ATL: Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu seen ‘limping heavily’
Sunday, September 11, 2016, 8:12pm
Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu limping heavily through the locker room after tweaking an ankle.
Sanu had a very nice day with five catches for 80 yards and a TD, and it appears like he’s going to be a nice WR2 option opposite Julio Jones. No other information was available but we’ll continue to monitor. Sanu is looking like a top pickup off the wire heading into Week 2. It’s worth noting Jones also tweaked his ankle but says he will be fine.

I’m told Russell Wilson is right now getting a precautionary x-ray on his right ankle.
Wilson suffered the injury in the first half but didn’t miss any time. Because of that, we can only assume, as of now, he should be OK for Week 2, but we’ll continue to monitor the situation. Obviously this kind of injury can affect Russell’s mobility.

SD: Initial tests say Bolts WR Keenan Allen tore ACL

Keenan Allen‘s return from a season-ending kidney injury last year took a dreadful turn in San Diego’s 33-27 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
Based on initial tests, Allen suffered a suspected torn ACL during the second quarter of the game, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Allen was down on the field in pain before being carted off the field. The team confirmed that he suffered a right knee injury.
It’s a huge blow to the Chargers offense and QB Philip Rivers takes a bit of a hit to his fantasy value. The Chargers may have to turn to the run a little more going forward, especially with Melvin Gordon looking good in Week 1. But Tyrell Williams finished with 2 catches for 71 yards and drew a lot of positive press this summer. He’s a name to watch for as a guy to get more snaps and targets, likely on the outside with Dontrelle Inman remaining in the slot. Travis Benjamin moves to the WR1 spot.
SD: Chargers WR Keenan Allen (knee) carted off field

Yahoo Sports – [Full Article]
Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen has been carted off the field late in the second quarter of their game against the Chiefs with what appears to be a serious right knee injury.
Allen was making a cut toward the sideline on a passing route when he went down. He ripped off his helmet as trainers began tending to him, and was helped into the back of a cart and taken off the field.
There was no immediate word on the extent of the injury. Allen, who missed the last eight games a year ago with a lacerated kidney, had six catches for 63 yards before he was hurt. If serious, it would obviously be huge blow to the Chargers offense as well as QB Philip Rivers. We’ll continue to follow.
