Keenan Allen could miss rest of preseason with ankle injury
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is dealing with an ankle injury that could knock him out for the rest of the preseason, according to a report.
Allen suffered an ankle injury at practice this week but it is not considered serious, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Schefter says although Allen could miss the rest of the preseason, he is expected to be ready for Week 1.
After dealing with injuries early in his career, Allen has been able to play all 16 games the last two seasons and has developed into a go-to option for Philip Rivers.
Allen caught 97 passes for 1,196 yards and six touchdowns last season. The year before he had 102 catches for 1,393 yards and six TDs. Mike Williams and Travis Benjamin are among the team’s other top receiving options.
The Chargers are dealing with questions at their skill positions as running back Melvin Gordon continues to hold out.
