“We went to a Taylor Swift concert together, which was awkward,” Allen said. “I thought I was at a Hannah Montana concert for a while. My wife and I were like, do you think we need to leave? There was like spirit fingers and choreographed dances. I was in the wrong place.”
Allen wasn’t joking.
“[Bevell’s] kids wanted to go,” he said. “I knew someone’s road manager. I’m a huge country music fan. When Taylor first came out, I liked her music. But I had never been to her concert. I was assuming it was going to be a normal concert. It was a like tween concert. I’m like, what is going on?”
CHANGING PLANS? Guion out; K-Will at nose again?
Frazier said early in the week that veteran three-technique defensive tackle Kevin Williams wouldn’t start on the nose. But that was based on Frazier’s belief that starting nose tackle Letroy Guion would return after missing a game because of chest and knee injuries. Well, Guion was listed as out on Friday. And backup nose tackle Fred Evans, who has missed the past two games, was listed as questionable because of a knee injury.
“We’ll have to rethink that,” Frazier said of Williams starting on the nose.
Williams started there last week against the Redskins and had 2 ½ sacks in his best game in years. Whether or not he starts there, he’ll still get some reps at nose on Sunday.
NO WORRIES: Peterson OK, Simpson to play
Running back Adrian Peterson, who has a groin injury, was held out of practice for the second consecutive day on Friday. But he’s listed as probable.
“No concerns,” Frazier said.
“It’s more managing him. Not wanting to overextend him.”
Meanwhile, in Seattle, Harvin also is listed as probable. He has yet to make his Seahawks debut because of hip surgery.
“I won’t say what I can and can’t do,” Harvin said. “I would just say it would be crazy for me to think I can go out there and play the amount of plays I was able to play before. I’m able to do some of the things, but it’s still all day-to-day.”
As far as being rusty, Harvin said: “I’m not worrying about it. It’s to be expected. I haven’t played a game in a year. ... But I have a lot of confidence in this coaching staff getting me ready to play.”
