  • Suspension reduced for Chief's Jared Allen

    http://www.kansascity.com/news/break...ry/191073.html



    Jared Allen was planning to treat the first month of the Chiefs’ schedule as the offseason. He was going to head back to Arizona and work out with a trainer much as he did during the spring.

    Allen, a starting defensive end, will have to rethink that strategy after learning that the NFL — after hearing his appeal — reduced his season-opening suspension from four games to two.

    Allen will still miss the Sept. 9 season opener in Houston and the following Sunday’s game at Chicago. But he will now be available to play in the Sept. 23 home opener against Minnesota and, more important, the Chiefs’ first division game the following Sunday at San Diego.

    “My whole approach has changed now,” Allen said. “With the whole four weeks, I was going to head back to Arizona and train as if I was in the offseason. Four weeks is quite a long time. Two weeks is a totally different game. Most likely I’ll just stay in Kansas City and stay ready to play.

    “I’m excited about this. It changes training camp for me. It will change the way I approach preseason.”

    The reason for the reduction wasn’t clear. Allen said he hasn’t read the letter he received from the NFL, which has yet to publicly announce his suspension. Chiefs officials were unavailable Sunday.

    The suspension for violation of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy stems from Allen’s two DUI charges in Johnson County. He entered a diversion program in connection with the first charge and pleaded no contest to the second.

    Allen will not be paid for the two games he misses.

      Maybe this could help give Sam Brandon a leg to stand on.

          LOL

          I think he is a changed man though. He backed off from his stance early in the offseason when he was saying he would not report until training camp. He is in the best shape of his life and has slimmed down about 10 or 15 pounds this offseason. He looks like a linebacker out there. He never was the fastest guy but he was still a very good pass rusher. If his new slender build can add some speed he is going to be even more of a terror off the edge.

          It's a good thing Jay Cutler was a proven winner in college. Oh wait, nevermind.

                I viewed most of JA's mistakes as that of being a kid...Most of us old enough have drank and made bad decisions...so hopefully he has learned his lesson and will call a cab from here on out
