Allison played in 10 games in 2016. He caught 12 balls for 202 yards, and is expected to take over a bigger role in the offense this season. The second-year wideout was a training camp star last summer after signing with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois.
Allison is missing the Packers' opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 10 at home.
