Collarbone sidelines Chargers WR Allen


San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is likely out for the season with a broken collarbone.

Alen, who had 77 receptions for 783 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games, was injured Sunday against the Broncos and continued to play with the cracked bone and an ankle injury.

In addition to Allen, the Chargers are expected to play at San Francisco on Saturday without No. 1 running back Ryan Mathews. Mathews was inactive last week with a severe ankle sprain.

The Chargers placed inside linebacker Donald Butler on injured reserve with a dislocated elbow. He was injured in a goal-line collision with quarterback Peyton Manning in Sunday’s loss.
