Panthers To Start DE Jared Allen On Sunday vs. Philadelphia

Carolina Panthers defensive end Jared Allen will make his first start with his new team after sitting out of last week's victory over Seattle with a pinched nerve in his back, according to the Charlotte Observer.

“He tried to maintain his conditioning. I don’t think the one week off is going to hurt him,” head coach Ron Rivera said. “He had a real good week of building it back up and today he just cut it loose. It was good to see.” 

Rivera said he expects Allen to play around 30-35 snaps in the game.

Carolina acquired Allen in a trade with the Chicago Bears on Sept. 28 for a sixth-round pick.
