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. Dec 17 - 4:07 PM

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.
Dec 17 - 2:28 PM

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.
Dec 15 - 10:41 AM

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.
Dec 14 - 5:55 PM

Keenan Allen caught two passes for three yards in Sunday night's Week 14 loss to the Patriots.

Allen was shut down by Darrelle Revis. He had zero targets in first half, and didn't make his first catch until late in the third quarter. It was a step back coming off two straight 100-yard games. Allen will have another tough matchup against Broncos CB Chris Harris in Week 15.
Dec 8 - 12:34 AM

Keenan Allen caught 11 passes for 121 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's 34-33 Week 13 win at Baltimore.

After catching just one touchdown pass in the first 10 weeks, Allen now has three in his last two games. He was spectacular against the Ravens' decimated secondary, flashing rookie-year form by roasting Ladarius Webb with precision route-running for his first score and taking a pretty back-shoulder over Danny Gorrer throw from Philip Rivers for his second trip to the end zone. Allen is surging toward the mean and WR1 status, but has two very difficult matchups upcoming: Patriots Week 14 and Broncos Week 15.
Nov 30 - 4:27 PM

Keenan Allen caught six passes for 104 yards and one touchdown in the Chargers' 27-24, Week 12 win over the Rams.

Allen was targeted a game-high nine times. He got off to a slow start with 2-29 heading into halftime, but turned it up late, scoring the 29-yard game-winning touchdown on a bubble screen to the left. Before that grab, Allen turned an intermediate catch into a 35-yard catch-and-run. But he lost a fumble at the end of the play inside the red zone. It was his second lost fumble of the day after he muffed a punt earlier. The 35-yard catch was his longest of the season, while it was Allen's second 100-yard game. Allen will be a solid WR3 against the Ravens in Week 13.
Nov 23 - 7:39 PM

Keenan Allen secured 8-of-13 targets for 63 yards in the Chargers' Week 11 win over the Raiders.

Allen's TDs and yardage continue to disappoint, but he is now on pace for 88 receptions through ten games. He'll be a WR3 in PPR leagues in Week 12 against St. Louis. Allen has settled in as a borderline starter in non-PPR.
Nov 16 - 8:04 PM

Keenan Allen caught four passes for 47 yards in Week 9 against the Dolphins.

Allen was targeted nine times in the 37-0 shutout loss. Brent Grimes and Reshad Jones were making life difficult all day for the Chargers' passing offense. Allen has just one touchdown on the season with the Chargers heading into their bye week. He'll be back on the WR2 map in Week 11 against the Raiders.
Nov 2 - 4:57 PM

Keenan Allen caught 9-of-13 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

The touchdown — as you may have heard — was Allen's first of the season. Allen could have had his second 10-catch effort of the year, but committed a drop. He was also the target on one of Philip Rivers' two interceptions. Allen showed why he was so highly valued in summer drafts, putting on a clinic as a route runner against the Broncos' elite secondary. He'll enter San Diego's Week 9 trip to Miami the owner of a 43/427/1 line on 65 targets. There is WR2 hope still.
Oct 24 - 12:04 AM

The Chargers say defenses are using more press-coverage against Keenan Allen in 2014, leading to his disappointing start to the season.

"People, they aren't stupid," WRs coach Fred Graves said. "They're not just going to let him run free. They're going to take some things away." Allen has a team-high 34 catches, but has turned them into just 354 scoreless yards. His YAC per reception is down from 6.0 to 2.9 this season. Defenses are slapping a cornerback on Allen and rolling safeties to his side, leaving Philip Rivers to spread the ball around. Allen is a WR3/4 for Thursday night in Denver.
Oct 22 - 1:39 PM

Keenan Allen caught 6-of-10 targets for 58 yards in San Diego's Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

The catches, yards and targets were all Allen's second most of the season, but for the seventh time in seven games, he failed to find the end zone. It's worth noting that one of his missed targets came in the painted area, but it wasn't a performance that will have Allen's owners feeling warm and fuzzy moving forward. Philip Rivers is simply doing too good a job of spreading the ball around to his myriad weapons. Allen will be a risky WR3/4 for Thursday's game against the Broncos' tough secondary.
Oct 19 - 7:53 PM

Keenan Allen managed three catches for 27 yards on six targets in San Diego's Week 6 win over the Raiders.

Allen's biggest play was a 19-yard reception midway through the fourth quarter. If anyone was still worried about some sort of injury bothering Allen, he cooled those concerns by busting a 29-yard punt return in the fourth quarter, bringing the ball back to the Raiders' 39-yard line. Allen is playing well, but the ball is being dispersed throughout San Diego's pass-catching corps. He's a guy to buy low, as Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd will almost certainly fade, while Eddie Royal (ribs) got hurt on Sunday.
