Taking Allen’s spot on the roster will be linebacker Freddie Bishop. who has spent all of this season on Gang Green’s practice squad following an unspectacular pre-season.
A project pass rusher out of Western Michigan who had 11 sacks as a member of the Calgary Stampeders last season, Bishop may find himself being used as a situational rusher in the coming weeks.
