Chargers injury updates ahead of matchup with Seahawks in Week 7

The Chargers will soon host the Seahawks, looking to pick up their fourth straight win before they head into the bye week.

The good news is that they may be getting back Keenan Allen, who has missed the past five games with a hamstring injury. Allen is questionable and will be a game-time decision, per Brandon Staley.

“He’s closer,” Staley said on Allen.

Sebastian Joseph-Day is listed as questionable with an ankle issue, but Staley said he should play.

The bad news? Los Angeles will be without Dustin Hopkins (hamstring), Joshua Kelley (knee), Josh Palmer (concussion), and Donald Parham Jr. (concussion), who were ruled out.

Hopkins is out for the next two to four weeks. Taylor Bertolet will serve as the team’s kicker in his absence.

With Kelley out, rookie Isaiah Spiller will be active, Staley announced Friday. Spiller has been inactive for each of the first six games.

If Allen can’t go, the Chargers will only have three active wide receivers. If that’s the case, Los Angeles will likely sign Michael Bandy to the active roster and promote John Hightower or Joe Reed from the practice squad.
