Keenan Allen injury woes get troubling admission from Brandon Staley

  • Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers may be without wide receiver Keenan Allen once again.
    • Allen has had his season derailed by a hamstring injury that he suffered in Week 1. Following the injury, he was sidelined until Week 7 when he attempted to make his return. This lasted just two quarters as Allen’s hamstring once again began to give him problems.

      His hamstring injury has limited Allen to a total of 45 offensive snaps this season. In his appearances, he has been targeted six times, recording six receptions for 77 total yards.

      On Wednesday, Chargers head coach Brandon Staley took the time to speak about Allen’s current injury and his potential status for Week 9.

      Via The Athletic’s Daniel Popper:

      “Keenan Allen (hamstring) will not practice today and it’s possible he will miss Sunday’s game vs. Falcons, per Brandon Staley. Staley said injury has not “responded the way that we hoped.”

      Allen not being available in Week 9 would be a major blow to this Chargers offense. Herbert will already be without his go-to pass catcher in Mike Williams who is currently dealing with a high ankle sprain. His return to the field isn’t expected anytime soon.

      The Chargers currently sit at 4-3 and every game has become a must-win for them. Allen returning to the field would be a major boost for this offensive unit that has been struggling. But his return may have to wait another week. In his absence, Herbert and running back Austin Ekeler will need to once again keep this unit afloat.

  • Chargers' Keenan Allen: Will remain sidelined Wednesday

    Rotowire  4 HRS AGO
    Allen (hamstring) won't practice Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. The Chargers were on bye last week, but head coach Brandon Staley acknowledged Wednesday that Allen's hamstring injury hasn't "responded the way that we hoped." With that in mind, the wideout's status for Sunday's game against the Falcons remains unclear, and with Mike Williams sidelined by an ankle injury, it's possible that Joshua Palmer -- who has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol -- and DeAndre Carter could lead the team's receiving corps.

Chargers receiver Allen has setback with hamstring injury

By JOE REEDY, AP Sports Writer - 1h ago
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Players usually return from the bye week refreshed or feeling confident about their bodies after getting extra time to rest.

For Keenan Allen, though, the time off ended up more frustrating.

The Los Angeles Chargers receiver said he had a setback with his injured hamstring while running during a training session last week. Allen did not practice on Wednesday, and his status for Sunday’s game at Atlanta is questionable.

“I don’t think it was a re-strain or anything. Just some more scar tissue is trying to break off,” Allen said. “Whenever it’s ready to heal, just let it do its own thing.”

Coach Brandon Staley wasn’t ready to call it a setback, but said the hamstring had not responded the way they had hoped.

“Our goal is to get him feeling like himself again, and we’re not there yet,” Staley said. “It’s just in a tricky spot. This injury can do that, at times, and that’s what it’s doing. It requires all of our patience — at the forefront, his patience. It’s testing his patience, but we’re going to make sure that he keeps progressing.”

Allen has played in only two games this season. He had four receptions for 66 yards in the Sept. 11 opener against the Raiders before injuring the hamstring in the second quarter.

Allen missed the next five games before seeing limited action on Oct. 23 against Seattle. He played 23 first-half snaps against the Seahawks and finished with two catches for 11 yards.

“I felt great. It wasn’t like training camp,” said Allen on how he felt during the game. “I definitely felt ready to play.”

The Chargers could be without their top three receivers on Sunday. Mike Williams is out because of an ankle injury, and Joshua Palmer is questionable coming out of the concussion protocol.

With injuries impacting the receiver group all season, Austin Ekeler leads NFL running backs with 53 receptions. It is only the third time a running back has at least 50 catches through his team’s first seven games.

Tight end Gerald Everett is third on the team with 27 catches for 305 yards and two touchdowns.

Despite the injuries, the Chargers are 4-3 as they begin a stretch where four of their next five games are on the road.

“We’ll be confident with whoever goes out there that is dressed. We’re going to have to put a good game plan together with the guys out there,” Staley said.

NOTES: Staley said LB Joey Bosa has returned to the team complex to continue his rehab from groin surgery four weeks ago. ... K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) and OLB Chris Rumpf II (knee) are also expected to miss Sunday’s game.

Who are their backups so I can check the waiver wire for this week?  Have a few guys on a bye and need big points.

It appears that their two primary replacement WRs will be Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter.  Joshua Palmer is just coming off concussion protocal, was a 3rd-round draft pick in 2021, and has 26 receptions for 240 yards and 1 TD thus far this season.  DeAndre Carter was an Undrafted Free Agent, who spent several years on various Practice Squads, and has 19 receptions for 229 yards and 1 TD thus far this seasoon.

Deandre Carter. He took a KR to the house against us last year when he was with Washington. He is speedy little 'short person'. I can already see him running wide open all over the field on quick screens and dump offs.
