Monday update: As expected, Allen has been formally ruled out for Week 6 against the Broncos.

Saturday update: The Chargers have listed Allen as doubtful for Week 6. He is pushing for a Week 7 return.

Friday update: Allen went through the same practice routine on Friday as he did on Thursday, per Dan Popper. He went through individual drills, but then when the receivers started running full routes, he moved to the side did sprints and strides with trainers at less than 100%.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is still dealing with a hamstring injury and was listed as a limited participant in practice on Thursday. The team is set to host the Denver Broncos for an AFC West showdown for Week 6 and with it being the Monday night game this week, the Chargers had their first full practice of this week on Thursday.

Allen has been sidelined for the last four weeks with the injury and his his lone appearance in the 2022 season came during Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders. In that matchup, he caught four targets for 66 yards in a 24-19 victory.

Fantasy football implications

Allen being listed as a limited participant to open the practice week is a good sign for fantasy managers who have barely gotten a chance to put him into their lineups this season. Still, keep an eye on his status throughout the weekend, especially on Saturday.
