  03/25/21 - ILB Thomas AllenrSr/2022, Indiana

  Indiana junior linebacker Thomas Allen is determined to play football again, even after a career-threatening hip injury that has caused pain, doubts and a lengthy rehab process. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Allen, the son of IU head coach Tom Allen, took a step forward in his rehabilitation by jogging around the field during spring practice this week. "It feels amazing," Allen said. "This type of injury kind of humbles you, and it makes you realize how fortunate you are to play Division I sports and play football in the Big Ten. I mean you've got to take every opportunity, and you don't take anything for granted. So a crappy run on the field is better than not doing it at all, and just putting that in perspective has really helped me."

Allen suffered a dislocated hip with a posterior wall fracture, the same injury Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered in his college career at Alabama, during IU's 24-0 win over Michigan State on Nov. 14, 2020. He forced a fumble earlier in the game, but after a Michigan State player landed on his hip awkwardly to finish a run play early in the third quarter, Allen stayed down in pain. "I've had enough injuries in my career to know something was pretty seriously wrong," Allen said. "I remember screaming, knowing something was wrong, and when the doc got it finally popped back in, it hurt." - Herald Bulletin
