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'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.
Jun 6 - 8:18 PM

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.
May 13 - 12:36 PM

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.
Feb 25 - 11:32 AM

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.

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.

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."
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 03:07:00 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.
