Jared Allen’s foot is fine, Panthers gave him some rest

Although Panthers defensive end Jared Allen was limited in practice today with a foot injury, he’s doing just fine and should be full-speed for Super Bowl 50.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said designating Allen as limited in practice was just an opportunity to give him some time off, and not an issue of a setback with his foot.

“Jared’s was really about rest,” Rivera told pool reporter Jarrett Bell. “He’s been going full-blast since we started, and the doctors wanted to just make sure. So he earned the rest.”

Other than Allen, every player was a full participant in the Panthers’ 75-minute practice today at San Jose State. Carolina is healthy heading into the Super Bowl.

    Kinda get the feeling the panthers don’t want him to play because they realized he isn’t any good anymore and his backups are better

    I’m so excited to hear this ne…actually, I lost interest.

    Smart. The Panthers defensive front will end up being the difference in the game. A well-rested Allen, able to rotate in, will help.

    Man I love this team. All the focus this week seems to be on Cam this week, and it’s well deserved, but the cast here is phenomenal, amazing, and ready to rock. Go Panthers!

    Left him out of the championship game for rest ???

    Hope that true. I want Allen to play, but only if he can contribute 100%. Occupying a roster spot for sentimental reasons, can come back to bite you, if a rush end is left home.

    I’m afraid of a weight-bearing injury, but I have to trust Rivera, so far he’s played his hand perfectly.

    Denver fans talk about how much their D is going to get after a highly mobile Cam Newton, they better worry about how much the Panthers will get after their less-than-mobile QB.

    L-U-K-E… he gon’ be spyin’ on Big Bro Manning all four quarters lol Dey gon’ force Big Bro to throw beyond 10 yards, and y’all know that Big Bro ain’t got “…faster than a speeding bullet…” velocity on his throws like Superman aka AceBoogie aka . . .

    Can’t help but think the panthers would rather see his back up take the field
