Thomas Davis and Jared Allen Both on Track to Play in Super Bowl 50

Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis and defensive end Jared Allen remain on track to play in Super Bowl 50, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

Allen was limited in Wednesday’s practice with a broken right foot, according to the practice report released by pool reporter Jarrett Bell of USA Today, the same injury that kept him out of the NFC Championship Game.

But according to coach Ron Rivera, the move was precautionary.

“Jared’s was really about rest,” Rivera said. “He’s been going full blast since we started, and the doctors wanted to just make sure. So he earned the rest.”

Davis, who suffered a broken forearm in the NFC title game, was a full participant Wednesday. He wore a protective cast over the injury, which required a metal plate with about a dozen screws.

Rivera said Davis will have his arm examined by doctors again on Friday, but the full practice load was a clear indication he will be ready for Sunday.

“When the doctors say he’s 100 percent, I’ll go with it,” Rivera said.
