Jared Allen will undergo surgery to repair torn labrum

After this past Saturday’s playoff loss to the Packers, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen confirmed he’ll undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in one of his shoulders.

“This is the first time I’m ever going underneath the knife,” he said. “I had my tonsils out when I was 5 but that’s it.”

Allen still racked up 12 sacks while playing injured.  He did a great job leading the Vikings defense.
