Chargers Place WR Keenan Allen On I.R. & Activating Rookie DE Joey Bosa

The San Diego Chargers are officially placing Keenan Allen (ACL) on injured reserve and activating first-round DE Joey Bosa, according to Kevin Acee.

Allen was carted off the field during Sunday’s game with what appeared to be a serious knee injury.

According to Ian Rapoport, Allen does, in fact, have a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.

Allen, 24, was taken in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Chargers. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.81 million rookie contract when the Chargers signed him to a four-year, $45 million extension that included $20 million guaranteed.

In 2015, Allen was limited to appearing in eight games due to a lacerated kidney he suffered midseason. He finished the year catching 67 passes for 725 yards receiving and four touchdowns.

Bosa, 20, was taken with the No. 3 overall pick by the Chargers. It was a bit of a surprise to see them grab Bosa, considering the amount of buzz that they were going to take either take Ronnie Stanley or DeForest Buckner.

However, Bosa gives them a solid pass-rushing prospect to develop in the coming years.

According to, Bosa receives a four-year contract worth $25,873,672 to go along with a signing bonus of $17,017,216. The contract will include a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2019.

During his three-year career at Ohio State, Bosa recorded 148 tackles, 51 tackles for a loss, 26 sacks, five forced fumbles, an interception, two fumble recoveries, and six pass defenses.
