Keenan Allen (lacerated kidney) will miss the rest of the season but is expected to make a full recovery, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Allen took a hard fall while making an acrobatic touchdown catch during Sunday's loss to the Ravens. He was initially said to be dealing with back spasms, but it was later revealed that his kidney is the real issue. He then had a minor procedure to stop the internal bleeding, and while it fortunately seems that the problem was successfully addressed, Allen is still expected to miss the rest of the season. His absence will leave many more targets for his teammates, with fellow wideouts Malcom Floyd, Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman most likely to take on the workload. Allen was on pace for a 134-1,450-8 receiving line, despite missing significant parts of two games.
Chargers wide receiver Keenan Keenan Allen (kidney) may miss the rest of the season, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Allen hasn't undergone surgery on his kidney, but he did have some type of non-surgical procedure. The San Diego Chargers already made it clear that their top wideout will miss some time, following an early exit from Sunday's game against the Ravens. Owners will likely want to hold on to Allen until there's something more definitive, but it does make sense to prepare for the possibility that he won't be back this season.
According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Keenan Allen should be considered out indefinitely.
In the aftermath of Sunday's loss at Baltimore, the San Diego Chargers revealed that Allen suffered a kidney injury that has forced his admittance to a San Diego hospital as symptoms grew worse overnight. Head coach Mike McCoy has relayed that Allen will "miss some time. I'm not going to put a timetable on it as you guys know, and I don't have enough information at this point in time, either." As the week unfolds, Allen's situation could receive some clarity, but there's no telling when he may be able to return from the ailment.
Coach Mike McCoy relayed Monday that Keenan Allen suffered a kidney injury Sunday against the Ravens and will miss some time.
While McCoy did not initially specify the amount of time that Allen is slated to miss, we'll operate under the assumption that the wideout is likely to miss next Monday's game against the Bears. Assuming that's the case, Malcom Floyd, Stevie Johnson and perhaps Dontrelle Inman are candidates to see added looks in the San Diego Chargers ' Week 9 offense.
Keenan Allen missed the second half of Sunday's game against the Ravens with back spasms, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Prior to his exit from the contest, Allen managed five catches for 35 yards and a TD, with the wideout's Week 9 status now worth monitoring as next Monday's game against the Bears approaches.
