Chargers placed WR Keenan Allen on injured reserve with a torn right ACL, ending his season.

Devastating, though not surprising. If there's good news, it's that Allen's other ligaments are reportedly unharmed. Allen is still only 24, but has seen his games played drop in three straight seasons, going from 15 to 14 to eight to one. He's now suffered severe injuries to both knees. He'll be a major durability question mark for his 2017 return. In his wake, Travis Benjamin takes over as the No. 1 receiver. Tyrell Williams and Dontrelle Inman will pick up the remaining pieces. A veteran will likely be signed.

Alex Marvez of The Sporting News reports Keenan Allen suffered a torn right ACL Sunday in Week 1 against the Chiefs.

That's what we were afraid of when Allen went down with a non-contact injury late in the first half. This injury will sideline him for all of 2016. It's a shame that Allen is losing another season to injury in his prime. The 24-year-old is an immense talent and a highly productive fantasy receiver when healthy. Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman figure to see more targets in his absence. Danny Woodhead and Antonio Gates are also in for bigger workloads.

Keenan Allen was carted off with a right knee injury in Sunday's Week 1 game against the Chiefs and will not return.

Allen exited with only a couple minutes left in the second quarter. He was doubled over in pain and appeared to be in tears as he was carted off. It was a non-contact injury and those never turn out well. Allen caught six of seven passes for 63 yards before his departure. He was putting on a clinic against Chiefs All-Pro corner Marcus Peters. This would be an absolutely devastating loss for the Chargers. Allen is no stranger to getting hurt, coming off a lacerated kidney that cost him the final eight games of last season.

Keenan Allen reportedly "looks faster" this season.

Allen fell to the third round in 2013 due to his 4.71 speed. He struggled with conditioning early in his career, but has been in good shape the last two seasons. Already one of the best route runners in the league, adding more speed to his game would take Allen to the next level. Allen is a strong bet to post career highs if he can stay healthy for a full season.
Sep 10 - 3:32 PM

Keenan Allen caught four passes for 67 yards across three preseason games.

Allen's stats are completely irrelevant since both he and Philip Rivers barely played, but are solid all the same. An absolute target vacuum who was having a career year before getting hurt in 2015, Allen is on the WR1/2 borderline for an offense that's always one of the most pass happy in football.
Aug 28 - 3:05 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Keenan Allen received $20 million fully guaranteed on his four-year extension.

The deal has a four-year, $45 million base value and can be worth as much as $49 million. Allen received a $9.5 million signing bonus. Only 24, Allen will have the opportunity to hit the market for another payday before he turns 30.
Jun 11 - 12:17 PM

Chargers signed WR Keenan Allen to a four-year extension through 2020.

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports the deal will be "worth more than $11 million per season." With Allen set to be woefully underpaid in the final year of his rookie contract, the Chargers were smart to lock up the 24-year-old to a long-term deal. Allen was on pace for 134 catches for 1,450 yards and eight touchdowns before a lacerated kidney ended his season in Week 8. Those pace numbers are unlikely to be repeated, but he is a great bet to top 100 catches.
Jun 10 - 11:34 PM

NFL.com's Conor Orr reports the Chargers and contract-year WR Keenan Allen are discussing a four- or five-year extension.

This has been the expectation all offseason. Even though Allen is coming off an injury-shortened 2015 season, he was on pace for 134 catches for 1,450 yards and eight touchdowns before missing the final eight games of the year. Allen will command at least $10 million annually at the bare minimum on a new deal.

Philip Rivers said at Chargers OTAs that he believes Keenan Allen "figured out last year what it took to be a No. 1 receiver in this league."

Allen was on pace for 134 catches through Week 8 last season, before suffering a lacerated kidney on a touchdown catch against the Ravens. Allen's 2014 campaign disappointed as he struggled with conditioning, but he got his work habits in order last season and is now entering a contract year at age 24.
May 23 - 4:17 PM

Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt said Keenan Allen is going to be a "focal point" on offense.

As the Chargers' clear-cut No. 1 receiver, it's obvious Allen is going to be heavily involved on offense, but it's worth noting nonetheless after Allen missed half of last season with a lacerated kidney. "He is at the point now where this is an important year because he's going to be a focal point," Whisenhunt said. "He is going to have to win one-on-one matchups." Allen has made it a point to redistribute weight this offseason in an effort to play faster. The addition of Travis Benjamin as a lethal deep threat should help open the middle of the field for Allen and Antonio Gates.

Keenan Allen hopes to shed weight this offseason in hopes of playing faster in 2016.

Allen's conditioning seemed to be a major factor in his down 2014, but he appeared to be in good shape last season. Allen played at 212 pounds in 2014, but was down to 206 last summer. It's unclear what his goal is for the upcoming season. Whatever it is, it's good news that Allen is keeping a public commitment to being in great shape.
Apr 18 - 3:24 PM

Keenan Allen will be a full participant when the Chargers begin their offseason program on Monday.

This was expected after Allen declared himself 100 percent recovered from last year's lacerated kidney in late February. "I feel 100 percent," reiterated Allen. "I have no aches, no pains. The kidney healed up really well. I’ve just been working." Before going down, Allen was on pace for a career-best 134-1,450-8 receiving line. The 24-year-old is now entering a contract season.
Apr 17 - 7:08 PM

The Chargers plan to open extension talks with Keenan Allen after the draft.

Allen was on pace to set career highs before going down last year. Entering his age-24 season, he’s a prime extension candidate despite a history of injuries and suspect conditioning. Allen should be targeting Jeremy Maclin money (5 years, $55M).
Mar 4 - 8:59 PM

Keenan Allen has fully recovered from the lacerated kidney that ended his 2015 season in Week 8.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco stated at the Combine that Allen will participate fully in the offseason program. Turning 24 in April, Allen is only eight months older than incoming rookie WR Josh Doctson. This offseason would be a good time to target Allen in Dynasty league trades, attempting to buy him on a low.
