Jared Allen limited, Thomas Davis full participant for Panthers

A broken arm isn’t enough to keep Thomas Davis off the practice field, and a fricking laser beam isn’t enough to keep Jared Allen off the injury report.

In the first report of Super Bowl week, the Panthers listed Allen as being limited with a foot injury.

The veteran defensive end broke his foot in the playoff win over Seattle and missed the NFC Championship Game, but is expected to play this week after some aggressive treatment.

Meanwhile Davis was listed as a full participant in the first full practice of the week, along with fullback Mike Tolbert.

Davis had surgery to put a plate and 12 screws in his right arm the day after the NFC Championship Game, but has insisted nothing’s going to keep him off the field.

    Like in the last game, I’m convinced that Rivera is reluctant to “fix” what’s not broken. I think he prefers having a fit body at rush end, rather than Allen, who may not be able to play an entire game.

    It remains to be seen, but I won’t be shocked if Jared Allen remains on the shelf. Tough call, but if he’s limited …

    Hopefully Allen can get some snaps in the 4th quarter after Derek Anderson hands the ball off to Whitaker or CAP a few times and Nortman punts, with a nice multi-TD lead.
