Fantasy Impact:

Union-Tribune San Diego - [Full Article]

Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen exited the game Sunday with a first-quarter shoulder sprain suffered while shielding himelf from collision. Despite the interruption, he still padded his résumé for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, totaling three catches for 59 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-14 win.

It was the first multi-touchdown game of his career.

Fantasy Impact:

After going to the locker room for further evaluation, Allen received a shot and returned in the second quarter. In his first drive back, he caught a 4-yard touchdown on a corner route against blown coverage. Allen looks like he'll be a go next week against the Broncos on a short week. After that, in Week 16, he gets the Raiders - two pretty favorable matchups in the future.

Wes Welker suffers another concussion

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Wes Welker has been ruled out for the second half of the Denver Broncos game against the Tennessee Titans after sustaining his second concussion this season.

Welker took a hit to the head on a play across the middle late in the second quarter. His neck was bent awkwardly on the play.

Fantasy Impact:

It's his second concussion with Denver, and the chances of Welker coming back for Week 15 could be pretty slim as the Broncos have a Thursday night game against the Chargers. The short week really hurts owners. Of course, if Welker is out, Eric Decker could see more targets and Andre Caldwell becomes a potential, sneaky play.

Chargers have downgraded WR Eddie Royal (toe, chest) to doubtful for Sunday's game vs. Bengals. Originally listed as questionable.

Fantasy Impact:

Royal is usually a risky play but it looks like he might not go this week. While Seyi Ajirotutu will fill in for Royal and be equally risky, this very well could end up meaning TE Ladarius Green will get more targets.

Union-Tribune San Diego - [Full Article]

Antonio Gates missed five of 72 offensive snaps Sunday.

The way his hamstring felt, it could have been more.

The Chargers tight end was back on the field Friday, present at an all-important practice after missing the previous two days. He was a full participant and is listed as probable to face the Bengals on Sunday, but the hamstring ailment is not a small, sweep-under-the-rug matter.

Hamstring injuries never are.

"It's tricky," Gates said Friday. "It's different. It's one of those injuries where you can't fully grasp whether or not you can do something because it's all running. Everything is based off running and power and holding off people on blocks, and the hamstring is a big part of that. Without the lower body, you couldn't play in this league. I'll see how it goes. I'm going to attack this rehab. I've got two more days. That's the best part about it.

Fantasy Impact:

Gates said if he had to play Friday, he wasn't sure he would have been able to go. But a couple more days will definitely help Gates leading up to Sunday's game. If he can't go, emerging star Ladarius Green would likely get a major bump up our TE rankings.
