The San Diego Chargers had a rough day on Sunday, and wide receiver had a rougher day after injuring his knee on the first play to the fourth quarter. He suffered a right knee injury, forcing him to miss the Chargers’ two-minute drill as the team dropped a narrow 20-16 loss to the Miami Dolphins that may ultimately prevent them from making it to the NFL postseason.

The early belief was that Allen suffered a hyperextension of the same knee that in 2012, his final season with the California Bears, caused him to miss the end of his junior season with a knee injury. He showed no apparent limp when walking after the game.

Today, Chargers Head Coach Mike McCoy said that Allen was fine:

Allen wasn’t much of a factor even before leaving, catching three passes for 45 yards on six targets, but has been a great weapon this year for Phillip Rivers. He’s now on pace for over 60 catches and over 1,000 receiving yards.
