Keenan Allen Injury Updates

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) did not practice on Wednesday. He tried to battle through this injury last Thursday night but was limited to 36% of the snaps and 3 targets. Allen will be tough to trust in Week 16 fantasy lineups if he doesn't do more in practice over the next 2 days.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Chargers are "concerned" WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) won't be able to play vs. the Raiders tonight. Schefter adds that Allen is "likely to be limited" if he does suit up. We'll get the Chargers' inactives around 7 pm ET tonight. Allen will obviously come with a lower ceiling and floor if he ends up playing. WRs Tyron Johnson and Jalen Guyton figure to get more playing time with Allen banged up and Mike Williams not expected to play. TE Hunter Henry and RB Austin Ekeler should also get target boosts. Downgrade QB Justin Herbert with these WR injuries.

The Chargers estimated multiple key starters as missing practice on their Monday injury report, ahead of Thursday night's game against the Raiders. WRs Keenan Allen and Mike Williams look like the 2 biggest to watch. Williams made it through just 2 snaps in Sunday's win over the Falcons before succumbing to a back injury. He looks unlikely to play Week 15. Allen left late in that contest with what has been deemed hamstring "soreness," according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. We'll see about Allen's progress over the next couple of days. The Chargers also listed Austin Ekeler (quad) and Hunter Henry (hip) as non-participants on Monday's practice estimate. We'll certainly keep an eye on them as well, but both saw their usual playing time vs. Atlanta. It doesn't seem like there's real concern for either.

The Chargers have added WR Keenan Allen to the injury report and list him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders with an illness, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll keep our fingers crossed for some indication on his status before the early games kick off, but you might need to wait until the late-game inactives come out -- around 2:30 ET for the Chargers' 4:05 p.m. start.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (back) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but a full-go on Friday. Allen is a legit WR1 in this weekend’s plum matchup vs. the Jaguars.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen was knocked out in the 1st half of Monday night's game against the Saints with a back injury. He was shown getting stretched out on the sidelines by trainers but was never able to return. HC Anthony Lynn said afterward that Allen was dealing with back spasms. He gets a well-timed Week 6 bye. We'll see if Allen is ready to roll come Week 7.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Bears. He didn't practice on Thursday or Friday after not being on the injury report at all on Wednesday. Allen appears to be in real danger of missing Sunday's game. We'll look for updates on his availability throughout the weekend and will get his official game status by noon ET on Sunday. Allen's absence would leave Mike Williams as Los Angeles' clear #1 WR and would also likely push more targets toward TE Hunter Henry and RBs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen did not practice on Thursday and is listed on the injury report with a hamstring. He wasn't on the injury report at all on Wednesday. We don't have any other details on the situation. It's possible this was more of a rest day for Allen, but it's more likely that he's dealing with a legitimate injury. We'll know more by Friday night.
