Anthony Allen played in all 16 games in 2012 but only had 16 carries. He's likely to make the roster due to his ability to contribute on special teams, but Baltimore has no intentions of using him on offense with elite back Ray Rice and capable backup Bernard Pierce in the fold.

2012 Game Summaries
Week 5 - Allen received one second quarter carry and had nowhere to go.
Week 10 - As the Ravens won by a comfortable margin against Oakland, Allen had some rare offensive playing time. After flashing some success in pass protection early in his second half snaps, Allen dropped his lone opportunity on offense. On a third down screen pass, Allen dropped the ball with space in front of him to make a bigger gain after the catch.
Week 17 - While Pierce had a nice dimension of shiftiness in his game, Allen was pure power. There wasnít much wiggle on Allenís runs, instead the running back simply took the ball and ran in a straight line towards where the holes were supposed to be blocked, whether they were or not. When Baltimore was able to block open holes, Allen was able to power through the hole and force through contact. The strength Allen possessed while hitting the hole was impressive, but a lot of yards were left on the field because of Allenís lack of speed, wasting some large holes. His touchdown run came on a goal line carry, as Allen was able to hit and squeeze through a tight gap his linemen opened. Allen also had a really good run on an option pitch to the left, catching the ball and breaking a tackle, keeping his pads low and running through wide open space for 20 yards.
