Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen

WR / Los Angeles Chargers
Chargers' Keenan Allen (hamstring) limited on Thursday, exits practice early
What it means
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) was limited at practice on Thursday ahead of Week 4's game against the Houston Texans. Allen logged another limited practice on Thursday as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury suffered earlier in the season. However, he left practice early with a trainer. Allen's early exit doesn't necessarily mean he suffered a setback. Friday's practice report and injury designation should provide more information. A downgrade to a missed practice on Friday would indicate a setback. For now, his status for Sunday remains very up in the air. Allen's current Week 4 projection includes 5.3 receptions, 63.3 yards, 0.36 touchdowns, and 11.1 FanDuel points.

QB / Los Angeles Chargers
Herbert (ribs) practiced fully Thursday.
What it means
That Herbert practiced fully Thursday suggests that he's in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Texans. Friday's injury report will reveal whether the QB heads into the weekend with a Week 4 injury designation or fully cleared to continue to play through his rib issue.

Keenan Allen

WR / Los Angeles Chargers
Allen (hamstring) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.
What it means
Miller notes that Allen, who was also limited Wednesday, exited Thursday's session with a trainer near the end of the media-viewing portion of practice. It remains to be seen if that's indicative or a setback or not, but Friday's injury report should add further context with regard to Allen's chances of returning to action Sunday against the Texans.

Keenan Allen

WR / Los Angeles Chargers
Allen, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury, left Thursday's practice with a trainer, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.
What it means
Allen, who has missed two straight games, logged a limited practice Wednesday, but his exit from Thursday's session is a situation to monitor ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans. If Allen is unable to return to action this weekend, Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter would continue to see added WR opportunities for the Chargers in Week 4.

Chris Rumph II

Chris Rumph II

LB / Los Angeles Chargers
Chargers coach Brandon Staley indicated that Rumph will step in at defensive end in place of starter Joey Bosa (groin), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
What it means
With Bosa set to miss at least four games while on IR, Rumph and veteran Kyle Van Noy are expected to help fill in along the edge of the Bolts' defensive front, according to Thiry. The second-year linebacker played primarily on special teams -- 330 of his 496 total snaps -- during his rookie campaign, but Staley said Wednesday that "he's ready to play on the edge." Rumph recorded two tackles and one pass defended while playing a career-high 42 defensive snaps Sunday against Jacksonville, and he'll look to tally his first sack of the season next week against Houston.
Justin Herbert

Justin Herbert

QB / Los Angeles Chargers
Chargers' Justin Herbert (ribs) logs limited practice on Wednesday
What it means
Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (ribs) was a limited participant on Wednesday. Despite playing with fractured cartilage in his ribs in Week Three, Herbert was able to register a limited session to open Week Four's practice week. In a potential opportunity against a Houston Texans' unit ranked fifth (11.5) in FanDuel points allowed to quarterbacks this season, our models project Herbert to score 19.6 FanDuel points. Herbert's current projection includes 23.5 completions for 1.8 touchdowns and 270.4 yards.
