The Chargers dropped their second injury report of Week 16 and as much as I’d like to report on something new, the report is no different than it was 24 hours ago.
It’s headlined by wide receiver Keenan Allen who was once again a non-participant for the second practice in a row. He’s been dealing with a heel injury that kept him out of last week’s Thursday night game against the Raiders, the one that ended up being the last in which he’d be coached by Brandon Staley. After missing both Tuesday and Wednesday’s session, it’s likely he’ll miss this week’s game against the Bills, too.
Allen needs just 151 yards to set a new single-season high in receiving yards this year. With two touchdowns, he’d also break his current high mark of eight that he posted in both his rookie season and the 2020 campaign.
At this rate, he’ll be hard-pressed to make it happen with Easton Stick the one throwing him the ball.
As for the rest of the report, like I stated earlier, it’s the same as Tuesday’s. Cornerback Deane Leonard continues to sit out with a heel injury of his own. Cornerback Essang Bassey (concussion), linebackers Tanner Muse (knee) and Amen Ogbongbemiga (hamstring), offensive tackle Trey Pipkins (wrist), and defensive tackle Nick Williams (shoulder) were all limited.
Offensive guard Zion Johnson remained on the list with an ankle injury but remained a full participant.
