Minnesota Vikings DE Jared Allen (knee, shoulder) underwent cleanup surgery on his knee Jan. 31, the same day he had left shoulder surgery, according to two NFL sources. One source said his knee injury was a 'minor' procedure, and he's expected to be ready for minicamp in June.
Huddle Up: Allen, who turns 31 in April, obviously needed the off-season tuneups and will be looking to improve on his 12-sack season of 2012 -- a far cry from his 22-sack campaign a year earlier.

Minnesota Vikings DE Jared Allen recently underwent surgery to repair the torn labrum in his left shoulder. He is expected to be ready for the start of the training camp.
Huddle Up: Allen played a good portion of the year with the injury, and it showed in somewhat declined productivity. Expect him to bounce back with two functioning shoulders next season.

Minnesota Vikings DE Jared Allen has played all season with a torn labrum in his shoulder, and though he hasn't missed a practice, the injury might be affecting the quality of his play. Allen will undergo surgery after the season on his shoulder.
Huddle Up: Allen recorded his first sack in three games against the Packers, but his play has been slightly off from its usual stellar level--and now we know why. An injured Allen is still a formidable pass rusher, but he won't be 100 percent the rest of the way.
