Jared Allen has done a lot of things in his career, but he’s never played in a Super Bowl.
So he’s not going to let a broken bone in his foot stop him from trying to get there.
According to Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review, the Panthers veteran defensive end is practicing today, as he tries to see if he’s able to play Sunday night against the Cardinals.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera has said all week Allen is doubtful, after breaking a small bone in his foot late in last week’s win over the Seahawks. And beyond that, he wants to make sure Allen can be effective, beyond just getting on the field, as pass-rushers are going to be at a premium against the Cardinals.
So how much Allen does today will be a good indication of whether he’s able to play.
The 33-year-old Allen has 136.0 career sacks, but just 2.0 of them came with the Panthers this year after coming over in trade with the Bears.
