Los Angeles Chargers star wideout Keenan Allen was injured during the team’s Week 10 game against the Detroit Lions, leaving the game with a shoulder injury before returning to the field. 

While he finished last week’s game, Allen got this week started on the wrong foot, as he missed Wednesday’s practice. 

The Chargers are already down Mike Williams and Josh Palmer at receiver, so the team hopes Allen can play against the Green Bay Packers. 

If not, Jalen Guyton and Quentin Johnston would be the team’s top wideouts.

Quentin Johnston anytime touchdown scorer 

While there aren’t touchdown odds up for this game yet, I love taking Johnston to score when he found the end zone in Week 10. 

Even if Allen plays, Johnston – the first rofirst-roundund pick in the 2023 NFL Draft – should have a big role with Williams and Palmer out of the lineup.
