The Los Angeles Chargers have a tough task ahead of them this weekend when they face the Chicago Bears. Things could get even harder for Anthony Lynn's squad as Keenan Allen's status for the game is up in the air.

Allen hasn't missed a single game this season for the Chargers. However, the Cal product is dealing with a hamstring injury that has kept him out of practice this week.

Despite all the struggles that Los Angeles is having this season, Allen has been extremely productive. The former third-round pick has 44 receptions for 564 yards and three touchdowns.

Not having Allen would be a tough blow for the Chargers since they're going up against a solid defense.

On Friday, the Chargers revealed that Allen is listed as questionable for this weekend.

Here's the full injury report:

Los Angeles is already getting pretty thin at wide receiver. The team placed Travis Benjamin on injured reserve last week.

If the Chargers don't have Allen on Sunday, it would make sense to run the football often. Luckily for them, they have two reliable running backs in Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler.

Allen's status for Sunday could change in the coming days, but it's also possible the team tests him out in warmups to see how he looks.
