Jared Allen misses practice with groin injury

AP

Vikings defensive end Jared Allen has concerns about getting to Titans quarterback Matthew Hasselbeck, given his ability to get rid of the ball quickly.  Making it even harder for Allen to get to Hasselbeck on Sunday could be a groin injury that hampered his ability to practice on Wednesday.

Allen didn’t participate, along with safety Mistral Raymond (ankle), receiver Michael Jenkins (rib), and safety Andrew Sendejo (ankle).

Hasselbeck is a huge threat.  I’ve played against him back when he was in Seattle and . . . I don’t think there is a quarterback who gets rid of the ball as fast as him,’’ Allen said Wednesday, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.  “Maybe Peyton [Manning]?  Maybe he’s second to Peyton.”

Limited in practice was the guy the Vikings hope will be as good as Hasselbeck or Manning.  Quarterback Christian Ponder has a knee injury.  Also limited were cornerback Antoine Winfield (knee), cornerback Marcus Sherels (quadricep), guard Charlie Johnson (back), and linebacker Erin Henderson (concussion).

The Vikings will try to climb to 4-1 on Sunday against the Titans.

  1. Jared who? He’s disappeared this season.

    It’s a shame that he’s on such a bad team. Sure, they’re in first now, but no one that lives outside of their parents basement in Minnesota thinks they’ll end up any higher than third in the division.

    Wait, who is in third right now? Ah right, the mighty packers with that amazing offense and stellar defense. Everyone already sees that the sun has set on the packers.

  3. Allen isn’t playing at a high level right now. Perhaps he will be fresher toward the end of the season when the packers and bears games come around.

  4. Well if it isn’t our cousin-lovin’ friend from WI. Hey thetokyosandblaster!

    You had the Vikes finishing dead last in the NFC North at the begining of the season. Now it’s third? Can’t wait to see where you rank’em next month.

  5. Injury report games at thier finest! If anybody in thier right mind thinks that Allen won’t play is fooling them selfs!! And as to where the Vikes finish let me just say this, The longer Vikes keep winning, the harder thell be to beat later on CONFIDENCE is everything!!

  6. Hey Tokyosandblaster…..only people that live in their parents basements have enough time to troll every post about the team that they hate so they can drop some weak comment that screams pathetic. I think you’ve told us alot about you today……your mother is proud…..and fixing your plate for dinner so get going champ!

    Man, I swear you comment negative on every post. Please don’t comment on here. Allen may not have the pace for sacks he had last year, but he is consistently getting pressure on the QB, which is very important. The defense has vastly improved from last year and the offense is not turning the ball over… If the Vikes keep it up, Leslie could be looking at Coach of the Year honors.

    And apparently you live on this website too. ha

  10. My impression of the Packer version of a Viking troll:

    Oh, poor Geraldine Allen is already making excuses. Just take some midol and shut up.

    Actually, my mom died 15 years ago of ovarian cancer.

    You seem like a really cool person!

    Just repaying the favor for Contra, thepvyharvin, kathykathy, thankheavenfornumberseven, conormcleod, barroomhero, gtodriver, and several others who ALWAYS post on Packers entries.

    You have learned a lot about me. I have a spine. I don’t let trolling go by without a little trolling in return.

    “Jeez. Why even hold a practice. Sounds like nobody is participating.”

    Sounds like training camp. Anyway, every year some pretender starts out hot for a few weeks and falls off a cliff. This year it’s the Vikings. At least they won’t be mathematically eliminated by Halloween this year.

  13. Like JA gives a crap what the rubes say? Not! Don’t care if he’s not the king of sack hill. Just keep the pressure on! Everyone! Do your job! SKOL VIKES!!!e

    Well, I am sorry to hear about your mother. My mother had the same thing, but she got hers out in time. My condolences, I don’t like thinking about not having her around to talk to.

    That being said…..she died 15 years ago. that means you are not some obnoxious little kid or alcoholic college twit, you are (presumably) an adult. And yet here you are….

    So there are idiots who troll Packers posts. I don’t know them, so I can’t do anything about them. All I can control is what I post. I could choose to take out my irritation at people like you by polluting every Packers thread with insipid nonsense, but I get absolutely no satisfaction from that. To be perfectly honest, I don’t even read them unless there is nothing going on on the Vikings threads. I have better things to do with my life than spend hours a day on here.

    Now, I am going to go watch a little game film of my son’s last football game with him, read a story to my daughter, and then go to bed with my wife and get ready for tomorrow. What are you going to do?

  15. @thetokyosandblaster mommy let you out of the basement. I’ll have a talk with her tonight

  16. Doesn’t really seem the majority of these comments are actually about football, just personal attacks. Jared Allen has a groin injury… may or may not play. He and Robison have had enough of an impact to rattle QB’s to let inside pressure from Linebackers, Safeties, Williams, Everson Griffen and Letroy Guion get after it. He’s an impact player. Bicker on…

  17. Allen doesn’t have to lead the league in sacks. This year the the whole line will have a bunch of sacks ,presures and hurries! Team effort!! Keep the pedal down Vikes!!

  18. @barroomhero, you’re another one! Thanks for proving my point!

    Also, how does that Vikings Lombardi trophy look?

    I’m actually a super nice guy. Lots of friends in Minnesota, and friendly wagers for each game that I’ve never welched on since we started 10 years ago.

    Quite honestly, I just want a few of you normal fans to post that “Contra, ConorMcLeod, KathyKathy, GTODriver, Barroom Hero, and thankheavenfornumberseven are idiots, and you wish they weren’t vikings fans,” and I’ll gladly stop. 🙂

  20. This thetokyosandblaster who is CONSTANTLY trolling on Vikings threads can’t possibly be the same one that rips Viking fans for commenting on Packers threads. Because that one claims the only reason they do so is because they are jealous of the Packers.

    Unless of course tokyo is jealous of the Vikings…

  21. @ thetokyosandblaster

    You do realize Packer fans have been trolling on Viking stories for years now. Most leave idiotic statements such as yours.

    In fact there was a time not so long ago when a Packer story might have 30-50 comments posted; with only about 25-30% from Viking fans. On the other hand, a Viking story would have over 100 comments; with over 50% consisting of Packer fans hurling insults and bragging. ( I know because it was what caused me to start commenting on stories; mostly responding to comments by Packer fans.)

    So most of the trolling you see from Viking fans is just retaliation for the dim-witted, classless drivel posted by Packer fans on Vikings threads.

    And who is to say that these people aren’t super nice, and only turned to trolling Packer posts because they became tired of the trolling of Packer fans like Carl, pack13queens0, and yourself. Where does it begin and where does it end?
