Panthers rule out Jared Allen

Carolina Panthers defensive end Jared Allen has been ruled out for Sunday's NFC championships due to a broken foot. The Panthers hope to have Allen available for the Super Bowl if they advance. Allen wanted to play and is upset about coach Ron Rivera's decision. Kony Ealy gets the start. "Not happy, plain and simple," Allen said. "I'm ready to rock. Coach's decision, gotta live with it."
