Keenan Allen says his hamstring got worse during the bye week when training.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) November 2, 2022
He says next time he goes in a game it won’t be on a snap count, that it will be all or nothing, with his hamstring absolutely ready to go.
He said he felt great going into Week 7, but not 100%.
