Allen has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and has been officially ruled out for the Chargers Week 17 matchup vs. the Chiefs. Allen was dealing with a hamstring injury before being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so he wasn’t expected to play to begin with. He missed the Chargers’ Week 16 contest vs. the Broncos after hobbling through their win vs. the Raiders in Week 15. With Allen out of the lineup, look for Mike Williams, Jaylen Guyton, and Tyron Johnson to handle most of the snaps at the wide receiver position.
The Chargers will head to Kansas City for their final game of the year, and they’re listed as 3.5-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook. That would be crazy under normal circumstances, but the Chiefs have ruled out Patrick Mahomes. Chad Henne will draw the start at quarterback, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if some of Kansas City’s other key players are also held out of the lineup. They’ve already locked up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, so they have nothing to play for.
