Coach Mike McCoy confirmed that Allen (collarbone) won't play Saturday against the 49ers, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports.

Meanwhile, Allen hasn't been ruled out for Week 17, but his status for that game looks iffy, at best, at this stage. With Allen out this week, at a minimum, fellow wideouts Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal are candidates to see added looks in the Chargers' passing attack Saturday, along with Seyi Ajirotutu.

Allen suffered a broken collarbone along with an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

The injury figures to jeopardize Allen's availability for the remainder of the season, but the Chargers are only saying for now that the second-year wideout is not expected to play Sunday against San Francisco. It's been a rather disappointing year for Allen's owners -- in standard leagues at least -- but he currently leads the Chargers in receptions (77) and yards (783). He's also been huge for Philip Rivers on third down, catching 19 passes for 219 yards.

Coach Mike McCoy relayed Monday that Allen is getting his ankle evaluated.

We'll continue to monitor Allen's status, but at this stage the wideout's availability for Saturday's game against the 49ers is cloudy.

Allen, who suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, sported a protective boot over his right foot after the game, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports.

Allen's status is thus worth tracking as next Saturday's game against the 49ers approaches.

Allen was forced out of Sunday's game against the Broncos with an ankle injury.

Prior to being carted off the field Sunday, Allen had recorded three catches (on eight targets) for 18 yards.

Allen (unspecified issue) was carted off the field during Sunday's game against the Broncos, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports.

More info as we know it, but the report notes that Allen's right leg was elevated on the bench before he was carted off, while adding that his right ankle was taped earlier in the contest.

Allen completed 2-of-3 targets for three yards in Sunday's 23-14 loss to the Patriots.

A trip to Revis Island was no good for Allen, who isn't exactly the best at creating separation. He was shadowed all night by the Patriots' top cornerback, and only caught a pair of very short passes. While not the quickest of receivers, Allen does plenty of other things well, and he should bounce back in Week 15 against the Broncos. He caught 9-of-13 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against Denver.

Allen had 11 catches on 15 targets for 121 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 34-33 win over the Ravens.

Allen led the team in catches, targets, receptions and touchdowns in a dominant performance that has given him back-to-back games with at least 100 yards and a score. He's getting plenty of passes thrown his way (24 targets over that span), and he figures to keep being a popular option in Week 14 against the Patriots, who allowed 368 yards and two touchdowns through the air to the Packers in Week 13.

Allen caught 6-of-8 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Rams. He also lost a pair of fumbles in the game.

It was a strong game for Allen, who showed off his nifty moves in the open field a season-long 35-yard catch, although a defender tracked him down from behind and stripped the ball. Later in the fourth quarter, Allen took a screen pass, and once again showed craftiness in space, breaking tackles on his way to a 29-yard touchdown. Philip Rivers, who has been banged up almost all season, hardly took any shots down the field, so we should continue to see Allen run shorter routes, taking advantage of his after-the-catch ability. He'll have a favorable matchup in Week 13, facing a injury-depleted Ravens' secondary.

Allen caught 8-of-13 targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Raiders. He also returned four punts for 44 yards.

As the Chargers have done pretty much all season, they used Allen on shorter routes, although Philip Rivers did take one deep shot to him in the first half. The second-year wideout continues to see a ton of looks, with 45 targets over the last four games, but he hasn't topped 75 yards, while scoring just one touchdown during that span. He did improve on his numbers from the last time he faced the Raiders in Week 6, when he caught just 3-of-6 targets for 27 yards. For those in leagues that count return yardage, note that Allen has been the primary punt returner over the last couple of games. Next week, Allen will face a Rams defense that hasn't been generous to opposing WRs this season.
