|SIU junior linebacker
|CARBONDALE - At Monday's practice, the Southern Illinois University first-team linebacking unit featured four players who have never started a game in their college careers. Not to worry, though, help is on the way.|
Junior inside linebacker Chase Allen, who started every game in 2014 and led the team with 95 tackles, should be back in the lineup soon. The Belleville, Ill. native missed spring ball with a back injury and is still not 100 percent, but he's pain-free and available for limited duty. He expects to start on Sept. 5 at Indiana.
"I'm a little bit behind," Allen admits. "I'm just studying and trying to get on the same page as my teammates."
