AFC Notes: Keenan Allen, Jim Harbaugh, Joe Thuney, Chargers, Chiefs, Raiders


Chargers’ veteran WR Keenan Allen, who is entering the final year of his contract, expects to continue playing in Los Angeles next season and in the foreseeable future. 

“Yeah. Absolutely,” Allen said, via “I don’t see myself going anywhere.”

Allen said new HC Jim Harbaugh wants him to continue being one of their leaders. 

“He’s been watching for a long time, and we actually played against each other: Stanford-Cal,” Allen said. “He just wants me to continue to be a leader. Continue to be who I am. And he’s going to do his job.”


  • Chiefs LG Joe Thuney (pectoral) and DE Charles Omenihu (ACL) did not participate in Friday’s practice, per Matt Derrick. 
  • Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo said they’ll look for DE Felix Anudike-Uzomah to help fill in for Omenihu, but it’s difficult to replace Omenihu’s height and length: “You don’t replace that height and length,” per Adam Teicher.  
  • Spagnuolo views 49ers QB Brock Purdy as much more than a game-managing type of player: “All (people) have to do is put the tape on. It’s not a quarterback that’s managing,” via Jeremy Fowler.
