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.
