Philip Rivers believes Keenan Allen is in the midst of his "best camp."
This is Rivers' third camp with his No. 1 receiver. "I think that's not even close, just how consistent he's been," were Rivers' comments on comparing Allen's 2015 camp to his first two. All signs continue to point toward Allen bouncing back from his sluggish sophomore campaign. He's a WR2. Aug 20 - 3:15 PM

Keenan Allen is down to 206 pounds after playing last season at 212.

Allen's 2013 Combine weigh-in was 6-foot-2, 206, so he's back at that weight. In the article linked below, Allen all but confirmed rumors of a lagging work ethic contributed to his surprisingly-slow 2014 campaign. Allen changed his diet this offseason, cut weight, and has drawn praise from the coaching staff for his improved commitment level. This season, the Chargers plan to give Allen more slot snaps, in addition to his outside X receiver duties. We like Allen's chances of getting into the 85-catch range in his third NFL season.

Keenan Allen has been losing weight in an effort to "play faster."

It's just the latest indication that Allen has gotten more serious about his preparation following a down sophomore campaign. Allen's weight wasn't an obvious issue in 2014, but he certainly wasn't shaking loose from defenders the way he did as a rookie. A target monster with sure hands and excellent route-running chops, Allen is a prime bounce-back candidate for 2015.

Philip Rivers says he has seen more "focus and determination" from Keenan Allen this offseason.

We don't have any inside info, but Chargers beat writers have dropped subtle hints all offseason that Allen slacked on his work ethic in 2014, potentially playing a role in his second-year step back. Rivers believes Allen is now aware of how "difficult" it is to stay on top in the pros. Allen dipped from 71-1,046-8 as a rookie to 77-783-4 as a sophomore, looking more like an underneath possession receiver than dynamic playmaker. Allen is still a solid bet to bounce back.

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams expects Keenan Allen to see more time at slot receiver in 2015.

With Eddie Royal out of the picture after signing with the Bears, the Chargers have a hole at slot receiver. Allen dominated with over 700 combined yards after-the-catch his first two seasons. Philip Rivers got him the ball quickly, allowing Allen to get up field and break tackles using his short-area quickness. The Chargers also have Stevie Johnson capable of playing the slot, but Allen is a serious bounce-back candidate and threat for 90-plus catches in his third year.

Keenan Allen (collarbone) is inactive for Week 17 against the Chiefs.

The Chargers will go with Malcom Floyd, Eddie Royal, and Dontrelle Inman in three-wide sets. Also inactive for San Diego are RB Ryan Mathews, C Chris Watt, CB Greg Ducre, DE Damion Square, NT Ryan Carrethers, and OLB Cordarro Law.

Keenan Allen (collarbone) is listed as doubtful for Week 17.

The Chargers' three-receiver set will presumably be comprised of Malcom Floyd, Eddie Royal, and Dontrelle Inman in a must-win game at Kansas City.

Keenan Allen (collarbone) did not practice Wednesday.

Allen isn't expected to play in Week 17, but the Chargers are holding off on placing him on I.R. Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal will continue to start, with Dontrelle Inman getting time in three-wide sets.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 02:31:00 PM

Keenan Allen (collarbone) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

We don't see any way Allen is ready for Sunday's must-win finale against the Chiefs. It's possible he'll be sent to injured reserve later in the week to free up a roster spot.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 02:25:00 PM

Keenan Allen (ankle, collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the 49ers.

As expected. Seyi Ajirotutu will fill the No. 3 receiver role behind Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal. Look for Antonio Gates to see a bump in targets. Those hanging onto Allen in re-draft leagues can safely cut ties with him.

Keenan Allen (ankle, collarbone) is not practicing Wednesday.

As expected. Battling a bum ankle and a broken collarbone, we're not expecting Allen to play Saturday night against the 49ers. He's likely done for the season.

Keenan Allen says he's taking things "week by week" with his broken right collarbone.

According to the Union-Tribune San Diego, Allen is "not considered a candidate for injured reserve." He has yet to undergo surgery, and "no such procedure is currently planned." It's interesting Allen and the Chargers are apparently so optimistic about an injury that typically sidelines players for the better part of two months, but we strongly suspect he's played his final snap of the 2014-15 campaign. Allen should be formally ruled out for Saturday's game against the 49ers sometime in the next 48 hours. With Allen out, Seyi Ajirotutu will serve as the Bolts' No. 3 receiver behind Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal.

Keenan Allen has been diagnosed with a broken collarbone in addition to his ankle injury, and is likely done for the regular season.

Strangely, the Chargers have yet to formally rule Allen for Week 16, but barring a Bolts Super Bowl run, he's almost certainly played his final snap of the 2014-15 season. It appears the only reason for hope is that Allen briefly played through the injury in Week 15. It's a massive blow for the Chargers' scuffling offense, as Allen had really come on of late, catching 49 passes over his past eight games. He'll close the book on his second regular season the owner of a 77/783/4 line. Not a bad year, but a major downgrade from Allen's rookie campaign. He averaged just 10.2 yards per catch after posting a 14.7 mark in 2013. Nevertheless, Allen is only 22, and an elite route runner. He remains a strong hold as a WR2 in dynasty leagues.

Keenan Allen (ankle) left the stadium in a walking boot Sunday evening and will undergo an MRI on Monday.

Allen was forced from the Week 15 game against the Broncos in the third quarter. He tried to return a couple times before he was eventually whisked away to the locker room on a cart. The Chargers offered no updates after the loss. We'll provide an update when results of the MRI are revealed this afternoon.

Keenan Allen left Sunday's Week 15 game against the Broncos in the third quarter with an ankle injury.

Allen's legs got bent awkwardly after a first-half catch. He appeared to shake it off, but was in and out of the lineup. In the third quarter, Allen was spotted taking a cart to the locker room. He had three catches for 18 yards on eight targets before leaving.
