Keenan Allen out 'some time' with kidney injury

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

The Chargers will be without Keenan Allen for "some time," coach Mike McCoy announced Monday.

Allen suffered a kidney injury Sunday when he landed hard at the end of a 13-yard touchdown catch in a 29-26 loss to the Ravens. The wide receiver traveled back from Baltimore to San Diego after the game with the team, but his symptoms worsened as the night progressed. He was checked into a San Diego hospital.

Fantasy Impact: 

Obviously a huge blow to this offense and to QB Philip Rivers. Stevie Johnson, Malcom Floyd, Dontrelle Inman and Jacoby Jones will have to pick up the slack at WR. The team could also turn to TEs Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green, when healthy. Danny Woodhead should continue to be a force in the passing game from the RB position.
