Allen sidelined Thursday | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He was reportedly a true game-time decision, so he evidently felt good enough in warmups. Allen still comes with a lot of risk in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Chargers WR Keenan Allen a "true game-time decision" for today's tilt with the Bears. "He was walking around well and had some optimism," Rapoport adds. ESPN's Adam Schefter, though, reports that Allen is "not optimistic." The good news for fantasy owners is that we'll get Allen's official game status around 11:30 am ET. But it's clear that he'll be operating at far less than 100% if he ends up active.

Chargers HC Anthony Lynn labeled WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Bears. "I just need to see that he can go out and play and not hurt himself in pregame," Lynn said Friday. "If he can do that, then he's going to play." The coach added that Allen's snaps will be limited if he ends up giving it a go. We're sure to get more updates between now and kickoff, but Allen is shaping up as a high-risk, moderate-reward Week 8 fantasy play.

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 is already back at practice after injuring his ankle last week. "He’s in great shape, explosive and looks really good," HC Ken Whisenhunt said on Wednesday. "In practice today, he looked good again. He rolled his ankle a little bit last week and he was back out there today. I’m really excited about Keenan." Allen won't play in the final 2 preseason games but is clearly on track to be ready for Week 1. He remains a safe pick in the 3rd round of fantasy drafts.
