Football: Keenan Allen set to run for scouts

Former Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen is scheduled to run Tuesday in his native Greensboro, N.C., with representatives from all 32 NFL teams in attendance 16 days before he’s expected to be drafted in the first round.

Allen said he probably was 85 percent recovered from his left knee injury, which he “tweaked” before the February scouting combine, but that he’d be back at full strength in a few weeks.

Allen suffered a strained posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Oct. 27 against Utah. He missed the final three games of the season, his predraft workouts at the combine and Cal’s pro day.
