Cowboys release son of Hall of Famer Larry Allen at camp
OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have released offensive lineman Larry Allen Jr., the son of Hall of Fame guard Larry Allen, to make room for linebacker Justin Phillips.
The younger Allen joined his dad's former team as an undrafted free agent in May but ended up being the first cut of training camp in California, his home state. Allen played at Harvard. His father was a six-time All-Pro in 11 seasons with the Cowboys.
Phillips also signed as an undrafted free agent with Dallas out of Oklahoma State but was cut after offseason practices. Dallas needed depth at linebacker for camp with Sean Lee nursing a minor knee injury and Chris Covington slowed early by a hamstring issue.
