Update: It doesn’t sound like Allen’s hamstring injury is severe, as he thinks he has a chance to play, per Lindsey Thiry. Players aren’t reliable sources of course, but this is better news than what it could have been.

Update: Allen has been downgraded to OUT, per Adam Schefter. The Chargers take on Kansas City on Thursday night.

Update: Allen is questionable to return with a hamstring injury.

Keenan Allen pulled up and grabbed his hamstring late in the second quarter against the Raiders, per Field Yates. Allen already had four receptions for 66 yards before leaving. If he can’t return, Josh Palmer would be the likely fill in and would be worth a waiver wire pickup if Allen can’t go next week.
