It was announced early Thursday morning by Adam Schefter that wide receiver Keenan Allen is now expected to play this Saturday when the Chargers host the Baltimore Ravens at StubHub Center.

Allen, who left the game against the Chiefs after landing awkwardly on his hip in the end zone, was initially expected to miss multiple weeks.

After logging a limited practice on Wednesday, Allen looks to suit up and avoid missing his first game of the season. The Ravens entire defense is formidable. With their top-ranked run defense and their top-10 passing defense, there aren’t many weak spots in which to exploit.

Allen’s presence with be key to manipulating this defense as mismatches with the Raven’s slot corner and their linebackers may go along way, i.e., how Ken Whisenhunt found mismatches to get Allen 1-on-1 with Steelers’ linebacker LJ Fort several weeks ago.
