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.
