Keenan Allen of the Los Angeles Chargers has been ruled out of Thursday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs due to a hamstring injury. Allen was hurt in the first half of Sunday’s 24-19 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. After planting his foot on the turf during the second quarter, Allen felt a tiny pull and his hamstring stiffened.
Despite playing only 22 snaps, he led the Chargers in receiving yards and tied for the team lead in catches with four. On Tuesday, coach Brandon Staley stated Allen’s injury will “take some time.”
Allen is in his tenth season and has caught at least 95 catches in each of the previous five seasons, tying him for the second-longest streak in NFL history. In Palmer’s place, Joshua Palmer is slated to start, and DeAndre Carter is projected to get increased playing time.

After suffering ankle surgery three weeks ago, cornerback J.C. Jackson might make his Chargers debut. Jackson is listed as doubtful after being limited in practice for the second day in a row. During the summer, Jackson agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract.
“I think he’s on the right track,” Staley said, “but I think there’s still a lot to be resolved before game time on Thursday night.”
