Chargers WR Keenan Allen done for season after kidney injury

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is done for the season after injuring a kidney while making a spectacular touchdown catch in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Chargers placed Allen on season-ending injured reserve on Tuesday.

Allen, who was second in the NFL with 67 catches on the season, was hurt while making a touchdown catch just before halftime of Sunday's 29-26 loss at Baltimore. At the time, the Chargers thought Allen had the wind knocked out of him.

Allen was on pace for a 134-catch season that would have broken the team record of 100 set by LaDainian Tomlinson in 2003.

Allen was third in the NFL this season with 725 yards receiving. He had four touchdown receptions.

Running back Branden Oliver and linebacker Tourek Williams were also placed on injured reserve.
