The Chargers have nothing to play for in the season finale this weekend against the Chiefs, which means that it’s not worth letting key players go out and worsen an injury that they’re dealing with.
If Allen doesn’t play, he will be eight receiving yards shy from the 1,000-yard mark. The 28-year old has surpassed that the past three seasons, all of which he was named to the Pro Bowl.
Meanwhile, Bosa, another Pro Bowler, will finish with 39 total tackles, 7.5 sacks, and 15 tackles for loss.
Other notable players that likely will be unavailable this weekend are tight end Hunter Henry (COVID-19 list) and offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (foot).
