Los Angeles Chargers coach says it's 'not looking great' for WR Keenan Allen to play Thursday

Los Angeles Chargers coach Brandon Staley said it's "not looking great" for injured wide receiver Keenan Allen to play in the Thursday night game in Kansas City.

Allen left the Chargers' Week 1 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in the first half with a hamstring injury. He did not practice Tuesday.

An MRI did not reveal any major damage, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

While Staley declined to say definitively that Allen won't play Thursday, the short week doesn't work in the wide receiver's favor and the team doesn't want him to aggravate the injury.

If Allen is unable to play, expect receivers Joshua Palmer, DeAndre Carter and Jalen Guyton to see increased opportunity.
