Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. If Royal plays, it may limit the number of snaps the Chargers are able to give to Ladarius Green, who saw a season high in snaps (61/67) in Week 13 when Royal was out, but saw his snap percentage drop to 42% upon Royal’s return in Week 14.

Keenan Allen (shoulder) practicing today, as expected.

Fantasy Impact:
Allen appears to be good to go for Thursday night against the Broncos, who rank 31st in allowing fantasy points to WRs. Allen should be a good play when our rankings come out Wednesday.

Chargers WR Eddie Royal returned to practice Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:
Royal may not be a fantasy starter, but his return last week seemed to affect TE Ladarius Green's play. Green saw just one target with Royal back in the lineup after playing 92% of the snaps in Week 13.

Broncos WR Wes Weller is not practicing today.

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

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.
