Bohl said Wyoming will be cautious early in week, but that he expects Allen to play Saturday in the home opener against Gardner-Webb.
Allen said he's not concerned about the soreness and was confident he'd play on Saturday.
Allen, whose profile exploded over the past year as a potential top pick in the 2018 NFL draft, struggled Saturday against Iowa's tough defense.
He threw for 174 yards on 23-of-40 passing with two fourth-quarter interceptions as Iowa beat the outmanned Cowboys at Kinnick Stadium.
The 6-foot-5 junior from Firebaugh, California, often showed the arm strength and physicality that has bolstered his professional stock and earned Allen strong reviews at the offseason Manning Passing Academy. But as a bevy of NFL scouts watched in person, he failed to connect with Wyoming receivers downfield.
