Another star wide receiver has suffered an injury in this afternoon's Pro Bowl.

Earlier in the game, Pittsburgh Steelers' standout wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered a knee injury on a pass attempt.

Now, Los Angeles Chargers' wide receiver Keenan Allen has suffered a similar injury.

"And now WR Keenan Allen is questionable to return with a knee contusion. He and Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster both suffered same injury and are questionable. With AFC leading 17-0 not expecting either to return," ESPN reports.

Allen had been having a good game prior to his injury. He had caught four passes for 95 yards prior to his departure.

The standout wide receiver has reportedly been listed as QUESTIONABLE to return to the contest.

The AFC is currently leading the NFC, 20-7, midway through the fourth quarter of this year's Pro Bowl.

Patrick Mahomes has been the standout of this year's game. The Kansas City Chiefs' star quarterback has thrown for 156 yards and 1 touchdown, completing 7 of his 14 pass attempts.

The game is being televised on ABC/ESPN.
