The Carolina Panthers held on for a win over the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, but they may have lost DE Jared Allen. The veteran suffered a foot injury that may cost him the rest of the season.
I'm told Panthers DE Jared Allen suffered a foot injury that will likely require surgery and end his season.— Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) January 17, 2016
However, Ian Rapoport says Allen isn't on crutches and plans on continuing to play.
#Panthers DE Jared Allen broke a small bone in his foot today, source said, and he played some of the game with it. He plans on continuing— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 17, 2016
An X-Ray is scheduled for tomorrow and that's when the Panthers should know if Allen will actually be able to play through the pain.
The team traded for Allen at the end of September in a deal with the Chicago Bears. Allen has two sacks and 27 tackles in 12 games this season.Back to the Carolina Panthers Newsfeed
