  Panthers | Jared Allen retires    Thu Feb 18, 11:17 AM

Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen announced his retirement Thursday, Feb. 18. Allen retires with 136 career sacks, which ranks ninth in NFL history.

Footballguys view: He did it with absolute style, though clearly he was disappointed there was no sunset to ride off into. Still, it was a decidedly Allen way to retire and we wish the former Viking, Chief, Bear and Panther the best of luck.

  Panthers | Jared Allen to start Sunday    Fri Feb 5, 04:36 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen (foot) will start Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, Feb. 7, according to head coach Ron Rivera, after sitting out the NFC Championship Game.

Footballguys view: Allen has a chance to get a ring in his first Super Bowl, and late in his career. The Panthers have needed him after suffering multiple injuries at defensive end. He'll get a chance to set his sights on an especially immobile Peyton Manning.

  Panthers | Super Bowl practice report for Thursday    Thu Feb 4, 07:36 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen (foot) and LB Thomas Davis (forearm) participated fully in practice Thursday, Feb. 4.

Footballguys view: Both are playing in the Super Bowl, but they might be on limited snap counts based on these injuries. Allen may be a part-time pass-rusher for the Panthers, while Davis might get a few snaps off here and there.

  Panthers | Thomas Davis, Jared Allen on track    Thu Feb 4, 12:08 PM

Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis (forearm) and DE Jared Allen (foot) remain on track to play in Super Bowl 50 against the Denver Broncos after both practiced Wednesday, Feb. 3. Allen was limited, but the move was precautionary, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Davis was a full participant and wore a protective cast over his arm. Rivera said Davis will have his arm looked at by doctors again Friday, Feb. 5, but his full practice load was an indication he'll play.

Footballguys view: Sounds good for both guys and once you get them on the field it's going to be tough to get them out of the game. It's the Super Bowl of course.

Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen (foot) practiced Monday, Feb. 1, and said he's 100% ready to play in the Super Bowl. 'I feel great,' Allen said. 'Honestly, I feel, hopefully, I'll be a tremendous factor in this game. So, as far as physically, 100% ready to go, just preparing like normal.'

Footballguys view: We can't believe Allen is actually going to play with this severe foot injury, but hey...guys have played in the Super Bowl with a broken leg (Jack Youngblood anyone?). He'll be on the field as a part-time pass-rusher against the Broncos.

  Panthers | Jared Allen practicing Wednesday    Wed Jan 27, 11:13 AM

  Panthers | Jared Allen expects to play in SB50    Mon Jan 25, 02:23 AM

Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen (foot) said Sunday, Jan. 24, that the next two weeks will be the longest of his life, but he expects to play in Super Bowl 50 against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Feb. 7.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see if Allen can pull this off. This foot injury was originally thought to be season-ending, but with two more weeks of rest we could see the veteran pass-rusher inserted as a part-time player against the Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen (foot) will not play in the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 24, against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

Footballguys view: Nobody should be surprised by this news. Allen's foot injury is just too severe to heal in such a short time. If the Panthers make it to the Super Bowl, then perhaps Allen could suit up...but we'd even doubt that at this point.

  Panthers | Jared Allen ready to play?    Wed Jan 20, 05:24 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen (foot) needs to show head coach Ron Rivera enough to convince him that he can play in the NFC Championship against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: There are conflicting reports about Allen, but we'd be surprised if he plays against the Cardinals on Sunday. The Panthers can't afford to be stuck with three defensive ends if Allen is active and can't play, according to Rivera.

  Panthers | Jared Allen unlikely to play    Tue Jan 19, 12:32 PM

Carolina Panthers DE Jared Allen (foot) is unlikely to be able to play in the NFC Championship against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, Jan. 24, due to a fractured foot. Allen will be listed as doubtful for the game. 'For the most part, it's going to be a day-by-day (issue), and we'll see how he is by the end of the week,' head coach Ron Rivera said. 'He will be listed as doubtful. As he reacts to it, hopefully we'll know going forward.' Rivera said the team will likely wait until Friday, Jan. 22, or Saturday, Jan. 23, to make a roster move if it's needed.

Footballguys view: This just sucks. We love older players who are striving for a ring this postseason, and we're pulling for guys like Allen, Larry Fitzgerald, Steven Jackson or DeMarcus Ware in the playoffs. DE Wes Horton is an obvious option to take Allen's roster spot. DE Kony Ealy is expected to start at right end if Allen cannot play, and DE Mario Addison would also see more snaps.
