Miami Dolphins cornerback Will Allen has been a starter throughout his NFL career. And even though he’s coming off a serious knee injury and turning 32 in August, he doesn’t see that changing in 2010.
“I’m starting,” Allen said, per the Miami Herald. “You can put that wherever you want. I’ve started every year. I don’t expect that to change now.”
Allen suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the Dolphins’ October 25 loss to New Orleans, but he said he’ll be 100 percent before the regular season begins.
And he said he expects to start, even though he thinks the Dolphins’ starting pair of Sean Smith and Vontae Davis did well after his injury. Allen said that Smith and Davis “learned so much last year” that it should benefit the secondary as a whole in 2010.
“I hope it turns into something great,” Allen said.
