Keenan Allen, WR (LAC)

Could still play Week 14

Allen (illness), who was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after testing positive for the virus, is vaccinated and could have a chance to clear all protocols prior to the Chargers' Week 14 game against the Giants, Taylor Bisciotti of NFL Network reports.

Unvaccinated players that test positive are automatically subject to 10-day quarantines, while vaccinated players that test positive are eligible to rejoin their teams as soon as they're asymptomatic for at least 48 hours and able to turn in two negative COVID-19 tests at least 24 hours apart. In the majority of similar cases this season, vaccinated players have typically needed more than a week to clear protocols, but the Steelers' T.J. Watt notably bucked the trend Week 13, returning to the team five days after testing positive and then playing his normal allotment of snaps in Pittsburgh's win over the Ravens. Allen will hope to follow a similar path Week 14, but the odds will still be against him gaining clearance ahead of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. The fact that the Chargers are hosting the Giants rather than traveling across the country for the matchup at least removes one possible complication in Allen's bid to play this weekend.
