Chargers placed WR Keenan Allen on injured reserve with a lacerated kidney, ending his season.
Per reporter Michael Gehlken, Allen underwent a non-surgical procedure on Monday to "stop bleeding." He's expected to make a full recovery, but obviously not in time to play again this season. His loss comes as the 2-6 Chargers are leading the league in passing at 337 yards per game. It's a tremendous shame for a player who was on pace for 134/1,450/8 at the season's midway point. It's also a huge blow for Philip Rivers, but he remains well stocked with weapons. Dontrelle Inman now sides into three-wide sets with Malcom Floyd and Stevie Johnson, while Ladarius Green's snaps should increase, as well. Still only 23, Allen will be in the final year of his rookie contract in 2016. Nov 3 - 1:56 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Keenan Allen (kidney) has undergone a "procedure," and is questionable for the remainder of 2015.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports it was a "non-surgical" procedure.'s Ian Rapoport has said Allen has a lacerated kidney. All parties agree that Allen is out indefinitely, and questionable for 2015. It's a massive blow for a passing offense that had been the league's best. The Bolts will now move forward with Malcom Floyd, Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman. Johnson could see the biggest increase in targets. Owners should hold onto Allen until a clearer timeline for his return emerges, but that could take 1-2 weeks.

Keenan Allen is out indefinitely with a kidney injury.

Coach Mike McCoy wouldn't put a timetable on Allen's recovery Monday, but acknowledged "he's going to miss some time." It sounds like a surefire multi-week injury. The Chargers are also nursing injuries to Antonio Gates (MCL) and Ladarius Green (ankle), in addition to numerous bumps and bruises along their offensive line. In Allen's absence, expect Gates, Stevie Johnson, Malcom Floyd, and perhaps Dontrelle Inman to get more work.

The Chargers are calling Keenan Allen's Week 8 injury "back spasms."

It was initially believed to be a shoulder injury. The Chargers later announced it as "muscle spasms," and now it's being called back spasms. The injury occurred on a late-second quarter touchdown catch, and Allen never returned. Allen's injury sounds like one he should be able to recover from in time for next Monday night's clash with the Bears. Stay tuned.
Nov 1 - 7:03 PM

Keenan Allen left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury late in the second quarter.

Allen made a leaping touchdown catch before getting up slowly, and heading into the locker room slowly. He did not return for the beginning of the second half. Before exiting, Allen had a 5-35-1 receiving line on five targets. The Chargers later announced Allen is dealing with "muscle spasms."
Nov 1 - 3:07 PM

Keenan Allen secured 9-of-13 targets for 89 yards in the Chargers' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

Allen entered this one listed as questionable with a hip injury, but showed no ill effects on the field. He caught a late-game touchdown pass from Philip Rivers from 20-plus yards out, but the play was negated by a phantom offensive pass interference flag. Allen will be a legitimate WR1 play when the Chargers take on the Ravens' soft pass defense in Week 8.
Oct 25 - 7:39 PM

Keenan Allen is active for Week 7 against the Raiders.

He'll play through a hip flexor injury and should be a target monster with Antonio Gates (knee) out. The Chargers will start Ladarius Green at tight end.
Oct 25 - 2:40 PM

Keenan Allen (questionable, hip) told reporters Friday that his hip flexor injury is no longer a concern.

Allen also promised he'll play against the Raiders after returning to Friday's practice. "I don't feel it at all," Allen insisted of the hip issue. "... I don't feel like I lost a step or anything. ... I'll be out there."
Oct 23 - 2:59 PM

Keenan Allen (hip, questionable) returned to Chargers practice on Friday.

The Chargers held Allen out of Wednesday and Thursday's sessions. His return to the practice field Friday indicates Allen will be out there against the Raiders. Oakland has easily the worst cornerback play in football, and Antonio Gates (knee) is in legitimate danger of missing. Allen projects as a target monster so long as his hip flexor doesn't cause him any in-game problems.
Oct 23 - 1:53 PM

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports there's "plenty of optimism" about Keenan Allen's (hip) Week 7 status.

Allen has yet to practice this week, but ran on a treadmill Thursday. A third straight "DNP" on Friday would put Allen's availability in serious jeopardy, but most signs suggest he'll suit up against the Raiders.
Oct 22 - 5:31 PM

Keenan Allen (hip) remained sidelined at Chargers practice Thursday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has reported Allen is dealing with a "minor" sprain, but back-to-back missed practices isn't a good sign after Allen departed last Sunday's loss to the Packers. It would be far from surprising if Allen returned on Friday and was slapped with an optimistic "questionable" tag, but his Week 7 status can't be taken for granted.
Oct 22 - 3:04 PM

Keenan Allen (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

Allen missed most of the fourth quarter with his hip issue last week. He's unlikely to get in much practice time, but NFL Network reported he "should be good to go" Sunday. Allen is a high-end WR2 if he plays.
Oct 21 - 5:04 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Keenan Allen suffered a minor hip sprain in Sunday's loss to the Packers and "should be good to go" for Week 7.

Allen was briefly in the locker room Sunday before returning for a couple plays. He quickly exited again but remained on the sidelines, suggesting it wasn't a long-term issue. Allen was well on his way to probably catching 20 balls against Green Bay before the injury. He'll be a strong WR2 against the Raiders Sunday.
Oct 19 - 7:55 PM

Keenan Allen suffered a hip flexor injury Week 6 against the Packers.

Allen will undergo tests on Monday to determine the severity of the injury, but he does not believe it is serious. Allen injured himself making his 14th catch of the game in the third quarter. He tried to reenter the game after a trip to the locker room, but he only lasted a few plays. Allen's status will be updated throughout the week.
Oct 19 - 10:53 AM

Keenan Allen exited Week 6 against the Packers with a hip injury.

He was injured after making his 14th catch of the game in the third quarter. Allen was a one-man wrecking crew against Green Bay's secondary, turning his 14 grabs into 157 scoreless yards. His biggest grabs were a 38-yard gain followed up by a 16-yarder that helped set up Dontrelle Inman's eventual one-yard touchdown just before halftime. After getting hurt, Allen went to the locker room before quickly returning and bowing out again just a few plays later. He remains on the sideline, but appears to be done for the day. Inman is in opposite Malcom Floyd.
