bengals have released cornerback Jason Allen, who was injured and played in only four games during his one season with Cincinnati.

Allen signed with the Bengals as a free agent after playing six years with Miami and Houston. He missed the preseason and the first two games of the season because of an injured thigh. He played in a 38-31 win over Washington, getting a pair of tackles, then was inactive for the next nine games due in part to the thigh injury.

He also missed the final game of the regular season and a first-round playoff loss to Houston.
