Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen landed on the Week 11 injury report ahead of the team's matchup with the Denver Broncos. The veteran wideout was limited in practice today with finger and hip ailments, but is fully expected to play on Sunday. 

The injury news is particularly concerning, considering Allen's matchup with Chris Harris is one of the tougher ones in the NFL. In fact, Allen has been kept under 100 receiving yards in all six of the Chargers regular-season meetings with the Broncos. He did, however, have a huge playoff game against them back in 2014.

Allen has had a decent season, one year after finishing with career-high numbers in most categories -- his six touchdowns were two shy of his best output, which actually came in his rookie season.


Fellow Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams also landed on the injury report with a groin injury, so this will certainly be a situation to keep an eye on going into Sunday. If Allen does play, and he is expected to, then he'll be a low-end WR1 with upside, catching passes from Philip Rivers, who is in the midst of the ​best fantasy season of his career.
