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.

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...

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.

Jared Allen defends former teammate Adrian Peterson’s character

Bears defensive end Jared Allen attended Bible study with Adrian Peterson during their six seasons as teammates with the Minnesota Vikings. He was reticent to judge his former teammate in light of Peterson’s indictment Sept. 12 on charges of child abuse, though he did support and defend Peterson’s character. ‘‘My focus is on the Chicago Bears, honestly, and what I’ve got to do in my life,’’ Allen said. ‘‘I’ve said it all along: I’ve got my...

Jared Allen on Adrian Peterson: 'Good people make mistakes'

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen said that while he doesn't know all the details concerning former Minnesota Vikings teammate Adrian Peterson's legal situation, he believes "good people make mistakes." Allen played alongside Peterson for six seasons in Minnesota before joining the Bears. "My focus is on the Chicago Bears, honestly, and what I've got to do with my life," Allen said when asked about Peterson. "I've said it all along: I have my beliefs and my opinions, and that's what they are, and I live my life a certain way.

Expect Jared Allen to bounce back vs. 49ers

Defensive end Jared Allen had a rather uneventful debut as a Bear. According to the scoresheet, he had one tackle in 53 snaps. And the coaches’ review didn’t do much to enhance his numbers, adding only one assisted tackle. But history suggests the Bears shouldn’t worry about their big offseason addition who received $15.5 million guaranteed. Plus, Allen, 32, feels like a teenager again. “I feel like I’m 18,” Allen said Wednesday at Halas Hall....

Jared Allen hopes to be old jeller for Bears

Lance Briggs wasn’t the only Bear to get special dispensation from coach Marc Trestman. Jared Allen only played 29 snaps in the preseason. “Coach took good care of me,” Allen said Wednesday after the Bears practiced at Halas Hall for the opener Sunday against the Bills at Soldier Field. “Obviously, I had some circumstances. My wife gave birth to our second daughter, and Coach didn’t feel it was necessary to have me come from a hospital bed to a playing...
