Allen (shoulder) will play Sunday against Denver, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.
After being added to the Chargers' injury report as a limited practice participant Thursday, Allen was unable to practice Friday. While this report is encouraging, he's still listed as questionable on the official injury report and fantasy owners will want to check his status before the 4:25 pm ET kickoff.
Allen (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
After being added to the Chargers' injury report as a limited practice participant Thursday, Allen was unable to practice Friday, thus clouding his status for Sunday's 4:25 p.m. EDT home tilt. According to Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site, Los Angeles coach Anthony Lynn said he's "hopeful" Allen can play this week, but if the team's top wideout is out or limited at all Sunday, Mike Williams could see some added work in his second game with the team. Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin, who were included in the starting lineup with Allen in the Chargers' Week 6 matchup with the Raiders, could also be in store for some increased targets in that scenario.
Allen (shoulder) was limited at Thursday's practice.
Allen was added to the Chargers' injury report Thursday, so his status will be worth tracking as Sunday's game against the Broncos approaches. Through six games, the 25-year-old wideout has hauled in a team-high 33 passes on 60 targets for 446 yards and a TD.
Allen snagged five of his nine targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.
Allen was surprisingly kept in check during the Chargers' furious fourth-quarter rally, seeing just one target across the team's final three drives. Still, Allen led all Chargers wideouts in both targets and receiving yards, as the addition of rookie wide receiver Mike Williams predictably cut into the snap counts of Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin, although not by much. The 25-year-old Allen faces a difficult matchup next week against the Broncos, although it's worth mentioning Allen did catch his only touchdown of the season in Denver in Week 1.
Allen brought in four of 12 targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Giants.
The final line wasn't efficient, but Allen did enough to lead the Chargers in receiving yards. Quarterback Philip Rivers looked his way more than anyone else's, including on a couple of end-zone misfires. Allen has encouragingly seen double-digit targets in all but one game thus far this season, and he already has a pair of 100-yard efforts under his belt. He's alleviated any concerns about his surgically repaired knee in the process, making him a top-tier option in PPR formats once again. He'll look to continue producing against the Raiders in a Week 6 road showdown.
