Allen fined; Cook demoted

November 19th, 2008 – 12:03 PM by Judd Zulgad

Jared Allen won’t be suspended by the NFL, but was fined $25,000. Allen had been fined $50,000 for two low hits on Houston quarterback Matt Schaub, then got a roughing-the-passer penalty against Aaron Rodgers of the Packers. The league called Allen in for a chit-chat yesterday, and issued the fine. And presumably a stern warning.

Also, right tackle Ryan Cook has lost his starting job to Artis Hicks.

We’ll update with details on all the news after locker room access.
