Jared Allen’s sack drought over

ATLANTA — The Bears signed defensive end Jared Allen with this situation in mind: The offense staking the Bears to a late lead, and their opponents having to play catch-up. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had to pass. A lot. “We have to take advantage of those situations,” said Allen, who notched his first sack with the Bears in the fourth quarter of their 27-13 victory Sunday at the Georgia Dome. “Everybody played off each other really well.” Allen’s sack...

Jared Allen says he isn’t sick over his lack of sacks

Defensive end Jared Allen says there is no frustration, even though he has no sacks. “Goodness, I led the team in tackles [against the Panthers],” Allen said Wednesday. “I was laughing with somebody and said, ‘Well, that whole thing about me not playing the run anymore has got to be out the window.’ I think I have a season-high tackle total already. “If I was playing bad ball, I would let you know. Coming off that Jets game, obviously, I didn’t want to...

Jared Allen, Jeremiah Ratliff return to Bears practice

Quarantined in the basement and away from his newborn, defensive end Jared Allen spent last week fighting the pneumonia that kept him out of his first game in seven years. Allen returned to practice Wednesday. He was limited but optimistic that he’d return for the game Sunday against the Panthers. Allen lost 15 pounds from his playing weight of 254 but said he added two back. “I’m more concerned about recovery time with my lungs, when I’m coming back,” he...

Jared Allen returns to practice

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Jared Allen's streak of 113 consecutive starts ended Sunday when he missed Chicago’s loss to the Green Bay Packers because of pneumonia. But the five-time Pro Bowl defensive end returned to the practice field Wednesday, saying, “Hopefully, I’ll be back up by this weekend” as the Bears prepare to face the Carolina Panthers. Allen said he felt sick during Chicago’s win over the New York Jets on Sept.

Jared Allen rejoins teammates following illness

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Veteran Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen worked out and attended meetings at Halas Hall on Monday after being inactive in Week 4 due to a reported case of pneumonia. Allen’s absence on Sunday in the Bears’ 38-17 defeat to the Green Bay Packers snapped a streak of 113 consecutive starts. The five-time Pro Bowl defensive end hadn’t missed a game since Week 2 of the 2007 regular season. “He was working out,” Bears head coach Marc Trestman said.

Bears’ pass rushers come up empty, record zero hits on Aaron Rodgers

There finally was some calf-roping, sack-dancing on display for the Bears. But this time, imitation wasn’t the sincerest form of ­flattery. It was a public reminder of what the Bears were missing on Sunday. Green Bay Packers defensive end Datone Jones’ fourth-quarter impersonation of Jared Allen’s famous sack celebration underscored a lackluster pass-rushing performance by the Bears in a 38-17 thumping by the Packers. “We’re going to do everything we can...

Jared Allen, Brandon Marshall questionable vs. Packers

It’s hard to believe defensive end Jared Allen would miss a chance to play against Aaron Rodgers — whom he sacked 151/2 times in 10 games with the Vikings. But Allen is questionable for the game Sunday against the Packers at Soldier Field with an undisclosed illness after not practicing Friday. Allen’s availability will be a game-time decision. But Willie Young and Lamarr Houston addressed Allen’s absence as if they were not expecting him to play. “This is...

Brandon Marshall, Jared Allen questionable

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears released their final injury report Friday heading into Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers with receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle) and defensive end Jared Allen (illness) listed as questionable. The club held out Marshall and Allen from Friday’s practice, and officially ruled out center Roberto Garza (ankle), left guard Matt Slauson (ankle), linebacker Shea McClellin (hand), cornerback Sherrick McManis (quadriceps) and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion).

Jared Allen facing familiar foe in search of first sack

This week, Jared Allen will watch himself chasing Packers quarterback Aaron ­Rodgers. “The best way to prepare is to watch tape of yourself going against somebody,” the Bears veteran defensive end said. He’ll like what he sees. With the Vikings, Allen recorded 16½ sacks in 13 games against the Packers. “It’s always a tough game,” he said. “It’s always fun, ­especially playing Aaron. He’s obviously a top quarterback for a reason. We’re ­going...

Jared Allen's seen lots of double teams

Observed and heard in the locker room after the Chicago Bears' 27-19 victory over the New York Jets: Defensive end Willie Young joked as Jared Allen walked to the showers about the double teams he faced against the Jets. Obviously, Allen’s the wrong player to voice that complaint to. Allen replied, “You know how many double-teams I’ve seen in my life?” Stat sheet comedy: Once public relations officials passed out the official statistics for Monday night’s game, cornerback Tim Jennings quickly thumbed through to see if his forced fumble was listed.
