Chargers WR Keenan Allen (heel) doesn't practice Tuesday

Wide receiver Keenan Allen may not be available for Giff Smith’s debut as the Chargers interim head coach.

Allen did not play in Brandon Staley’s final game as the team’s head coach because of a heel injury and he did not practice on Tuesday for the same reason.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Chargers will host the Bills on Saturday night, and owners should at least have plenty of notice for a backup plan if Allen doesn't play. As we said last week, the Bolts have no reason to rush Allen back into their lineup. Palmer could be a replacement option if he's on your wire, and had a big game in Week 15. However, the Chargers trailed the Raiders and had nothing to lose on the offensive side. The Bills proved to be a tough matchup against the Cowboys in Week 15 against the Cowboys.
