Chargers WR Keenan Allen is officially active for tonight's game vs. the Chiefs. He should be back in his usual role after missing last week's game on the COVID list.

The Chargers have activated WR Keenan Allen off the COVID list. He missed Sunday's win over the Giants but should be ready for the Thursday night home date with the Chiefs. His return makes it tough to like Jalen Guyton or Josh Palmer as fantasy options.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley expects to get WR Keenan Allen back from the COVID list for Thursday night's game vs. the Chiefs, "barring a setback." We'll keep an eye on the situation. WRs Josh Palmer and Jalen Guyton played well in Allen's absence in the win over the Giants, but Allen's return would obviously be good news for QB Justin Herbert.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (COVID) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Giants. We'll see if he can get cleared for Thursday night's showdown with the Chiefs. We're still waiting to see if close-contact Mike Williams will come off the COVID list on Saturday and play this weekend.

The Chargers on Monday placed WR Keenan Allen on the COVID list. The details aren't yet clear, so we'll see whether Allen has a shot to make it back ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants. Make sure you set alternate plans or Week 14, though.

Update: Allen is vaccinated, according to NFL Network's Taylor Bisciotti, so there's at least a chance that he's cleared by Sunday.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. He was listed as questionable after getting in 2 limited practices this week, but we don’t expect the knee to be a major issue today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) is expected to play vs. the Vikings today. Allen got in 2 limited practices this week and is listed as questionable, but we never sensed any concern about his status. He's safe to get into Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Vikings. He was sidelined on Wednesday before putting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’re fully expecting Allen to play, but check back Sunday to make sure he’s active.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We're expecting him to play vs. the Vikings this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen missed Wednesday's practice and is on the injury report with a knee. He played 90% of the offensive snaps and appeared to come out of last week's game fine, but check back tomorrow for another update.

The Chargers have named Brandon Staley their new HC. The 38-year-old has been a fast riser, going from a LBs coach in Chicago and Denver to Rams defensive coordinator to Chargers HC in just 5 years. Staley's 2020 Rams defense was better than Wade Phillips' 2019 unit in points allowed, total yards allowed, yards per play allowed and Football Outsiders' DVOA. This at least looks like a good hire for the Chargers defense. We'll see who joins Staley to run the offense.

The Chargers have fired HC Anthony Lynn. He cost his team multiple chances to win this season with poor in-game management. Lynn finishes his 4-year run with the Chargers with a 33-31 record but went just 12-20 over the past 2 seasons. Whoever takes over this team will be working with a strong core in QB Justin Herbert, RB Austin Ekeler and WR Keenan Allen -- plus a talented defense.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen has been placed on the COVID list. He was already expected to miss Sunday's finale with his hamstring injury, but now he's definitely out for that one. Allen finishes the 2020 campaign with a 100-992-8 line. It snaps his 3-year streak of 1,100+ yards but marks his 3rd 100+ catch season among the last 4. Mike Williams, Jalen Guyton and Tyron Johnson will close out the season as the Chargers' top 3 WRs.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is not expected to play vs. the Chiefs this weekend, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. Allen has been battling this hamstring for a few weeks and has no reason to rush back for a meaningless finale. Mike Williams, Jalen Guyton and Tyron Johnson will close out the season as the Chargers' top 3 WRs.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Broncos. That leaves Mike Williams, Tyron Johnson and Jalen Guyton as QB Justin Herbert’s top 3 WRs today. L.A. is also without TE Hunter Henry.
