NFL Injury Report:
Entering the offseason, Minnesota Vikings defensive lineman
Jared Allen was expected to undergo a procedure to repair a torn labrum in his
left shoulder. He told Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN that he underwent the surgery
Allen said he waited until last week to undergo the
procedure because he wanted to wait until after he had a chance to play in the
Pro Bowl. This may sound a bit silly, but Allen played the entire season with
the injury and it’s unlikely he did any more damage to it during the Pro Bowl.
While it remains unclear how long the recovery process will
take, Allen is at least expected to be ready to open camp with the Vikings. He
doesn’t usually take part in the team’s voluntary workouts, according to
Pelissero, so it won’t change up the veteran’s routine very much.
