Keenan Allen recorded five catches for 61 yards on nine targets Sunday in the Chargers’ Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.
Allen won most of his matchups in the middle of the field and Philip Rivers probably would have been wise to target him more frequently rather than constantly bombing risky deep balls into the teeth of Kansas City’s secondary. A master route runner with enough size to win matchups against physical corners (like Marcus Peters, for example), Allen remains one of the league’s most versatile receiving weapons. He’ll be a borderline WR1 against the Eagles in Week 4. Sep 24 - 9:20 PM

Keenan Allen caught 9-of-10 targets for 100 yards in the Chargers' Week 2 loss to the Dolphins.

Allen has looked superb in his first two games back from ACL surgery, seeing 10 targets in each game and dominating the Dolphins' middle-field defenders with crisp routes and sure hands. As long as Allen is able to stay on the field, he should be in the WR1 conversation at year's end. Antonio Gates simply doesn't have much left, and Allen is taking back over as Philip Rivers' favorite chain mover. Allen gets another plus draw at home against the Chiefs in Week 3.

Keenan Allen caught 5-of-10 targets for 35 yards and one touchdown in a loss to the Broncos in Week 1.

The Broncos appeared to have a plan to limit Allen with plenty of double teams and cornerback Chris Harris doing his thing. Allen's TD came on a slant for the five-yard strike, but he foolishly was called for an unsportsmanlike conduct to cost the Chargers 15 yards of field position in the fourth quarter. Allen will get easier matchups and he should flirt with WR1 production as long as he's able to stay on the field. He'll be a strong start against the Dolphins for Week 2.
Sep 12 - 1:39 AM

Keenan Allen caught 5-of-5 targets for 45 yards in the Chargers' third preseason game.

It was a smooth summer finale for Allen, who looked great coming in and out of his breaks. True to Philip Rivers' July word, Allen appears all the way back from his torn ACL. He's a target hog WR2.
Aug 26 - 11:49 PM

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams wrote Keenan Allen (knee) "looked quick and explosive" during the offseason program.

It is an opinion shared by Philip Rivers, who said the receiver "looks as good as he did before he got hurt" and was running at "full speed" during OTAs. It is not surprising Allen is already back to 100 percent considering he tore his ACL in Week 1, but staying healthy has been the real concern, with Allen playing just nine games the last two seasons. Even if he stays on the field, Allen is returning to a much more crowded depth chart even if No. 7 overall pick Mike Williams (back) is forced to miss the season. Allen is a reasonable pick at his current WR20 ADP, but that will not remain the case if his name value forces him up draft boards.

Philip Rivers believes Keenan Allen (knee) has already re-gained his pre-injury form.

Allen went down with a torn ACL last Week 1. "I really think he looks as good as he did before he got hurt," Rivers said on The Rich Eisen Show. Allen was reportedly running at "full speed" in OTAs. He should be 100 percent for the opening of camp. His ADP could be a bit of a rollercoaster with Mike Williams (back) status uncertain.
Jul 20 - 5:49 PM

Keenan Allen (knee) ran routes at full speed during OTAs.

Allen was limited to individual drills, but his recovery has gone as well as possible. He should be fully cleared for training camp. Allen has played only nine games the last two years, but he has a high rebound potential if healthy. That said, Mike Williams could cut into Allen's touchdown count.
May 19 - 7:31 PM

Keenan Allen (ACL) estimates he's at 85 percent health.

Allen will be babied along through the offseason program, but remains on pace to be full go for training camp. Allen heads into 2017 having appeared in just 9-of-32 games over the past two seasons, but his upside remains palpable as Philip Rivers' No. 1 receiver.
Apr 10 - 3:09 PM

Keenan Allen (ACL) said he expects to be ready for training camp.

Allen said he is not going to "kill" himself by pushing too hard during the offseason program, but he is already running and cutting. He should be close to a full-go when training camp opens, and he should be 100 percent by Week 1.
Mar 21 - 9:37 AM

Chargers GM Tom Telesco said Keenan Allen (ACL) is "on track" in his recovery.

Telesco did not give a timetable for Allen's return, but he did say they will have a clearer idea by April. Considering he suffered the injury in Week 1, Allen should be close to 100 percent by the time training camp opens, especially if he really is "on track."
Mar 2 - 12:04 PM

Keenan Allen (knee) has begun sprinting.

Allen tore his ACL less than four months ago. He's way ahead of schedule and should be ready in plenty of time for training camp. Allen is San Diego's best receiver when healthy.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 01:57:00 PM

Keenan Allen (knee) expects to be ready for spring workouts.

Allen hasn’t had any setbacks since going down in Week 1. He reportedly feels pain-free in his recovery. Signed to a four-year deal in June, Allen is set to make $8.65 million next season. He’ll be eight months removed from surgery for OTAs.

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.
