Keenan Allen forced to leave with hip injury

New York Times - [Full Article]

The San Diego Chargers were on the brink of handing the Green Bay Packers their first regular season loss at Lambeau Field since December of 2013, but Keenan Allen, well on the way to a new franchise record for receptions, was lost to a hip injury and he took much of the team's momentum with him.

Allen was in the middle of an incredible performance at the time of his injury. The third-year wide receiver had already reached 14 catches and 157 yards midway through the third quarter, and his team had fought back from a 17-3 deficit to tie the game.

But on his 14th catch, he was slow to get up. He pointed at his hip when a trainer checked on him, and walked under his own power into the locker room for evaluation. Allen returned to the game shortly after, but eventually was ruled out for the remainder of the game with what the team characterized as a hip injury. The Chargers are home against Oakland in Week 7 in a late afternoon game.
