Jared Allen dealing with foot injury

The Panthers did not emerge from their 31-24 victory over the Seahawks unscathed.

Defensive end Jared Allen suffered a foot injury during the game that could impact his availability for the NFC title game and beyond, should there be a beyond for the Panthers this season.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Allen broke a small bone in his foot during the game and was able to play on it for a portion of the victory. Rapoport reports he’s going to continue to try to play through the injury, although Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports that Allen may need surgery that would end his season.

Allen was acquired in a trade with the Bears for a sixth-round pick during the season and had 27 tackles and two sacks in 12 appearances with the Panthers.

    Maybe Cam can steal some crutches from somebody.

    That’s a shame. Love Jared Allen since his days with my Vikings! I was so happy when he went from the Bears to the Panthers because it meant I could cheer for him again (really can’t stand the Bears!), and I really like the Panthers! I hope this isn’t too serious. Good luck, Jared. Speedy recovery, big guy!

    soldierofhalas33: How many years since the Bears made the playoffs??? LOVE KNOWING WE HAVE THE NFC NORTH!!!! And what do you have?? The #11 draft pick, I think?? Have fun with that! Why are you on this site? Shame on you! If you are sending well wishes to Jared, you really have no business here, do you???

    How did the Bears do in the playoffs?

    Jared has single-handly brought a contingent of Vikes fans to cheer for the Panthers, thanks for putting down the dirty birds!

  8. screamingsheep69 says: Jan 17, 2016 6:53 PM

    Been quite the cheerleader on the field. Just wish those defensive ends could get the quarterback. The tackles do great, and the ends hold their own on the run, but no sacks coming from the outside at all.

    This guy is stealing money. Washed up. Retire already.

    One my favorite players get well soon. Great guy, very positive.

    It’s nice to see Jared finally playing on a contender after all those wasted seasons toiling away in MN.

  13. abjr says: Jan 17, 2016 7:47 PM

    Damn. As a Bears fan I always recognized how good he was in Minnesota and was happy when we got him. While it didn’t work out here, I appreciated how professional everyone was with his departure this year as he really didn’t fit in with the new DC scheme.

    He may still get a ring with the Panthers, but it sucks that it seems likely he won’t be on the field to get it. All the best to him!

    A small broken bone in the foot wouldn’t have stopped Jack Youngblood from playing in the NFC Championship and Super Bowl. Youngblood played with a broken leg in both games. Old school baby. Time to man up Jared.

  15. cougar69rt03 says: Jan 17, 2016 8:08 PM

    He will suit up for the game . Jared is a player of another time . Page, Eller and Marshal !

    This comment is a prime example of why the Bears will always be the main rival of the Packers and vice versa.

    It’s almost comical how much Vikings fans want to be included in such a historic rivalry.

    “WE WON THE NORTH!” – yeah, you lost in the first round…but enjoy that sweet ‘NFC North’ hat, son.

    You are not, and will never be, the rival of the Packers. You, your fans, and team will always be the red-headed step child.

  18. housemusic1200 says: Jan 17, 2016 8:33 PM

    Hey jazsrt, how’s that first round receiver working out for ya? You guys had your chance solidify the rivalry with Green Bay….. Remember the NFC Championship game at Soldier Field? You little QB couldn’t even play through the pain, and your team got owned…in the playoffs…..at home! Yikes, that’s weak. Keep telling yourself that the Bears are the true rival with Green Bay. Aren’t you guys in year 5 of “rebuilding”?

  19. teddysgloves says: Jan 17, 2016 8:59 PM

    Bears fans may be the true rivals of Packer fans, but the team in Chicago has not been relevant in a long time.

  20. 1969nflchampionskansascitychiefs says: Jan 17, 2016 9:06 PM

    The Vikings may have won the North, but they have done that many many times and still have no Championships.

    Packers have 13 Championships

    Bears have 9 Championships

    Lions have 4 Championships

    Vikings have nada, nothing, zip, ZERO

    The Vikings have ZERO Championships

    Raging on the Bears because you finally beat them and finished ahead of them after 20 years isn’t making you look strong.

    ZERO.

    Yes, I do remember that game….it was pretty painful to see…however The Bears made it to the nfc CHAMPIONSHIP game…not the first round of the playoffs.

    And our kicker didn’t shank a chip shot field goal.

    You keep Teddy, We’ll stick with Jay…i’m pretty sure we’ll have the last laugh.

    (And by the way…the Vikings have had a top 13 pick for the past 5 years…of which one was a first round pick on Ponder…so yeah, I wouldn’t talk smack about drafting.)

    The Bears and Packers are the foundation of the NFL…They started the league.

    The Vikings are the joke…the clown…the …well, the Vikings….that’s sad enough in itself.

    Enjoy your NFC North crown…it’s the only thing you have going for you… and your pathetic team.

  23. ninjapleazee says: Jan 17, 2016 9:37 PM

    Speaking of 1st rounders……. did trae wayne make it off special teams yet?

    “Packers have 13 Championships.”

    Yea those Packers were really something back before electricity.

    Back on topic, I hope Jared is able to play out the year. He’s a special player and deserves a ring.

  25. filthymcnasty3 says: Jan 17, 2016 9:48 PM

    I think Jared deserves a community service award for teaching Viking fans to embrace the suck. That was pretty funny.

    You see housemusic1200? This is why the Packers/Bears rivalry is, and always will be the best in the NFL.

