Keenan Allen(Northern Guilford HS)/Los Angeles Chargers, left the Chargers’ Monday night football game with Back Spasms…Out Indefinitely….Back Spasms…Allen should be able to return to the Chargers’ lineup in two weeks…

Keenan Allen made an early exit in the Los Angeles Chargers’ Monday night bout with the New Orleans Saints, and the extent of his injury has been revealed.
According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Allen suffered back spasms early in the game versus the Saints:
On the Chargers’ second offensive drive of the game, Allen hauled in a touchdown from Justin Herbert to give them a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. While Allen was able to convert on the touchdown, he noticed something wrong with his back and went to the locker room.
After initially being ruled as questionable to return, the Chargers decided to hold him out for the rest of the game. As Pelissero says, due to the schedule changes, Los Angeles now has a bye week in Week 6 instead of Week 10.
Given that, the Chargers understand that Allen could have an extra week to recover before returning to the field. And seeing that Los Angeles now holds a 1-4 record, making sure Allen is a hundred percent is vital for their efforts to attempt making a comeback in the standings.
Upon Allen’s early exit, Mike Williams saw a more expanded role in the Chargers’ aerial attack. Williams had the best game he has had thus far this season on Monday, hauling in five passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns.
In all likeliness, Allen will be back in the offense when Los Angeles takes on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 7. But it will be worth monitoring his status in the next week or so before the Chargers feel comfortable inserting him back in the lineup.
