Keenan Allen believed to have a torn ACL

The Chargers season got off to a great start with touchdowns on their first three possessions while holding the Chiefs to just three points in the first half, but an eventual victory looks like it is going to be a bittersweet one for San Diego.

Wide receiver Keenan Allen was carted off in the first half after suffering a non-contact leg injury. That raises fears of season-ending injuries and that’s the way things have reportedly gone for Allen.

According to multiple reports, Allen suffered a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. There will be further tests to confirm the diagnosis, but it didn’t look good for Allen on the field and isn’t looking good for him getting back on it before 2017 either.

If confirmed, this would make two straight years ended with injury for Allen. That’s been the only knock to find in his game thus far, but it’s a big one if he’ll end this year having missed 23 of the last 32 games that the Chargers have played.

    Terrible news, but don’t give up, Keenan! You are a great player and a fine young man!

    All the best to this man. I don’t follow the Chargers closely, but I know this is a guy who makes things happen. I only hope whatever they find out is something that can get Keenan back into playing condition ASAP.

    This is fact ,,,,, do you know that in the 60 s and 70 s thy did not even treat an ACL tear and that they actually played with it never treated it then years later it would basically be arthritis in the knee !

    I feel bad for the guy. Ton a talent. Missed half of last year and now he’s probably out until next year.

    I can’t believe how little certain comments add to the discussion (I can’t write what I’m thinking, because I guess it would be removed). This is very sad news, and some geniuses come up with comments like “injury prone”, “made of glass”, “bust”, etc. Go out on the field and show us how strong and good you are, keyboard phenom!

    That’s messed up. Time to give T.O a call.

    Take some HGH from Gronk and you’ll be fine.

    My fault … drafted him as my # 1 wr.

    If I had to think of the worst possible start to the Chargers season, this is pretty much it.

    Turning point in the game… Dude was on track for almost 100 yards in the first half..
