NFL suspends, fines Chiefs DE Allen for arrests

NEW YORK (July 16, 2007) -- Kansas City defensive end Jared Allen has been suspended by the NFL for the first two games of the 2007 season and fined an additional game check following two DUI arrests

Allen told the Kansas City Star in April he had been suspended for four games. At that time, the NFL declined comment because the case was under appeal.

The league announced the two-game suspension today.

The 25-year-old Allen, second on the Chiefs last season with 7½ sacks, entered a diversion program in connection with the first charge and pleaded no contest to the second.
