The Facts: Allison needs surgery to repair a core muscle injury, coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Monday, via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Diehards Line: Allison recently visited specialist Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia. Allison is expected to need four to six weeks for recovery, making him a candidate for injured reserve. He played five games this season, making 20 catches for 303 yards and two touchdowns before his injury. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown will continue to play great roles behind Davante Adams and Randal Cobb.
