The LA Chargers have been the most injured team in the NFL this season and despite all of the adversity that the team has faced, the Bolts still have a 5-3 record and are in the hunt for a playoff spot in the AFC.

Los Angeles arguably has its two toughest games of the season on primetime coming up against the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. If the Bolts can win these two games and propel to 7-3 it would all but guarantee a playoff spot. However, a 1-1 split would still be fantastic for the team.

In order to do that, the Chargers are going to have to get some reinforcements back from the injury report. Unfortunately, Chargers fans did not get promising injury news as it pertains to Keenan Allen, who has played all of four quarters this season for the team.

Latest injury update for Keenan Allen:

Allen not practicing on Wednesday is not a good sign for his chances of playing on Sunday against the 49ers. While Brandon Staley has not ruled Allen out of the game, it would be very surprising if he ended up playing after not practicing on Wednesday.

After returning and reaggravating the injury, Allen said that he would not come back until he was absolutely 100% ready to go. While he said he was good enough to play in Week 7, he was not absolutely 100%. If Allen is not practicing on Wednesday, the chances of him being 100% by Sunday are slim.

Mike Williams is still out and is projected to miss another 2-4 weeks with his ankle sprain.

Chargers injury update: Trey Pipkins and Chris Rumph II are up in the air for Week 10

Trey Pipkins and Chris Rumph II are just two of many Chargers that are dealing with injuries and their statuses for Week 10 against the 49ers are up in the air. Trey Pipkins aggravated an MCL strain that he has been playing through in Week 9. Staley said on Wednesday that he wil "probably be a game-time decision".

Rumph also suffered an MCL strain with his occurring in Week 7 against Seattle. Rumph rested during the bye week and did not play last week against the Falcons. Staley said that there is a chance that Rumph could play against the 49ers and he would too be a game-time decision.

Austin Johnson, who fractured his knee and suffered an MCL injury in Week 9 against the Falcons, was officially put on the IR on Wednesday. Fan-favorite Breiden Fehoko was signed to the active roster to replace him.