    Mutual respect is what we have for each others team…not the sad and pathetic excuse for ‘smack-talking’ that you do.

    We do appreciate the laugh, though…Congrats on your NFC North championship.

    He is to see Dr. Anderson here in Charlotte. He will get him patched up to go and have surgery in the off season IMO. If you haven’t heard of Dr. Anderson he is the doctor who has set the standard in Knee and Ankle repairs like ACL’s MCL’s etc.

    So I expect Allen back, but he might be in a back up role if needed. We still have Ryan Delaire and Wes Horton. so still not to worried.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    That’s where you and all your pointy-headed little friends are sorely mistaken. The Bears are now, always have been, and always will be, 100% relevant to the Packers and Packer fans everywhere. They may not be relevant to you, but I’m pretty sure they don’t care.

    If the NFL lost their minds entirely and tried to move the Bears out of this division, Packer fans would join in with the Bear fans and storm the NFL offices with pitchforks and torches. On the other hand, if the NFL wanted to move your beloveds, nary a finger would we lift.

    “Back on topic, I hope Jared is able to play out the year. He’s a special player and deserves a ring.”

    Amen. It’s kind of amazing that even a post about a potential season-ending of a player most everyone respects turns into another crazy kerfuffle!

  30. jazsrt says: Jan 17, 2016 10:20 PM

    Well said, The Almighty Cabbage.

    See you next season – and best of luck to your team.

    (Rick Spielman The Magician can come too…he’s the only knowledgeable /funny/educated Vikings fan on PFT)

  31. The Almighty Cabbage says: Jan 17, 2016 11:14 PM

    Thanks, jazsrt. It just boggles the mind how these purples cannot grasp this simple fact. It’s like denial, on top of delusion, served up with a big old side of insanity.

    If Zygi Wilf and Martha Ford were smart, they’d be doing all they possibly could to fire up a Lions/Vikings rivalry. I mean no disrespect to the Lions or their fans by that and I’d pretty much be willing to bet that the Lions’ fan base knows it.

    You never see Lion fans puffing themselves up trying to tell us how they’re the Packers’ or the Bears’ big rivals. There’s a bit of a rivalry there by way of being in the same division, and the Lions having been around since long before the Vikings’ longboat limped into existence.

    Even at that, the Lions’ fans seem to understand how the Bears/Packers rivalry works. It’s not that the Lions aren’t worthy, mind you. They’re plenty worthy, but the position has been filled, and for a very long time.

    If I had to rank the Packers’ divisional rivalries, it would of course be the Bears first and foremost, which should come as no surprise to anybody. Next would be the Lions, who share 85+ years of history with the Pack and the Bears; and, they’ve been the undisputed World Champions a few times.

  32. jazsrt says: Jan 17, 2016 11:48 PM

    Agreed, The Almighty Cabbage.

    Aside from the few trolls here, the Lions fan base is one that I genuinely respect…they’re passionate to no end, win or lose…much like my Bears this (and the past two) seasons.

    However, the Lions fans’ know that the NFC North always runs through Green Bay or Chicago…any other variant is a fallacy…a myth…a fluke…something that will never…ever…change.

    Best of luck to the Lions fans reading this post…I believe your team is moving in the right direction now that the GM you had took a hike..

    See you next August.

    Panthers and Jared, I truly am sorry that this has become a forum for ridiculous Bear and Packer fans to “air out” their frustrations. The Bears, on one hand, are obviously upset that they can’t get ANYTHING going NO MATTER what they do, the Packers, well, you know, losing every home game to their division rivals this year TRULY had to STING (especially that LAST ONE for the NORTH) but this is about Jared hopefully being well enough to play throughout the remainder of your season. I LOVE the guy and WISH him only the very best! PLEASE get to the SUPER BOWL guys!!! I will be rooting for you!!!

  34. jimmysee says: Jan 18, 2016 6:05 AM

    We’re very happy for Jared after suffering a career with the abysmal Vikings to have a shot in the playoffs.

    It’s his reward for all the years of pain and suffering.

    Go Jared! Go Panthers!

  35. punkyqb says: Jan 18, 2016 6:34 AM

    What a fitting end for the Vikequeens, a loss at home because the child beater fumbler couldn’t produce when needed. Then the shank to the left.

  36. jgedgar70 says: Jan 18, 2016 9:55 AM

    I hate how casual fans get stuck on sacks as the only measure of a defensive player. Allen was playing well yesterday. One play, he diagnosed Wilson getting ready to throw a screen pass over his head, so he dropped to cover the targeted receiver, so Wilson turned around… and got a face-full of Kaawan Short, who got the sack.

    Allen doesn’t have a lot of sacks with us, but he’s brought experience and stability to our crop of DEs who have dealt with a number of injuries this year. Hopefully this injury is minor and he’ll be good to go for Arizona.

    Packers have aluminum benches in Lambow field ah haha

  38. vikingforlife says: Jan 19, 2016 9:54 AM

    Good Luck Jared, and Panthers!!
    Just one more thing you Bear and Packer trolls who have unfortunately made this about you (go figure), so since you are both so irrelevant now, I may not get the chance to write this again for quite some time: Bears, it must be tough to watch your fabulous new coach was released at just the right time by the Broncos, huh??? Kubiak seems to be making ALL the right decisions while Fox, well, not so much. And Packers, should’ve went for 2, huh??? Again, Go Panthers!!!!! The Vikings are on the rise for a VERY long time now!! Zimmer is GREAT and all of you know it!
