  Chargers | Week 7 injury report for LA Chargers    Fri Oct 23, 03:53 PM

Los Angeles Chargers OG Trai Turner (groin) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 7 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. OT Storm Norton (knee) also did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful. OT Bryan Bulaga (back) and WR K.J. Hill (hip) were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and are listed as questionable. RB Justin Jackson (knee) and QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) practiced in full Friday and are also listed as questionable. OT Sam Tevi (thumb, ankle) was downgraded to a limited practice Friday but removed from the injury report. WR Keenan Allen (back) and DT Linval Joseph (elbow) practiced in full Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Bulaga's return would help the pass protection, but Justin Herbert has still thrived with the right side of his line out in recent weeks. Turner is a great run blocker, but the Chargers run game should still look good vs. Jacksonville.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen has 20 receptions on 29 targets for 228 yards and a touchdown in the two games QB Justin Herbert has started.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen snares contract extension    Sat Sep 5, 02:29 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen on Saturday, Sept. 5, agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension worth $80 million, per his agent.

Footballguys view: Allen is now the second-highest paid receiver in the league per this report. The Chargers got a good one when they snared Allen in the third round of the 2013 NFL draft. He's a great route runner and a consistent performer for Fantasy GMs (and the Chargers) each season. The team has made keeping Allen a priority as they assemble a team to eventually build around rookie QB Justin Herbert.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen in elite company    Sat Jul 18, 09:26 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen is one of four receivers with at least 300 catches and 3,500 yards since the start of the 2017 season.

Footballguys view: Allen's ADP has dropped significantly from last year, but he might too talented to hold down no matter the quarterback play or situation. He's falling to the 5th round in drafts, which will test your beliefs on talent vs situation.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Allen is a little banged up at this point of the season. Watch to see if he can practice fully later in the week. He was injured last week but still played in Week 8 against the Bears. Allen was targeted 10 times even though he didn't play the usual amount of snaps. He should be fine this week provided there are no setbacks.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen posts seven receptions    Sun Oct 27, 04:30 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen ended up with seven catches for 53 yards on 10 targets in Week 8 against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: Allen was affected by his injury, mostly running shorter routes, but also got free downfield on a potential go-ahead touchdown, but dropped it. He'll be a solid WR2 next week against the Packers as long as his hamstring isn't any worse for the wear.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen a game-time decision    Sun Oct 27, 08:29 AM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) is considered a game-time decision for Week 8's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Allen is on the doubtful side of questionable. Austin Ekeler, Mike Williams, and Hunter Henry are all better plays today even if Allen is active, although his absence could hurt Philip Rivers' outlook a bit.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen officially questionable    Fri Oct 25, 06:25 PM

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Allen is good for the game against the Bears but Fantasy GMs have lowered expectations for most of the Chargers offense. We see Allen as more of a low-end WR2 or flex option this week.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen misses another practice    Fri Oct 25, 02:26 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was absent from the portion of practice open to the media Friday, Oct. 25.

Footballguys view: Allen is a game time decision and has to be considered on the doubtful side of questionable. Even if he does go, his numbers have been lackluster lately so it's easy to err on the side of sitting him. Mike Williams, Hunter Henry, and Austin Ekeler all get a possible bump in targets if Allen sits, but Philip Rivers outlook takes a hit.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen misses practice    Thu Oct 24, 05:46 PM

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 24.

Footballguys view: This is a new injury and worrisome. Allen's production was already tailing off after Hunter Henry came back. If he can't go this weekend, Mike Williams becomes a better play and Austin Ekeler could play an even more central role in the passing game.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen pulled down five balls for 48 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins.
