Allen (knee) was seen running on the practice field Thursday, Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
As a result, Allen, who tore his ACL in Week 1, appears to be on track to return for spring practices. With the emergence of Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman, Allen should fit nicely into what figures to be a dangerous aerial attack next season. Still just 24-years-old, Allen has been a focal point of the Chargers' offense when he's been on the field, but season-ending injuries in the past two seasons will likely damper fantasy optimism until he can show he has fully returned to form.
Allen missed the final eight games of last season due to a lacerated kidney, so his torn ACL suffered during Week 1 on Sunday unfortunately adds another serious malady to his injury history. While the
Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune relays that the "early fear" is that Allen may have suffered an ACL tear Sunday against the Chiefs.
If so, Travis Benjamin would likely see added looks in the Chargers offense going forward, with the likes of Dontrelle Inman, Tyrell Williams and possibly a player not yet on the team's roster also in for added snaps.
