Jared Allen had knee, shoulder worked on the same day

Jared Allen AP

Vikings defensive end Jared Allen went from never having surgery to having two in the same day.

According to Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com, Allen had his knee cleaned out the same day he had a torn labrum in his left shoulder repaired. The shoulder issue bothered him all year, but the knee procedure was termed minor.

Allen had said that he hadn’t had any surgeries since getting his tonsils taken out when he was 5, but the 30-year-old has now doubled that.

Allen’s still expected to be ready to participate in minicamp in June, so the work’s not alarming, for a guy who is still producing at a high level (coming off his sixth straight double-digit sack season.

    20-sack year coming up.

    Still one of the most dominating DE’s to ever put on a jersey.

    I hope he saves his money. Could be the beginning of the end.

    Jared Allen had one sack in the humiliating season ending loss to the Packers. He may need to contribute more if the Vikings are to reverse the trend of losing to the Packers twice per season – like they have done for the last 3 years.

    These surgeries will be the end of the line for his dominance as a pass rusher. he’ll be out of the league in 2-3 years

    *tripled that?

    Too bad he plays for a team with a QB that throws 20 yd hail mary’s.

    Uh oh, better start saving up for a new model. Once it starts going into the shop to get work you might as well get a new one.

    Do you think the Packers could have beat the 49ers in the divisional round had they played them at Lambeau?

    “Do you think the Packers could have beat the 49ers in the divisional round had they played them at Lambeau?”

    They already played them at Lambeau in week 1 and got whipped. I don’t think it mattered where they played the Niners – as SF had the better team.

    Do you watch football meathead? The vikings beat the packers in week 17.

    One of the toughest dudes in the NFL. We have so much talent on this team, can you imagine if we had a better QB situation?

    My bad. I sometimes forget that Viking fans don’t bother watching the playoffs.

    I heard he hurt his shoulder waving his arms before every snap trying to help the clueless home fans figure out when to cheer. Between Allen’s arm waving and the horn, Viking fans just might figure it out. Interesting side note Skol is actually Scandinavian for lame chant

    Our closet Viking fan is back! When are you going to declare your allegiance to the Vikings? Oh wait, you figure if you keep posting against them that other will believe you are TRULY against them right? hahaha.

    Oh, you mean like he did in 2009 when he personally sacked Rodgers 4.5 times at Lambeau?

    “They already played them at Lambeau in week 1 and got whipped. I don’t think it mattered where they played the Niners – as SF had the better team.”

    And the Vikings were able to beat the Niners…

    “My bad. I sometimes forget that Viking fans don’t bother watching the playoffs.”

    Oh, we watch them.

    I even remember how the Vikings were the first NFC Central/North team to beat the Packers in the playoffs at Lambeau Field.

    It may come as a shock to you, but the Vikings have more experience in the playoffs than your Packers do since 1968.

    The Packers have only made the playoffs 17 times in that period. Meanwhile the Vikings have made it 27 times.

    Why 1968 you ask? Well, it took the Packers over a decade to make the playoffs for the first time, I figured it was only fair to the the Vikings 7 years to make the playoffs for the first time.

    Its a shame I can only give one thumbs up.

    I get a kick out of Viking fans talking about playoffs. Your futility there is unprecedented.

    As far as Allen the hick is done.

    Coming from a fan of a team that went 25 full years without scoring a single TD in the playoffs of a full length NFL season, I find that very amusing.

    Yes, 25 years!

    And the first QB to lead them to a TD in the playoffs (and the recordholder for most TD’s passes in playoff history for the Packers) at the end of that time is now unappreciated by the majority of the fanbase.

    Only in Green Bay could this happen…

    Your post is pretty lame. Lets just post the standings for championships, Packers 13 vikings 0. Thats right folks no misprint it is 0.

    Jared Allen epitomizes the Viking franchise, a good player who fails to show up when the spot light is the brightest. And much like the fan base, he is not too bright but makes it up with loud, over the top gestures over any slight accomplishment.

    Viking fans love him because they consider him one of their own, he eats roadkill, wears his greasy hair like a red neck and still brushes all 4 of his teeth whether they need it or not.

    Here’s to a speedy recovery so he can’t use off season surgery as an excuse for disappearing in 2013

    —————————————–
    So if the Vikes season ending loss was “humiliating” what would you call the Packers season ending loss?

    Min – 10 Pack – 24 = difference 14 pts
    9ers – 45 Pack – 31 = difference 14 pts

    Hmmm.. Did the Packers have their backup QB starting in that game against the 9ers too?? More humiliating to lose by 14 with a backup QB then lose by 14 with your starter/savior/hall of famer/MVP/Super Bowl MVP/hero…..

    D’OK!! LMAO!

    Wrong again child like Packer fan. If you really want to count all those 9 NFL Championships before the NFL/AFL merger of 1970, then you have to come to grips the fact the Minnesota Vikings were NFL Champions in 1969 and then lost to an AFL team in the super bowl. So it would be 13-1.

    I just wanted to bring this up before one of your ilk tries to change the rules in the process to suit your tainted view like so many Packer fans do.

  31. vikesfansteve says: Mar 27, 2013 7:22 PM

    Yep the Vikings are the very last NFL Champions, now it’s Super Bowl Champions.

    Still 4 losses in SB’s and 5 NFC Championship losses since 78 stings. 12 men in the huddle!

  32. filthymcnasty1 says: Mar 27, 2013 7:46 PM

    It appears that Viking fans are still irate over the humiliating season ending loss to the Packers.

    One would think they’d get used to it.
