  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Season marred by injuries

    Palmer, who left Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Chiefs early with a knee injury, tallied 38 receptions for 581 receiving yards and two touchdowns across 10 games during the 2023 season.

    When Palmer was healthy, the third-year receiver seamlessly stepped up in the absence of Mike Williams (knee) and established himself quickly as a reliable target opposite Keenan Allen for quarterback Justin Herbert. The 24-year-old had at least seven targets in four straight games prior to leaving the Week 8 contest against the Bears due to a knee sprain that drew an injured-reserve stint. With cap woes possibly impacting the return of both Allen and Williams, Palmer could see a significant role in 2024 alongside first-round pick Quentin Johnston in an offense that figures to see major changes from a coaching perspective.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Hurts knee in Week 18

    Palmer exited Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs with a knee injury.

    Prior to his departure from the contest, Palmer caught six of his 10 targets for 44 yards. With Keenan Allen (heel) already out, the Chargers' available wide receivers in Palmer's absence are Quentin Johnston, Alex Erickson, Keelan Doss and Derius Davis.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Cleared to play Week 18

    Palmer has cleared concussion protocol and will play Sunday against the Chiefs, Eric Smith of the Chargers' official site reports.

    Palmer's absence due to a concussion was limited to one game. He was a limited participant in all three of the Chargers' practices during the week, but that was enough to gain clearance for the season finale. With Keenan Allen (heel) ruled out, Palmer will be one of the top targets for Easton Stick against a Kansas City secondary that could be resting some of its top players.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Limited Wednesday

    Palmer (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Palmer sat out the Chargers' Week 17 loss to Denver with a concussion, but his ability to open Week 18 prep with a limited practice suggests he's made some incremental progress through the five-step protocol for head injuries. He'll likely need to put in a full practice by the end of the week in addition to gaining clearance from an independent neurologist in order to have a chance at playing in Sunday's season finale versus Kansas City. If he clears the protocol, Palmer could serve as the No. 1 wideout for quarterback Easton Stick, as Keenan Allen (heel) has missed the Chargers' last three games and doesn't appear to be trending toward a return in Week 18 after he was sidelined for Wednesday's practice.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Won't play against Broncos

    Palmer (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    With both Palmer and Keenan Allen (heel) unavailable, rookie Quentin Johnston, Jalen Guyton and Alex Erickson are expected to work as the top wideouts for quarterback Easton Stick in the Chargers' depleted passing attack. If Palmer's able to clear concussion protocol, he'll have one more chance to play Week 18 against the Chiefs before Los Angeles' season comes to an end.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Not practicing Thursday

    Palmer (concussion) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    Palmer also missed Wednesday's session and now has one more chance to practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos. The same goes for fellow wideout Keenan Allen (heel), who along with Palmer was spotted doing some agility work and running off to the side with trainers Thursday. If neither receiver is cleared to play Week 17, the Chargers would be left with Quentin Johnston, Alex Erickson and Jalen Guyton as their presumptive top three wideouts.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: In concussion protocol

    Palmer didn't practice Wednesday due to a concussion.

    Palmer played 61 offensive snaps and logged five catches on eight targets for 47 yards in this past Saturday's 24-22 loss to the Bills, but he was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol at some point after the game, according to Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times. The Chargers were also without Keenan Allen (heel) at Wednesday's practice, so for the time being, Quentin Johnston, Alex Erickson and Jalen Guyton are the Chargers' top healthy receivers as Sunday's game in Denver approaches.
