With another week of preseason action in the books, competition for roster spots continue to heat up as the first weekend of regular season action edges closer.
Below are a few former Razorbacks who stood out in week two of the preseason:
Allen entered the game in the fourth quarter and completed his first seven passes, including going 4-for-4 on his first drive, capped off by a four-yard touchdown toss. It was the only Jaguars offensive score of the game. Allen went on to finish the contest 10-of-15 for 144 yards through the air and 27 yards on the ground off three rushes, both were team highs.
Through the first two weeks of preseason action, the third-team quarterback is the only Jaguars signal caller to record a combined 15 completions, at least 200 yards through the air and multiple touchdown passes.
Brandon Allen ran a pro style offense at Arkansas. Under center. Dropback and play action.
He looks like an NFL quarterback. @Jaguars

Williams tied Joe Banyard for a team-high seven carries for 29 yards, including busting off a 13-yard rush. His totals may not jump off the page but it was still a solid outing for Williams, as he continues to fight for the number two spot behind LeSean McCoy.

Collins carried for a game-high 58 yards on 10 touches in Seattle’s 20-13 win over the Vikings on Friday night. Five of his touches came in the final drive of the game, as the Seahawks kept the ball away from Minnesota to hold on for the win. The second-year back also tied for a team-high four receptions for 35 yards.
