Beat: Keenan Allen had knee hypertension
Monday, November 18, 2013, 9:43am
Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen had a tough first play to the fourth quarter. He suffered a right knee injury, forcing him to be a spectator for a two-minute drill that fell short in a 20-16 loss to the Dolphins.
“Just hope for the best,” Allen said of his sideline thoughts for the final sequence. “Can't do anything about it.”
The early sense is Allen suffered a hypertension. In 2012, he missed the end of his junior season at California with a knee injury, that one to his left.
Later Monday afternoon, HC Mike McCoy said Allen is going to be fine. He showed no apparent limp when walking after the game. Looks like Allen and owners, dodged a bullet here.

Peyton Manning 'sore,' will get MRI
Sunday, November 10, 2013, 9:42pm
Quarterback Peyton Manning continued his record touchdown pace Sunday in the Denver Broncos' 28-20 win at San Diego. He also continued a surprising recent trend: taking a lot of hits behind a leaky offensive line.
The Chargers got clean shots at Manning around his previously injured ankle toward the end of the game, but he never left the field.
"I'm pretty sore," Manning said during the postgame press conference. "They kind of got me twice in kind of that lower area. It felt better coming into the game after the bye week, but I'm pretty sore. I'm getting an MRI tomorrow so I'll know a little more then."
The story said "it would be the upset of the century if Manning wasn't on the field against Kansas City next week," in what is a huge divisional showdown. But, as the story also pointed out, an MRI indicates there is some level of concern. With two matchups coming up against the Chiefs' great pass rush, Manning's ability to stay upright will be a huge storyline to watch.
