Chargers WR Keenan Allen said there’s a “small” chance he plays next week after going down with a hamstring injury. The turnaround on the short week won’t help.
Allen added he was impressed with WR DeAndre Carter, who was the “next man up.”
“As soon as I went out, ‘Dre’ came in [and was] making plays,” Allen said, via PFT. “That’s what you like to see when you go out. The offense didn’t stall at all. They kept things going, they kept things moving — next man up mentality. And I think they did a great job of coming in and making plays.”
