EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen will not be suspended for a spate of late hits.
Coach Brad Childress said he was told by the NFL that Allen will be fined $25,000, but not punished further. Allen was summoned to the league office Tuesday to talk about his play. Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier went with him.
Allen was fined $50,000 for two late hits earlier this month on Houston quarterback Matt Schaub, one that injured his knee. The following week against Green Bay, Allen was called for roughing the passer after knocking down Aaron Rodgers
The NFL has been cracking down on the rough stuff this season more than ever. Childress defended his player, arguing that the speed at which Allen rushes makes it difficult to stop in time.
