Watch Now:

Allen (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's NFC championship game against Arizona.

As a result, Kony Ealy will draw a start at DE for the Panthers on Sunday in place of Allen, with rookie Ryan Delaire also slated to be active for the contest. Meanwhile, coach Ron Rivera relayed Friday that Allen -- who logged 32 tackles and two sacks in 12 games this past season -- would have a chance to play in the Super Bowl, in the event that the Panthers are able to get past the Cardinals this Sunday.
