UPDATE: Keenan Allen has been downgraded to out. Mike Williams and Hunter Henry become Justin Herbert’s best targets in the second half.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen left their Monday night game due to a back injury and is questionable to return, per the Chargers. He was seen on the sideline being stretched out by a trainer and now he’s sitting on the bench.

Mike Williams, Jalen Guyton and Hunter Henry will see an uptick in work while the Chargers best wide receiver is on the sideline.
