Friday PM Update: Allen is officially questionable for Sunday’s game on the team’s final injury report.

Friday update: Keenan Allen was not practicing during the media period, per Lindsey Thiry.

Thursday PM Update: Allen was limited in practice on Thursday, per the team’s official injury report.

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen will do individual work in Wednesday’s practice, per head coach Brandon Staley.

Allen sat out of the Chargers’ Week 2 TNF game against the Kansas City Chiefs, and is day-to-day for the Sunday game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Chargers are 7-point favorites at home, so they could probably take it slow with Allen, but coming off a loss to the Chiefs, they’d also like to have a full complement of receivers to get back on track.

Fantasy football implications

If Allen sits out, the Chargers will continue to lean on Mike Williams, who had eight receptions for 118 yards in Week 2, as well as WR DeAndre Carter and tight end Gerald Everett. RB Austin Ekeler has also been racking up receptions along with rushing yards.

In Week 1, Allen led the Chargers in receiving yards, bringing in four catches for 66 yards, despite leaving the game early.
