Chargers Friday injury report

D.J. Fluker, Jacoby Jones, and Jahleel Addae didn’t practice all week, they’re all officially listed as doubtful versus the Bengals.

Kyle Emanuel (shoulder) was limited all week, his status is questionable.

Jerry Attaochu (hamstring) and  Craig Mager (hamstring) were inactive versus the Lions but full participants all week, they are probable for Sunday.

Tourek Williams (broken foot) and Johnnie Troutman (ankle) are out.

Philip Rivers said at the end of Chargers training camp that wide receiver Keenan Allen had had the best camp of his young Chargers career “and it it wasn’t even close.”

On Friday, Rivers joined the Darren Smith show to further discuss why he feels Allen has taken it to a completely different level.

“Now he’s realizing and has come to understand that for him to be a top receiver and play the way he wants to play, it’s hard and a day in and day out commitment that takes no days off,” said Rivers. “I’ve bragged on him all off-season…you learn how to be a pro. It doesn’t surprise me but we are seeing Keenan come into, as a player, maturing as a player & as a pro.”

Rivers also discussed preparing for a very tough Bengals team on the road and what it meant to tie Hall of Famer Dan Fouts for the most touchdowns in Chargers history. You can listen to it HERE
